F.5 Swift

6,127 90corvette  3.2 years ago

This is both my first biplane and my first custom cockpit. This plane features working control stick, rudder pedals, throttle lever, and manifold pressure gauge (which is really just linked to throttle but close enough). AG1 turns on a map light in the cockpit (although it's not particularly useful). The design of the plane is heavily (read: almost entirely) based on the Martinsyde F.4 Buzzard, but I didnt quite get the little details enough for me to call this a true replica. Should be fairly easy to fly, standard controls.

    @90corvette I also upload planes with full cockpits, but nothing near as detailed. Mine are just a yoke, throttle, compass, and a malfunctioning yaw

    I don’t know how you did it, but this cockpit is amazing and the plane is very easy to fly! I could fly for days with that view!

    I don't think your plane likes me. It does a lot of random surprise barrel rolls and stalls and stuff... :/

    Actually, it's probably just me. I'm a terrible pilot. @90corvette

    @Kyriel66 I modified the XML file for the aircraft to make really long and thin fuselage pieces

    How do you make the wires which connect the wings to each other?

    @RandyAndSonsAircraft Thanks! To be fair, the way the cockpit was angled just gave a very lovely view of the trailing edge of the upper wing, and I found that somewhat annoying. I wanted to get a feel for looking down the long nose of the plane under the wing so thats why it's like it is now.

    Awesome build, but the cockpit is aimed down waayyyy too much, i understand you want people to see the interior, but they should also be able to see everything around them
