AA Dropout

6,381 GrumpyRacing  3.2 years ago

*trembles* ... as soon as the words "I promise, I'll quit" flew out of my lips I knew it would create yet another moment of disappointment for my mother. I put the phone down on the table and watched my hand as it started to shake... great. It's barely been 48 seconds since I intially agreed to join, but I'm alteady doomed to dropout.

Eagle Pass tournament entry. Based on @GeekPride 's design (thank you thank you for letting me use your plane as a base to shake!), this is a "shaker" glider. Self-powered up to ~1200 mph through the race. For whatever reason i couldn't go faster with the props removed, so they stayed (No fuel included though!)

    Sorry for the delay on that man, I'm sure you have it by now. I pulled the horsepower to minimum and with no fuel and tweaked settings they stopped exploding. @Geekpride

    Impressive stuff! How did you keep the engines from exploding at high speeds? When I tried turning the Trembler into a glider, the engines overspeeded, exploded and blew it apart!
