Tank Tread Test

1,402 TwentyFour  1.8 years ago

A test for semi-realistic tank treads in simpleplanes. Try driving it at the proving grounds. Becareful when braking.

Yaw to steer
VTOL to drive

    @jamesPLANESii Yeah, this was only an experiment to see if the concept would work. Thanks for the feedback.

    If I were you I’d probably increase the turning power and horse power to about 50, scale the wheels so they’re flatter, reduce the brake torque to about 1 for each wheel, and decrease the max angular velocity to about 30, for realistic performance.
    Also I’d change the controls to roll and pitch or roll and yaw.

    Omg I’ve been thinking of this technique for ages but never been bothered to build it...
