by   101k QingyuZhou  8 days ago
Auto Credit Based on QingyuZhou's Airbus A340-300 SAS

A collab build between me and @GritAerospaceSolutionsLTD. Credit to him for the amazing cockpit interiors! And I did the rest.
We're also gonna carry out the Lufthansa A340-600 soon!

Instructions:

AG1 for lights
AG2+Brake for reverse thrust
AG3 for cruise mode
AG4 for emergency fuel dumping
AG5 activates the pushback tug, Trim and Roll to drive
AG6 to detach the tractor
VTOL down for flaps

Rotate speed (at MTOW): 190 mph
Cruise speed: 550 mph
Landing speed (after releasing much fuel): 165 mph

Realistic weight, 1:1 scaled
Very oil efficient
Realistic flight controls
Wing flex

The A340-300 is also known for relatively small propulsion power and slow acceleration/climbing ability. It's got a nick name as the "5APU" on Chinese Internet.

    Can I modify the tug and have it be reusable? @QingyuZhou

    APU is the abbreviation of Auxillary power unit. It is the small engine at the very back of the plane which provides very little propulsion power. Now you should get what I mean when I say there are five of them on the A340-300

    Yeah thanks
    I guess I'm just not familiar with flaps and lights and stuff (Also I forgot to make the front slats again oh crap)
    But one thing, if I'm not doing these lazily, what do you expect the part count will be? XD just kidding about 2000 I guess

    Mmmmmmm
    Pros:
    -I really like the modeling
    -Really feels like I'm flying an A340
    -One of, if not the best planes of yours so far
    -The cockpit interior is fantastic
    -Love the detailing
    -Very accurate to the real plane

    Cons:
    -The tug is inconvenient for SP
    -Exploded on my first load-up, but worked in the second, might just be me
    -Reversers are done lazily
    -Window frames don't go smoothly with the fuselage modeling
    -NAV and strobe lights are done wrong, and the other lights aren't edited to what they should be
    -Trim is inadequate at keeping the nose up, even at full
    -Rudder and v. stabilizer are made lazily
    -The flaps have a seam line, but the A340 has single slotted flaps without any seam
    -Too many cameras to go through
    -STILL DOESN'T HAVE PROPER LANDING GEAR SUSPENSION
    -I can't butter the bread without smacking the aft or clocking 220 on the richter scale

    Minor Details:
    -Flaps extend too quickly
    -Winglets are too big and angled too high
    -Flap tracks are done lazily
    -Interior is colored the same as the fuselage, should be darker on the inside
    -Nose cone doesn't line up well with the paneling

    Well, I like it, but it needs a lot of work.
