looks good but flies terribly. I know that u put a lot of effort to that but u missed a lot of things regarding the flight behavior. Also, the engine power and acceleration is insane, definitely not a P&W F100 engine.I t has severe auto-roll issues and its almost uncontrollable when airborne. Despite its good look I think u should have spent some more time flight-testing it.
This is one of the best aircraft I've ever seen in the site. It's an extremely nice build with lots of details and highly functional, apart from the auto-yaw issue during take-off roll which can be easily solved via drag elimination. The flight behavior is very realistic and I really loved the sequenced landing gear doors! This build is way ahead of ur level and despite the help u got from other advanced builders it's a very good work! Keep up in the same tempo and hope to see more of u in the forseeable future!
@MI 1st. F-16 is NOT a light fighter. It has a MTOW of 45-48.000 lbs.
2nd. This is a challenge created by a player with specific rules and limitations. If u cannot meet the criteria then do not participate at all. Its not polite to say to the challenge creator that is an egoist or that he does not want his plane to lose.
3rd. It happens to know @mikoyanster and many things about his game mentality and I reassure u that he is very strict with his rules in challenges because he wants to be fair and have a creative result. No egoism or selfish behavior on him.
4th. By saying that " I've made a light fighter with only default parts, and I bet it's better than some of the things you guys can put out!" proves that you are selfish, egoist, immature and have no modesty at all.
Very nice job! Sleek and simple design with decent flight behavior. I just noticed a few things that u can improve in a newer version and make it even better:
Overall, its a very good-looking plane and flies pretty nice! Don't hesitate to contact me for any help or advice!
Great build with mind-blowing features and sublime detailing. Just one remark: The droptanks should have been on the inner pylons as they are heavier and have more drag and thereafter bigger momentum.
I'm writing this comment so as to help you get a better builder. Being a platinum builder means a lot about your technique and your quality. The aircraft looks really nice, the shape is correct and the specs are close to real-life. But, why the stock wings? You have the experience and the knowledge to build wings with the triangle method. Why the aircraft tends to steer off the runway during take-off? These are rookiw mistakes that I don't like to see in a platinum builder. I expect more from you and I know that you have the quality needed to make awesome planes!
@AzureCorp It would be my honor to be featured but my main objective is to provide joy and pleasure to the players and help them through my build to elevate their quality!
@Bennet23 Take some Aspirin and avoid looking at them....
@dimindahouse Σ'ευχαριστώ πολύ φίλε μου. Ελπίζω να το απολαύσεις και μπορείς να χρησιμοποιήσεις ο,τι θέλεις απ'αυτό.
That's the best Phantom in the site and one of the most beautiful and amazing builds ever. As a Greek I'm proud of our Air Force still flying this beast in its upgraded form.
@toxicgamer88 Looks great? Yes! Handles great? Hell no! My opinion is that he invested a lot of time and effort in the aeshetic compartment and he severely neglected the flight behavior part. This plane has some really serious issues that almost take all the fun out of it. My upvote is only for the effort and specifically for the general shape. the weapons and the details.
@mikoyanster very well-build aircraft! Would love to see it with air-to-ground capability too! And thnx for putting it in a pic with the T-61L Kestrel!
@typeZERO I'm not specialized in Russian weapons, yet. Next pack may contain some russian-made weapons.
@BogdanX First of all I wanna congratulate u for ur highly detailed aircraft. In terms of building quality and handling ur Catalina is possibly the best in challenge. BUT, it has been clearly stated in the challenge description that armament and anti-ship capability will be taken into account and add extra point. Maybe, I should have established a "TOP BUILDING QUALITY" award too. And u my friend would have won it for sure. I know that u may be upset and angry but I want u to know that I don't have anything against u and consider u still my friend even after all these bad words u said against me...Hope to be well and thnx again for ur participation.
Aircraft is within rules. Good luck!
@asteroidbook345 I know that and thank you for pointing that out. Unfortunately, mobile and iOS users cannot compete with PC users in terms of detailed builds and xml modding. If u wanna take part in challenge via a mobile/iOS platform u can do ur best an when upload it just put a note that clarifies it.
@QingyuZhou Propfan is a new type of engine that's still under development and quite promising. Less fuel consumption with high sub-sonic speeds (~400mph). This is what modern airlines want from their aircrafts.
@Grroro Its the least I can do as a contribution to the honorable people of Japan and the always combat-ready JASDF!
@GCPrototypes thank you a lot my friend!
The dimensions are totally unrealistic and lot of parts are totally unnecessary. Though, its a highly detailed build and quite efficient.
YES YES YES! One of your most interesting builds! Excellent handling, realistic performance and cool design! So much room for improvement! I'd love to see a Special Ops variant in deset camo with some modifications such as V-tail for steep combat landings, some basic weaponry, a FLIR turret, more ECM and defence equipmemt and a hell lot of antennnas!
@shipster Truth is tha the project is almost 99% complete. Usually, I do a lot of testing and last-minute corrections and the description takes a lot of time. Maybe, it will be my first post for the 2021. Stay tuned!
@ChiChiWerx Totally agree with everything. There is potential and good quality here! Besides all the things that ChiChi said, I have to add that I wanted to see one extra thing that is the essence of the Corsair....the f@$king HUGE ventral airbrake.....
Extraordinary build! Ingenious conception and sublime construction! You are one of the reasons I'm still playing this game.
At last! After some quite average builds you found your good old RJ! Great aircraft, with realsitic handling, sexy shape and amazing livery! Love the weapons and the background story! I really enjoyed flying with that British lady!
One of the best aircrafts I've seen lately on the site. Great handling, many details, realistic performance and a keen understanding of building techniques. This definitely going on my favorite list and I expect to see many many more great builds from you!
@Bernkastel I rarely see such a beautiful and highly functional aircraft from builders of ur level. This is a very good plane with many details. I love the handling and especially the complexity of flight controls and the F8-like variable wing incidence system. The overall shape is quite eye-catching with a lot of room for future upgrades/modifications. It's a great job and I hope to see more detailed planes from u. You should start working on building realistic wings with the triangle method and add more panelling to ur designs. Try to work with smaller shapes for greater detail. Also, incorporate some custom weapons (even from other users) and use more FunkyTrees functions for handling and other operations.
I'm really surprised from u and wanna see a lot more!
Keep up the good work!
Exceltional handling and skillfull detailing. Great job and very fun to fly! I'd love to see a Maritime Patrol/Coast Guard or ISR variant.
@Lorileni Maybe it's time to start again, using my A38 as a base!
@Diloph Time flies by! Evolution!
@F104Deathtrap Never too late!! Hehehehe.....Maybe it's ur time now to make a challenge!
@SodiumChloride Very nice flight model, excellent LDG suspension and quite good building technique and detailing. My only remarks are:
1. The rudder, in flight, is quite strong and abrupt
2. Some colors need less smoothness (e.g. the black color on tires is too shiny)
Generally, is a good-looking and fun-to-fly aircraft!
Excellent aircraft with a great amount of detailing and features! Its one of the best aircraft I've flown here and I'm more amazed by the fact that it comes from a low-level user! U r on my list pal, I've got my eye on u!
@mikoyanster OK, I have 1-2 unfinished attack aircraft projects that are around 30-40% of completion. I'll try to make them flyable and equip them accordingly. Thank God I have brand new and tested weapons (GBU-12 and GBU-24). Hope to be on time.
@mikoyanster Hello my friend and congrats for ur new challenge. Its quite interesting and wakes a lot of memories for me as it is based on one of the best anime out there!
I'd love to participate in ur contest but due to limited free time because of workload I'd like to ask for 2 favors:
1. Can u slightly increase the max part number rule, let's say to 900?
2. Can I participate with a revised/upgraded version of my last EF-45H Gecko aircraft (but as a succesor of this post)?
If all these are not accepted by u (quite normal for me) I would love to participate as a honorary build out of conest, just for promotion of ur well-done challenge and just to see one of my aircrafts in an Area88 scenery!
Thank u in advance and good luck with ur challenge!
Your friend and fan
@Wongsud Despite ur level this is a nicely built helicopter. Very smooth handling and decent flight behaviour! Keep up the good job and hope to see more detailed builds from u!
@FairFireFight One of the most realistic flight models out there! Keep up the good work!
@FlipposMC Always dominate the skies! Thank u my friend!
@TheFantasticTyphoon €700mil for the production licence and €550mil for the initial 800 missiles delivered by Harpia Co.
@TheFantasticTyphoon If it's certified for HARM then it can fire the SHARK too! Harpia Co. is reluctant to sign a MoU for licence production of the SHARK missile with a no-export clause and for a maximum number of 8.000 missiles
@TheFantasticTyphoon we must conduct certain testings so as to reassure weapon's compatibility with aircraft's weapon system. Also, maximum direct amount available is 600-800 missiles. For more missiles we need further national approval and another contract.
@toxicgamer88 Thanx for the defensive words but I really accept any constructive criticism as long as it's made with a good will! Anyone has its own subjective criteria for the builds in SP...
@mikoyanster thnx a lot mate!
@Viper3000ad very nice built with many unique details. Happy to helped u and prod to see u evolving ur abilities and ur skills! Εύγε!
@RamboJutter General shape and configuration is amazing! Flight behavior is excellent, though I'd like to have some yaw control (pilot's POV speaking). The biggest WTF is the cockpit...it looks so unrealistic and funny! I bet the F-2 variant will incorporate some changes on that.
@Viper3000ad Very fun to fly and a great job! Its easy to fly and sfter some try-and-error u can land it quite smoothly! Nicely done project, Im proud of u mate!
@BandicootNewSnipes very good build for ur level of experience and a lot of work from u. Regarding the flight behavior, I will agree with other users who told u about the turning performance and overall stability. Also, in ur description u say that F-4 has been retired from HAF. I will say to u to do a more thorough research as F-4E still serves with HAF in 338 Squadron "Ares" and only the RF-4E variant has been decommissioned, but in 2017and not 2015. Nevertheless, u built a cool plane and I hope to see more of u in the future.
@JoddyFubuki788 @OC3LOT1142 @Sarin @LordSatan Thank u guys for ur comments and all the support. Due to increased work I had to slowly build n test it but it turned out pretty well as it seems. I got more projects in my sandbox and many surprises to come. Thank u again!
@Sgtk Thank u a lot for ur kind words! RamboJutter showed me the camo technique and after some practice its quite easy. Hope u enjoy flying it!
