this is the frachtflugzeuge FF-983 for the emergency Aid challenge!

history

The frachtflugzeuge FF-983 is a german cargo aircraft, ment for transporting cargo to and from major military bases throughout the world. The FF-983 was however used for humanitarian aid and emergency Aid purposes, to help relieve the country's that are in need of aid from other countries. Its carrying capabilities, and its favorable flight characteristics make it a favorite of the german airforce.

controls

Ag2- activate nose wheel
Ag3- activate lights
Ag5- rear door
Ag7- turn on engines
Throttle- propeller pitch ( max 50)
Normal flight controls

flight instructions (please read before using!)

takeoff procedures
1. Turn on ag7 to activate engines let the spoll up, if you want to have some realism
2. Throttle up
3. Wait til around 200mph and pull up
4. Retract gear
5. Once it get to its top speed it will need bearly any trim
landing procedures
Depending on height do as followed
1. Throttle down to around 40-50% as you would want to loose altitude, if you stay at 100% you'll gain alot of airspeed, and is not as effective.
2. When your at around 1000 ft from the airport, and around 500ft above it slowly throttle all the way down
3. Stall speed is quite low for such a big aircraft, so you'll have alot of room to land.
4. Once you touch down make sure throttle is all the way down, and start to brake.
5. Activate nose wheel with ag2, and once stopped throttle up to 5-10% for taxi speed.
WARNING: When taxiing dont go over 25mph, when you do and you turn it throws the plane off balance. If you need to maneuver, do it in small increments at that speed.

    @FeatherWing the width? I think the width should be done yes, I will also do ths horizontal, crap yea I'm dumb. As it is now, it's about 10 parts over 250 so I wont loose any points in that department anymore. I hope to have an even better livery this time around.

    Well, I never said anything about the Horizontal stabilizers. It also sounds like you are confusing them with the Vertical stabilizer (You might want to increase the span of the horizontal stabilizers though, just a little).

    @ACEPILOT109 ok, I think i will start working on the improvements. I'm not sure what you mean by the horizontal stabilizer looks to short, to me it looks a bit to big, I will definitely try to mock up some windows on the fuselage. I'll get to working on that, I'll send you some pics on discord so you can see what I'm thinking, I think I will change the livery as well. I want to put an eagle but I'm not to good with fuselage art yet, as well as a Crest where the numbers are on the horizontal stabilizer. This is really my second time trying custom wings like that, the other one isn't released yet, so I'm still very new to the whole custom wings, at least in that format. @FeatherWing I will be making another entry, with some of the suggestions from ace.

    alright, ima just talk about visuals:
    The tail of the aircraft looks actually very good, but the horz. stabilizer seems a bit short and in my opinion would look better with a C-130 style, still look very good!
    .
    The wings, the wings of your craft just look like pizzas, try to make the wings more square then tapper off into a point, I'm sure you understand what I mean by that.
    .
    The place where the main gear retracts just seems to blunt and not airstream.
    .
    The cockpit looks very good! but i would put some windows on the side of the plane, like the cockpit wraps around the nose, and maybe add some small windows or hatches on the side of the plane.
    .
    The livery you chose looks pretty good! But I'm not a fan of the dark grey with the black line (but that's your opinion)
    .
    I also think this would look better with one turbo prop, just a larger one, and you would get that skyvan aircraft style.
    .
    Overall the aircraft is very good, your best so far! and i hope this can be taking in a good way, being blunt and honest is the only way you will able able to improve.

    Didn't you read..?
    Point's will be deducted for it not meeting the required minimum part count...

    @FeatherWing hold up wait a minute, how are points deducted for it not being a successor? I'm looking at the rules, but it says nothing about it being a modified successor, where a mod manually makes it one, so what's with that? I'm not trying to make drama, but most challenges I've seen let it be so, so what's the deal with that?

    Yeah, just so you know, I judge each entry separately, including multiple entries from one user. Meaning if you submit more than one entry, they are judged like they are from two separate users.

    @FeatherWing yea, I might do it, just to get a few points back. Well how much would I lose with the part count not meeting criteria?

    Well, that's your choice if you want to make another entry (only 2 allowed). You are allowed to ask for help you know. We don't have a big community for nothing :p

    @FeatherWing I normally do custom gear, but I didn't really know how to do the front gear, I probably could have done it on the back but oh well. I am just learning how to do the custom control surfaces like how I'm doing it now, so its not the best at the moment. I can make another one if you want me to.

    I guess I'll accept it. I will be deducting points though.
    Just as a suggestion, but you could try learning how to do custom aerofoils (wings), with a proper leading and trailing edge. That will help the quality of your build. So would using custom landing gear.
    You don't have to listen to me, I'm just suggesting it.
