D77H-TCI Pelican

9,067 Ryster  3.4 years ago

"The D77H-TCI Pelican serves as a multi-role purpose aircraft. . The dropship is fully capable of atmospheric and\or limited spaceflight and can land almost anywhere without difficulty making it the primary troop transport of the UNSC."

-Halo Nation

I'm Proud to finally release this. I spend a month building, balancing and tweaking it. I'm realitively new to this game, but spent a lot of time on it and made it as realistic as I could. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

*Controls*

Levels out at about 55% throttle. Flies like a tanky VTOL but has Rear Engines for minor speed increase used for cruising only. As for weapons, it's equipped with a chin-mounted minigun and 6 rocket pods totaling 42 rockets.

Action Group 1:
-VTOL up to activate Rear Engines*
-Trim down to hide Landing gear
Action Group 2:
-VTOL down to raise Bay Door

*When using Rear Engines avoid sharp turns, otherwise you may lose control. also, make sure you only use one action group at a time.

Note: I'm not very skilled when it comes to making my builds actually fly, but I think this one flies pretty well. Landing may be difficult though, since the gear is bouncy. Remember you can press B (brake button) to cut the engines. If you have any problems flying it please tell me in the comments.

*Credits*

Thanks to:
@Exumer for negative weight block (used to move COM beyond normal limits)
@wcjm for unlimited fuel block (this beast burned all her fuel in less than 5 mins)
@mattmck for xml scaled parts (used for the cockpit as well as other areas)

    I re optimized the controls so they would be better for me to control but a few seconds after liftoff it just randomly explodes and i dont know why

    It's a great creation with great detail, but it's very hard to fly. It's still an awesome creation

    I can probably figure out a way to get it to balance out.

    Ooh that's odd... I only have control issues when the cruise (rear facing) engines are activated when taking off. Otherwise it's balanced pretty well... I might have to make a new version that flies better.
