Sentinel

195k SledDriver  3.9 years ago

Better-handling version here

With an airframe built entirely out of single crystals of Carbex, the Sentinel's distinctive flying wing design can withstand the extreme stresses of hypersonic flight with ease. The seamless construction, the materials, and the unique design give it the short-wave radar cross-section of a small ball bearing. To long-wave radars, it appears as a vague flickering artifact, but at 5000 mph, it's long gone before it can be tracked.

If you like this one, you might also like Wolfsbane. It flies much better and has a railgun.

    @Physoman Well, maybe consider how something might come across before you say it next time?

    It was a joke and it wasn't even directed towards you.

    @Physoman What's with you kids these days? This is your first interaction with me, and your opening line is "I DARE YOU." Learn some manners, then talk to me, kid.

    @Toaste No, this was not inspired by or based on anything. However, given how many fictional aircraft designs there exist, I'm not surprised that it resembles something you've seen previously.

    I remember this shape, aren't it from some old videogame about cyberspace glider back from 90`s? If you played it too, care to remind the name of?

    @Belloaka Well, if you have any questions, just ask.

    Yes, I agree the transform tool and connection tool are very helpful in building Aircrafts and connecting parts. I guess you could say I'm still an amateur in designing complex aircrafts, but I am happy to learn from you. @SledDriver

    Thanks, @Belloaka. It's a lot easier nowadays with the part transform tool and the connection tool. It used to be a lot more work before those were available. I don't know your building method, but if you just follow one simple rule -- never attach two subassemblies together the old way, by dragging one close to the other -- it's quite easy. Always use the connection tool to manually create connections, then nudge the new part/subassembly into place.

    Wow, so sleek! It amazes me that you would be able to fit all the structure inside what I take it our fuselages and still have it look really cool. I always had quite a bit of trouble fitting parts inside of other parts.

    Thanks, @Squiroga02. I built this by editing the XML file directly in a code editor to set the sizes and offsets, then putting the blocks together in the game by hand. The wings and control surfaces are hidden inside the build.

    Very nice build, a few questions though:
    how'd you build this?
    where are the control surfaces?

    @ChallengerHellcat Not bad. It flies well. Visually it's a little basic. I'd recommend trying more complex builds.

    yeah, but its still very amazing and curvy for me. btw how do you like my latest plane, the BNRV FDR 25.6? @SledDriver
