MQ-9 Reaper with Remote Camera Ops

308k SpiritusRaptor  6.2 years ago

Independent camera to locate targets and fire missiles (the cockpit is located in the camera pod).

Landing gear - AG 1 and VTOL slider up or down (turn off after).

Camera Pod: (cockpit view)
- AG 2 and VTOL slider to rotate camera on the horizontal (360 deg.).
- AG 3 and VTOL slider to rotate the camera on the verticle (this is not needed as much as you can make adjustments by the UAVs pitch and roll to hone-in on targets). Suggest LEAVE OFF unless needed.


Weapons:
- Use weapons system.
- AG7 to dump all weapons.

Strategy: Start at Wright Airport, climb to above 5000 ft and head due north. Aim to fly past the ships, not directly at them. When close to level with the ships, level out and roll slightly in so you will circle the ships.

Use the Camera Pod controls (VTOL) to target ships and fire missile. Keep on the perimeter of the range and any missiles fired at you should miss. Can also target air targets in the same way eg. you can target a plane directly behind you and fire a missile at it.

Enjoy

    If you get rid of the crooked landing gear and spawn in the air then it’s okay.

    @BossyMr and I use mobile so I use low quality. And it worked flawlessly except for the faulty landing gear lmao

    @BossyMr Dunno, using a higher physics quality usually fixes it

    I also started using this more and whenever I lift the landing legs the craft explodes, @SwamperXYZ, you said its because of my physics quality, what quality is ideal for this craft to function.

    Would it be possible to make an update for this where the cockpit can be turned in both directions using the vtol and trim instead of ag1 and ag2...

    I wanted to say this is amazing it is the best drone I have seen but I just wanted to say if you go into the settings for the reapers propeller it messes up the whole plane. I love this plane but just saying hope you see this!👍
