No Final Approach!

Main photo by DeezDucks


Hopefully people aren't let down by the lack of flight performance. It's a 75m meter wide plane powered by a total of 28hp, and it has no ailerons or rudder, but it does have a lot of lift, enabling it to fly at speeds as low as 25kph.
Pls don't yell at me

I don't think many people realize just how wide this thing is, so here is a number: 247ft / 75m.

It weighs a little over 800kg, and it is powered by 14 electric engines, producing 2hp each.

It also has no rudder or ailerons, so yaw and roll must be controlled with thrust differential. Also, use as much trim as you can, you will not be able to get this Behemoth off the ground smoothly without using it.


PS: I'm sorry for the unnecessary amount of parts. The solar panels could probably have been made in a better way.

    Please, before you decide to comment about it not being able to fly at 400kph, please, look at the description. Look at the plane.

    If you guys wanna see something really cool, spawn at water takeoff, and wait 10 seconds.

    @Krmo since I started complaining about the part count, people do the same which is pretty cool, but in this case it's just stupid because there isn't any problem

    When i launch it from final approach it rapidly increases its speed up to 3500kph and become a circle? it looks very funny

    you only have 674 parts, it's a pretty good part count why do people complain ? The build is good looking and if your build doesn't have a lot of parts for me it's not a problem to had some more that make it look better.

    @UltraLight Am I now famous for my love for part efficiency ? And this "plane" actually don't have so much parts, the part count is for me pretty legit. Oh and nice experimental thing by the way.

    y'know, it doesn't matter what HP the plane has, that only controls acceleration. you could still technically reach 400km/h with the right conditions.
