Lockheed F-104 Starfighter

3,989 Macabre  2.4 years ago

I tried a more functional instrument panel on this one. I included a working fuel gauge, attitude indicator, power indicator, altimeter, angle of attack indicator, and primitive stall warning lights. AG1 activates navigation lights, AG2 activates the air brakes, and AG3 fires both missiles. Sorry that its not more complicated, my phone is a potato.

    @WSindistries @ThePilotDude @Mustang51 Thanks for the advice. I will definitely try to fix those things in my future builds.

    Incredible F-104. These used to fly out of Shaw AFB by my house

    This is very well made! It looks great and performance is quite good. I won’t even mention the acceleration since others have already but here are two other things that could be helpful. One is that the plane is not manoeuvrable enough. The F-104 may not have the agility of other fighters but it was still designed for air to air combat and had a tighter turn radius at 400mph than this build. Second thing is that you might want to enable aircraft collisions on the cannon. To stop it from blowing up the plane when firing, put it right at the end of a fuselage part shaped as a gun. You also might want to double the gun velocity as muzzle exit velocity on an M61 is closer to 1000m/s. Other than this I really love the build and the cockpit is excellent too! Superb job and I’m looking forward to more of your builds :)

    Great take on the 104, just got around to flying it, and I was pleasantly surprised! Handling is great, although as said below acceleration is a bit crazy. Only other suggestion I would have is making the cannon multirole, so aircraft can be targeted.

    Yeah, @WSindrustries I agree. In order to get the speed to be realistic the acceleration had to be too fast. I'll try to fix that next time.

    i would make 1 suggestion though, the acceleration is crazy fast maybe make it more realistic next time :)
