Biplane Fighter "Firecracker"

18.8k rexzion  5 months ago
Auto Credit Based on rexzion's Biplane Fighter

I can't stress this enough but download the darn plane instead of just upvoting, because the looks of the plane is only part of it

remember my Observador plane? You know how I couldn't make the cockpit, yeah now I can
100% handmade instruments


So firstly you need to learn how the instruments work, so here they are
1

from left top to right:
1. your airspeed indicator, each notch is 100 kph IAS, the red light under it is your stall warning light
2. little horizon ball thingy you know what it does
3. altimeter, white handle moves one notch each 1000m and red handle makes a full lap every 1000m
4. fuel guage
5. heading/runway lineup, red is north, white arrow is you, and the white lines are your runway. to adjust runway direction, activate AG7 then use yaw to turn the runway lines


CONTROLS:

Normal Flight Control
AG7 is and yaw to adjust instrument
Trim is trim


FEATURES:

  1. working instruments and cockpit
  2. camera shake when guns are fired
  3. limited gun ammo (only 21 seconds of fire!) also i stole this from vcharng lol
  4. somewhat realistic flight characteristics

du du du rest of desc...

    Oh and stall warning is based on AoA, not speed. And why turn it off below 10 meters AltitudeAgl? Stall waring often offers a short beep just before touchdown, like so:

    btw I was flying this around and for the compass there is a thing called ShortestAngle, play around with capitals and stuff but yeah set it to true or false and then it wont spin around a full lap when it could just go 1* if you know what I mean

    @rexrexThezion from what I can tell, maybe. I could've picked a worse candidate

    @rexrexThezion trust me it's a good strat. I rarely use it but it's on the KEA--the ultimate sign

    @rexrexThezion it's not that the yaw isnt strong enough, it's that it's too crisp and stiff. I would even argue that it is too powerful. It just needs to be smooth and, idk, smooooth. So maybe lighten the deflection, and add the wing in the middle. This also helps the yaw actually change the heading, yaw really does magic irl
    .
    Sorry I am doing a bad job explaining, hope it makes sense. And now I know what wing switches are

    @UltraLight alright, the roll rate and it's characteristics were intentional, they are supposed to slowly accelerate the roll. I thought I made the yaw strong enough I think it's fine tbh.
    .
    wing switches, look at the cockpit of my observador

    @rexrexThezion hey, first of all, I never said it wasn't good, I just said it was ok. I have flown a real plane before and the roll rate seems good, the pitch rate seems good, and overall speed is pretty good.
    .
    Just that IRL yaw provides a little more and yaw and pitch are the soft inputs, and roll is the crisp input, just in general. Here it takes a while to reach the full roll rate, but honestly I dont really care. You can make yaw better by sticking a small vertical wing in the middle of the fuselage near the CoM(no ctrl surfaces).
    .
    But overall good, your plane inspired the cockpit of my most recent plane!
    .

    btw what is this "wing switches" you mention with bagel

    @BagelPlane I won't use rotator switches as those add too many parts and I have to make sure the connections aren't off, I can use wing switches though, which you can find on my Observador plane

    @rexrexThezion Yeah, I tried setting it to "error", but it still makes the same sound. Maybe add rotator switches in place next time?

    @BagelPlane the car engine sound probably comes from the little car engine in the cockpit serving as a very low part panel. you can probably remove it because it serves absolutely no purpose.

    @UltraLight what do you think isn't good about the flight model?
