Northrop P-61 Blackwidow

4,518 KipSqueaks  2 months ago
Auto Credit Based on KipSqueaks's Aircraft5

This is definitely my best and favorite build yet, please take the time to give it a look!

CONTROLS (PLEASE READ)

-Normal flight controls
-turret is camera controlled from two different views(when switching to rear gunner, please wait 1-2 seconds for the turret to rotate to the rear position)
• NOTE- the camera controlled turret isnt the best, lmao
-VTOL: Flaps
-no trim(oops?)
•HOW TO ACTIVATE MAIN GUNS?? (HERES HOW):
Inside the cockpit view, look to your lower right. There is a control panel. Use the arm switches, or master arm.

main guns will freeze above a certain altitude(not actually), activate gun heating to make them work again(found next to the arming switches)

blueprints and (some) reference images used:

Extra notes

-this plane does suffer from auto roll, i was unfortunately not able to find the problem

-airbrakes dont work(just for show)

-roll is controlled only by the small ailerons on the tips of the wings, not by the spoilers

-Engine “master warn” lights seen in cockpit mean nothing; remove them if they are annoying
(They will always be blinking)

-the landing gear is a bit soft(take note of this)

    It’s a bad time I start making liveries off of this plane (that’s something that I’m actually good at)

    @Madmaximus Stock propellers do not have counter-torque

    I think the reason you’re playing auto rolls it’s because both propellers are spinning the same direction make the propeller spinning opposite directions to cope with this problem

    @Oxen Drawingdatabase.com is a great website, but at least for mobile you will have to screenshot the images as it would save as a Gif if you save it from there

    Okay, I’ve been looking for a website or something for them, because I haven’t found any that have had good quality. @KipSqueaks

    @Oxen what do you mean? If you mean the source i just go to google and search “(plane) Blueprints” and find a good quality one

    one thing to mention is you might cut the horsepower in half
