MAK - H - 3 Harpy heavy - lift helicopter

4,414 FlyingPotato_131  5 months ago

When Lithium Aerospace was tasked with designing a helicopter they took the simplest approach - MOAR ROTORS!
Some would argue that the Harpy is technically a quadcopter but here at Lithium Aerospace we call it the way it should be called, especially considering how much it can carry (I didn't actually measure it, instead I carried a plane around)
The helicopter has side doors and a rear cargo ramp as well as space for passengers and 2 magnets. The control system is rotors only, no gyros (for those asking). Hovers at just less than 40% collective when too high for ground effect.

    @olympus333 I really don't know what else to do, likely a collision only problem. Also, nice avatar!

    @FlyingPotato_131 After you said there were no collisions, everything became clear. Collisions occur, and because of this, the details cling. I'll fix it, what else can I do now?...

    @olympus333 that is very weird, I haven't been able to replicate it even once. Maybe the download corrupted and some part properties (like no collisions) are missing?

    @FlyingPotato_131 FPS does not sink, at the level of 60 frames per second. The propellers are destroyed, because of this, the whole helicopter explodes in a second

    @olympus333 I tested low and medium physics, works universally. What FPS are you getting and which parts get destroyed?

    @FlyingPotato_131 I have a pirated version of the game, as I downloaded it, I didn't change any settings at all except the graphics

    It doesn't work. Destroyed when Group 1 is activated

    Sharp looking aircraft inside and out, flies really well in VR.
    Here's a link to a short you tube video showcasing it on my channel.
    Thanks for building this one.
