Scout Miro

215k jamesPLANESii  7 months ago

A generic plane! (wow)

Also my final build?






The Scout Miromoro is basically a mix of all of the GA planes, made between the 1940s and 1970s. The exterior is mainly based off the Piper Cherokee, with a bit of Robin, Beechcraft, Grumman and Mooney. And the interior is based off the 1950s Cessna interiors with a bit of Cherokee again. The outcome is basically the most generic GA plane you've ever seen... XD


The aircraft depicted here is a mostly unmodified example, but with a retrofitted IFR radio stack and a repainted exterior, probably done in the 90s. It's engine is an early Continental 0-470 with a power output of 225 HP, with a Hatzel 80" propeller attached. I have tried to replicate the power and thrust output as best I can to the limited data that is available on the Internet. Performance is mostly based on the Cessna 180 (with the same power plant) and the Piper Cherokee Warrior (with the same wing and overall design).


Features:

  • Fully functioning, VR ready interior (a bit to high performance cost to be curated though)
  • Realistic (as SP will allow) engine management, including mixture, realistic fuel burn and RPM adjustment
  • Detailed model including modeled engine, opening doors and cowling, movable sun visors, fully functional cockpit (or at least for what SP will allow), moving oleo suspension, smooth aileron movement
  • Checklists :D
  • Parking brake that uses the wheel brakes
  • Pitch and rudder trim
  • Fully IFR capable thanks to Spillo letting me use his radio stack from his Cessna 172 (Don't ask me how it works, it's just magic to me XD)
  • Rivets!

Controls:

  • Act 1: Open doors
  • Act 2: Open cowling
  • Act 3: Taxi lights
  • Act 4: Landing lights
  • Act 7: Starter motor (But you will need to push the mixture and prop in and add a little throttle to getvthe engine started)
  • Act 8: All the other lights, and the master
  • VTOL flaps
  • Trim: Pitch trim only (there is a hidden lever behind the rudder trim if you want to adjust it and you're on PC/mobile. If you're in VR, just use the wheel at the bottom)

All other controls require something to be clicked in the cockpit!


Pics and Gifs!

Stall:













Again, credit to Spillo for the radios!
Also credit to BaconEggs for disabling the drag, so it should run a little smoother on low end devices than the performance cost suggests. ;)

Enjoy!

    Also we still can’t do differential braking besides with airbrakes—bummer since a lot of small aircraft have free castering nose wheels and can only steer on the ground with brakes!

    Ok when I saw “parking brake that actually uses the wheel brake” I was really confused. So I tried to figure out how you did it by checking the wheel’s xml but then I realized the buttons input is just brake! Genius, I never would have thought of that.

    Unfortunately though, it’s not exactly perfect because it still slides a little—the engine power is stronger than the brakes and increasing the braketorque is obviously bad so pistons might still be better.

    They really need to let us use ft expressions for braking power but still nice idea, I’m definitely going to use that

    Idk how on earth I missed this, but great work as always. After flying GA airplanes this is surely realistic. Would you mind if I borrowed the color pallet for my next build? I can't figure out how to add more colors lol

    @ChamDel78 It's based on a lot of GA planes :)
    But yes, the overall proportions are based on the Piper Cherokee

    @jamesPLANESii yo man I just published the plane, check out my mixture code, it's super simple! And maybe spotlight again ;)

    @ThereIsNoahScape I made a code in the engine that makes the engine power follow a weird sine curve that imitates the shape of the engine power vs mixture amount, and I made it adjust depending on altitude, so you'll need leaner mixture at higher altitude. I also added a hidden jet engine to simulate the fuel burn depending on your mixture. It's kinda complicated and I don't remember the specific codes rn lol

    How did you do the mixture? I'm making a prop and I have a mixture lever, but idk how to do it. There's also a "condition" lever but we don't talk about whatever that is

    @jamesPLANESii Congratz!
    The plane is in player content, well done!!
    Nice idea of bolt label and interesting cockpit design.
    (Please don't make it be your last build lol)
