ES-48 Mimic SC-1

27.8k SteadfastContracting  5.3 years ago

Made at the request of @Squirrel for him and to say thanks for doing a great job at keeping this site clean and happy and functional. Also @Squirrel, you've helped me individually a lot so thanks for that as well. I'll give controls in a minute. Trust me, you'll want to see them to unlock the cool features.

INSTRUCTIONS-
-Act. 1 is used to turn on Attack Mode with VTOL down. It works just as well with VTOL up but you can't launch missiles without exploding.
-Act. 7 is used to unload all missiles.
Act. 8 toggles the main engines (I think).
_________________________________________________________________
.
NOTES-
-Don't fire guns with Act. 1 on and without the VTOL completely up or down. Have fun!

    @GluonicGaming Okay. Well when you're done with it let me know because there is one other person who wants to work on it.

    @JovianPat I can try that next time, but I personally don't think that's it.

    @SteadfastContracting Maybe don't use rotators for flaps. Use regular control surfaces instead.

    @GluonicGaming It's fine, I've just been waiting for you to say you're done with your part. If you don't feel like working on it and/or you want to drop out of it then just say. It really won't hurt any feelings.

    Really cool design! Maneuverability is pretty good, but it kinda wobbles on low speeds.

    This is AWESOME! How did you launch all the missiles at once?

    @Squirrel It was the same for me. Anyway, I'm glad you liked it.

    @SteadfastContracting I tried both, personally preferred the VTOL down, but its good that you can adjust it to whatever your preference is!

    @Squirrel I'm very glad you like it. The bullet spray is purposeful too. I also scaled the exhaust by XML Editing. Try just Act.1 with the VTOL bar in the middle. I believe it is more agile. Just don't forget to not shoot the guns. (bad grammar, I know)
    Did you try it with the VTOL bar up or down? They both work and give slightly different flight effects.

    @SteadfastContracting I thought this was a mediocre plane first. Handling was okay, but a bit sluggish and a bit bouncy... But holy cow, that changed after the activator 1 and the VTOL down. The flight was smooth, the speed was fast and that exhaust plume when you activate the engines is very satisfying, and them guns... bullets everywhere :D
    A great and pleasantly surprising build. 10/10 would fly again.
