Ether Vapour

27.2k JovianPat  5.9 years ago
Auto Credit Based on Garuda1ITalisman's Construction Challenge 2 | Modified

NOTE : Untested in low physics. For @Garuda1 's Construction Challenge 2. My first Hypnoplane attempt. Was designed to blend with the clouds, as if the plane itself was made out of water vapour. This is one of my planes with a working yaw, and it works beautifully. If you want to take off from water, throttle up before you sink. Top speed : above 500 mph.

    @JovianPat I made my own small Ether series using the paint style... though those will never be as good as this one.

    @Fjorge Thanks! I still play SP sometimes, but never upload anything lately... I'm a bit busy preparing for university.

    @Fjorge No, it's fine. Besides, I couldn't keep my paint scheme consistently myself :P

    @goboygo1 Maybe the CoM? My plane usually does nothing when I use the yaw.

    @JovianPat the secret is making the control panel at the same level as the center of thrust, or mass, or lift, i cant remember witch.

    @goboygo1 Not much, I usually make a plane with working yaw by accident. I never thought the yaw turns out to be this good. Sorry :(

    @JovianPat i wasn't asking for it, i was asking if you knew it.

    @goboygo1 I think the plane must be rather big (especially the wings), and the control surfaces are placed as far as possible from the CoM. Hope this helps.

    @humza786 ok. Thanks for the info! Making this plane can be both easy and challenging at the same time. Make a small body, place huge wings with large control surfaces, and don't forget to use structural wings or your plane will just shatter in midair.

    tested in low physics works well
    ive always wanted to mak a plane like this

    @JovianPat True, true. I've pretty much forgotten all he planes so when the deadline comes, I'm giving them all a good test run
