Lockheed A-12 Oxcart

9,132 Simplemike  2.6 years ago
Auto Credit Based on Simplemike's OXCART- WIP

Thank you all for the support! This is my first build to make the front page!

The Lockheed A-12 was a reconnaissance aircraft built for the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) by Lockheed's Skunk Works, based on the designs of Clarence "Kelly" Johnson. The aircraft was designated A-12, the 12th in a series of internal design efforts for "Archangel", the aircraft's internal code name. In 1959 it was selected over Convair's FISH and Kingfish designs as the winner of Project GUSTO, and was developed and operated under Project Oxcart.- Wikipedia

Controls:
Standard flight controls
Ag1: main engine
Ag2: afterburner (pitches nose down violently at first, then raises nose at over 1700mph)

Takeoff:
Ag1, full trim, full throttle until 240ish then pitch up and raise gear. I prefer to light the burners over 1000ft

Landing:
Deactivate afterburners, slow to under 300, main engines throttled to 50%. Manage pitch by using the trim slider

    @Simplemike I can definitely see that, looks awesome, it's a pain, but in the ends it's worth it, well at least in this case... I'm my case is maybe about 3/4 of the time. That's or I start questioning my definition of effective use of free time.

    @Ikhsan2005 using the nudge tool. I'd get the part to attach and then move it. Oh and a lot of patience
