Airco DH.2

4,337 ALMIGHTYFRIDGE  1.3 years ago

the first in my WWI series, took me about two and a half days to build. The controls are a little sluggish so watch out. Please upvote or comment. If you have anything else WWI related please comment on my forum WWI Series.

    Other than not having a rotary engine, which is really hard to do, so understandable, lovely flyer, and it’s my favorite WWI aircraft so bonus points there, amazing work

    @VerldVarIII feel free to tag me on it once it's done, if you make it. Also, a bit of feedback as I was in a hurry when I first commented here:

    You should work more on performance. I'd expect a fighter like this one to roll a lot better, and not to accelerate as quickly. You can get realistic top speed and realistic acceleration by reducing drag and reducing engine power. Also, you can make far better wings with fuselage blocks, With rectangular wing shape that you have on most WWI planes, you can have perfect airfoil with only a few parts per wing.

    I'll definitely try that @EternalDarkness

    I don't remember seeing any Airco's on the site. Nice work.
    I suggest Hansa Brandenburg W.29. It's not a very common build, and it's somewhat unusual and interesting.

    I think you should build a Sopwith Camel as well. I have posted one. Check it out!
