Top Rudder 103 Solo

185k jamesPLANESii  2 months ago

The most fun you can possibly have in VR without weapons!

Flying one of these is about the most pure you can get in terms of flying.
This may not have as much detail as a usual one of my builds since I made it for the VR challenge, but I'm still really proud of how it turned out!


Stuff

  • Takeoff is about 20 kts
  • Top speed is about 50 kts
  • The switch on the panel turns tye engine on/off (Activate8)
  • The throttle is next to your left butt cheek
  • Right rudder is needed on takeoff due to asic prop wash spinney air simulation
  • There's a tiny yellow block just above the pilots seat that can be used to change the pilots mass (currently 150lbs)

Look at these pictures (wow)






See look? I can build low part count things!

Enjoy!

    Low altitude flying through the mountain terrain is a lot of fun. Thanks for building.
    Are you planning on making more for VR ?

    We added a new feature that hasn't been released yet that makes engine/wind/etc audio quieter when flying from the cockpit camera. I tweaked the XML of your camera part to disable that so when the update goes live your audio won't be quiet since this is an open cockpit.

    You had to use the challenge tag to enter. So don't blame me.

    Also...and I swear I didn't know this when I commented, could you please uncurate and recurate my Hover Jet Sled-VR? I updated my tags without reading the rules on curated content.

    Can you make the gauges and things bigger? I find that 1.5x as large as you would normally works best with VR
