Top Rudder 103 Solo

215k jamesPLANESii  one year 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! Especially happy with the level of detail for the part count! Quite a lot of trickery was done to do this :D


Stuff

  • Takeoff is about 20 kts
  • Top speed is about 50 kts
  • The switch on the panel turns the engine on/off (Activate8)
  • The throttle is next to your left butt cheek
  • Right rudder is needed on takeoff due to asymmetric 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!

    @JamesPLANESii this looks very similar to @Hyattorama’s ultralight craft called 103 solo as well… did you guys collab or something? Not accusing you of anything, just curious :D

    If you want trim, just replace the input of the elevator with: Pitch + Trim*0.5

    Very fun to blow up propeller after crashing into the ground, gives you a ton of airspeed.

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