ROYAL AIRCRAFT FACTORY - SE.5A

14.0k silver  3.9 years ago

#Hello there, cyber universe so i thought of building this beautiful vintage aircraft known as the se.5a, out all the four variants i chose the se.5a because it's the best in its class, this aircraft was brought to service in 1916 and met its retirement in 1918, pretty fast retirement eh! along with this aircraft the Sopwith Camel also shown its age, the advancement in the aircraft industry made much more agile and brutal aircraft, But these old pals here served their purpose....now coming to the build, i thought this would be finished in just two days but nope...took four days to complete, the goal was not to exceed one thousand parts so every time i do some extras like screws and other miscellaneous parts and later checked for the parts it blew above 1100 parts so i thought i should only keep the parts that matter and hence removed the excess.I strongly suggest you to try out the Vicker's guns for some intense actions as you fire guns the camera gets near to the sight is just a fraction of second giving you the perfect aim to take down a fleet.the landing of this aircraft is quite difficult, hence slow and steady approach is required, this aircraft will test your landing and aiming skills, i need to address this because the aircraft is quite nimble and agile....have fun people, see-ya until next project.

    I was wondering why there were so many guns, then I saw the disclaimer.

    @123Acepilot it's a hidden feature, for taking a one last bath, before drowning. XD

    Only got round to actually flying this. This is in no way bitchy but merely what I found. Pitch range is way to strong and is unrealistic for the aircraft type. This thing turns on a thimble. I like trim for ease of flying but you need to make sure it’s not stupidly overpowering - this will perform the same tight loops on trim inputs alone as it will with pitch. I know it’s your take on the SE5a but a semblance of performance should be apparent. On the whole it’s a pleasing looking build but time should be spent on researching the performance/handling of the aircraft/comparative aircraft. Hope this helps.
