Arado AR-381 1.5

188k RamboJutter  3.2 years ago

Arado experimental "rocket" fighter, obv due to lack of rockets it has a jet engine but with high performance and limited fuel. It will take off the skid but is designed to spawn in the air. The pilots joystick moves as well as the controls, shape largely formed by individual panels. Enjoyable little plane.

    @Tang0five just add a wing panel into or onto a part, I use those 0.2 scale winglets hidden in decorative panels, looks and function.

    Spot on as ever! Got to ask man, how do you get fuselage pieces to work as control surfaces?!? I toyed with the idea once but found they did little to control the aircraft. Is this some sort of voodoo sorcery one can wizard up on other platforms....?
