Avro Lancaster bomb run.

Here is a short video of Legoman's excellent Avro Lancaster Bomber.

Looks good man. I can tell you removed the constant speed props did you also retune the motor. I hade the throttle travel limited to 6 hp at 3000 rpms instead of 16 hp at 3600 to make the scale merlin engines I was using last longer.

Yes I changed the props and retuned as you advised.
I also applied the markings of the Andrew Mynarski Commemorative Lancaster, which is kept at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, Hamilton Airport Ontario, (about 40 miles from where I live) and we see the Lanc in the air many times during the Summer months, on it's way to various air shows.
Did you notice any thing different at Homestead Airport ?

I see you painted some stuff. and for some reason I thought you were from the UK but seeing Canada makes sense.

Looks so much better with some color, why did KE not do that???
Question regarding the B-52 and the Lancaster bombs, why do your bombs drop better than other models do ? most bombs drop spinning (flipping over end to end) but your bombs are more realistic, how do you program them ?
I know you think RF-X displays bombs incorrectly, (bombs drop flat, instead of nose down) but that is an improvement over spinning.

I have the aerodynamics percent set to zero on the b-52's bombs is set to zero to get a usable frame rate. The Lancaster is probably the nose weight but they do end up tail first for some reason. And the Skyraider's defiantly tumble

WOW, Thanks Legoman, you just solved the A-1H Skyraider Bomber frame stutter problem for me, as soon as I read your comment on how you set the bomb aerodynamics percentage to zero on the B-52, I just had to try that fix on the A-1H, the Skyraider Bomber has a severe frame stutter in RF-X while it is moving on the ground, (spawns at 140 fps and drops to 5 fps rolling) but as soon as the A-1H lifts off the frame stutter is gone. So I set all detachable items aerodynamic percentage to zero and WOW !! the A-1H now rolls as smooth as can be down the runway.

Here are two very short video's, first one is showing the frame stutter (looks like a slide show) and the second is aerodynamics percentage zero fix.

Attachments show physics changed.

Nice work gentlemen, outstanding but it just makes me wish they had kept developing the RFX platform, those videos are mindblowing and are getting close to movie CGI quality.
