Aircraft designer's multi-player session

We did this a long time ago a few times and maybe it may be a good idea to do it again, back in RF6, we had multi-player sessions for people who created content for RealFlight. Kinda like a get together where we could converse freely with one another using the chat feature of realflight multi-player and all flying the models everyone created. It would be a password protected session to keep the kiddies with the smoke monsters out but this time, since there's not much action on these forums lately, I would say to include anyone who actively posts on these forums regularly. It was a lot of fun and good conversation.

What is everyone's opinion on this? If enough people want to participate, I could send PMs with session passwords to people who want to join, and a schedule could be created for people to host the session. If nobody wants to do it, no problem but it was fun in the past.

I agree, this does sound fun. Unfortunately, I am not available much for anything anymore because of school and college essays etc... It depends when it is. I'm always under the name Crasher when I want people to know who I am, but I have not been on in a while. You were kind enough to send me some "stuff" for the challenge planes, csgill. Thank you for that!

Sounds fun and I would like join in. However my internet is garbage. I can't sit on the ground without going busy if there is more than three people in the room. And more than 5 people I have to leave.

I like the idea. It's not bad internet that's the problem for me though, it's the weak computer system, but I am still able to use multiplayer and enjoy it somewhat.

Unfortunately UT, it would probably have to be a 7.5 session. All new content is supported in 7.5. Besides that I don't think everyone has 6.5. A few of us do. If everyone has 6.5 though, I don't see why we can't use both.

I figured that someone could host sessions 2 or 3 days a week in the evenings. We could take turns hosting so if someone can't host for some reason, another could take their place. To give a heads up perhaps we could start this week? I could host Thursday and Friday evenings for a couple hours.

Probably won`t be there, but I would have to agree with that. Or we could play like a bunch of small birds (pick your breed) attacking the big bird, in an attempt to protect there nest/young. Always loved watching that, smaller birds are fearless when it comes to there young, no matter the size or breed they`re attacking. I guess the system works though.

But a 1/4th scale B-29 is nearly as large as a full scale P-51...

A 1;5th scale B-29 isn't, and I know because I just made one. I'll upload it in a minute.

You guys should throw some real numbers out there to prove yourselves. And for our entertainment. But a quick search just got me a wingspan of 141 ft./B-29 and 37 ft./P-51. full scale
Danger Zone is correct, 141 ft. divided by four is 35.25 ft., which is as he states "nearly" as close to a full scale P-51. Brields, A 1/5 scale B-29 would have an approx. wingspan of approx. 28.2 ft. So what`s your point.? Do the math..
