( I don't have G 4 yet ) But never the less I just thought this would be a nice distraction from my other projects.

If you locate any more photos of this of a better link let me know. I don't want to distract you from your work.

Ps I read a bit of that post on the RC forum about that modeling your doing. To bad it going so slow. love to see that finished.
Just don't give them any Collision mesh. That way G4 won't see them as a object that can get hit. Don't even make a wire frame for them when doing the physics. Well that is if they do become a problem.

I like your idea of rotating them out of the way for ground landing. At the same time you should add some landing gear that pops out when you hit the switch to rotate them.

If you need any help modeling it just let me know I would be very happy to help on that project. Just PM me.

Pusherr

ok still trying to figure out how to make a Pusher my engine is the wrong way



Wonder if wheels on the bottom of the hydro foils would do. but in water landing thay will hit first. Now I just have them a part of the fuselage and that touch the ground. I might have to cut them from teh fuselage and just not name them to get them not to touch the ground

I was thinking to model them into the aircraft it self so they show too. Again more then willing to help you out.

"Is Pusher Prop" Yes/No should be an available option under the Aircraft Editor.

Why don't you try messing with the system the Germans used with the Komet? Landing Gear breaks off after takeoff, and a spring loaded skid is released when she needed to land.

It's for making making my Lynchburg Lemon-aid while I'm at the flying field of course. Just fly it into a lemon tree and out comes your mix Kinda hard to do after you have had a few.

I am interested in your third image, are you going to have 4 engines in it, or just 2?

Yeah that was the idea when I made it and for yaw control just vary the thrust of the front motors.
As for the first plane you see the idea is the thrust from the fan blows out of the control surfaces. I could imagine it could get very twitchy
Then for the last one. It is a pretty normal park like jet with a VT system mounted motor. It is modeled after a real life model someone was building on RCGROUPS.com The link to that thread can be found on the first page of this thread.

huh, for the ailerons on the first one you might be able to have two vents per wing, both at like 45 degrees and it alternates when you bank
