Saturn V Rocket Request.

If anybody could make a model of the Saturn V rocket that would be great. Especially if you made it come apart in stages. That might be something to do for any of you out there that are bored.....

I didn't put it in the aircraft request because, it's not much of an aircraft, more of a spacecraft. If there was a spacecraft request thread, I would put it in there, but there isn't one

You know, After my V-2 I lost ambition to do this. Dunno how to get teh whole stage thing worked out. Especially since the thruster would have to be located in a funny location and not really make the rocket behave well. I'm sure it can be done but getting it to fly will be the hard part. It should also be fairly straight forward to do. rcplanefubar... wanna chime in here? sort of up your alley.

I would much rather do the the space shuttle at least that way you have something to glide back down to the runway with.

But thanks for thinking of me

The Space Shuttle would be a very cool addition to the simulator, even if it was just for landing.

Hope this helps!

Or you could just have alot of engines, each stage engine having a bit more fuel than the one before it. If you used turbines, you could time how long it takes the first engine to run out of gas, and set that time as the spool up time for the second engine.

thats a pretty good idea actually. It would be easier to have the stages break off in G4. The drop able items make things much more siple to set up physics wise.

It should be easy to set up anyways, just use the 3 position switch to release each stage, there are only 3 stages afterall....But, I don't know, I'm not so good at the 3D modeling stuff.......or the Colorschemes.....

A space shuttle would be good as well, If you made it able to release the boosters then the oxygen tank......Maybe a Version of it where you put the shuttle onto an aircraft like an Antonov An-225, and have the aircraft release the shuttle...you could then glide the shuttle down unpowered........(have the engines fall off physically on the carrier craft so it just glides down when released.

I think it would be cool to have a parachute for that, Opjose once told me about some type of panel of wings that can make it glide down.
Looks good.
