Big Red Mk II

Coming Soon.. Big Red Mk II

Reduced wingspan from 120 to 96 inches, changed Radial to Desert Aircraft Twin, added cowl, redesigned landing gear, added wheel pants, and added Stearman style spinner. I want to thank Doug for helping me in every aspect of this plane this was surely a team effort.

It also has a fully articulated pilot seat camera. The camera view changes with aileron, elevator, and rudder movements.

This plane will also work for RealFlight 6.5

A good idea for next time but I finished the plane and don't want to go back and redo the wings and map them again. But I'll definitely keep it in mind.

It's a GREAT plane and one of my all time favorites. I hope you liked my 650MPH variant of the original I sent you. I was surprised it held together at that speed.

Big Red Mk II will be released for RF 6.5 after I get the copy I ordered a few days ago, but I also created a new project and plan to release it for RF-X too. It's a nice plane and I'd like to fly it around in the mountains and rock cliffs so I started working on the collision mesh last night and I'm nearly finished. But decided to take a break and post a render of where I'm at. I suppose I'll create a build thread in the RF-X designers forum since there isn't much going on there. Anyway here's a render of where I'm at. I'll go back and finish it soon. Then I'll need to do some work on the engine before I attach all the parts together to create one object.

I got a notification today that the RealFlight 6.5 I ordered has been shipped, but the delivery date is March 15th through the 27th so it's on the slow boat. But I'm cheap on postage so I didn't pay extra for faster shipping. But it is a New left over copy so that will be nice. Ha I'm supporting KnifeEdge 6.5 through RF-X now.

I ordered something on Feb. 25th and the expected arrival date is March 23rd - April 5th. Sometimes it goes that way with things out of China or wherever. It's just a $8 upgrade kit for a cheapo V911 heli I fly around indoors.

If I can find the kit it's a plane I want in real life.

Thought I'd bump this thread up. I dumped in my favorite green color to make it a bit more visible to these old eyes. It's faster and more acrobatic than the original but I love them both.

I think the main difference in the MK II is the cowl. Will this work for you?
