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.

Another nice addition Technoid, the cowl and pants look real nice. Been flying RIF today, fly`s great in 6.5, no adjustments needed.

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.

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

I took some time today and put a beta together for Big Red Mk II. I still don't know when I'll do the official release but I think the planes finished so let me know if you see anything that needs to be changed. The big thing I changed last is it had a tapered cowl but I straightened it out, the taper started bugging me.

Share your thoughts on Big Red Mk II I have my own but am curious what all of you think. Oh, it's ready for RF-X if you have it. I haven't flown the beta in RF-X yet but it should be fine I flew an earlier version in RF-X and it worked okay.
