Thumbs up SR-71 BlackBird

Here is my version of the SR-71 BlackBird.
It has retracts on the top right switch and wheel brakes on the 3pos switch.
At the moment it only has a basic physics model so if someone can make a scale version please do.
Hope you all like it.

Lovely looking plane

Excellent reproduction of the real thing. However, I seem to have a problem with it in that on take-off, something falls off and the plane spirals down to an untimely crash ! I've tried both tarmac and grass runways.
Any ideas please?
Cheers,
Trevor

Well After trying this plane I notice the left outside wing breaks of if you manage to get it to try to take off. and when that outside wing goes so does it's left Aleron. I wish I knew how to fix that. But outside of that it is a beautiful aircraft. Thanks for the hard work inky00.

You've got to ease it off the ground. If you try to horse it off, the back end makes contact and you lose bits. Tail strike damage.

left elevator breaks off

go to edit sr 71 and increase to strength multiplyer of outer wings
that fixed mine if you go too much you can really pull hard and it takes it
adjust the strength to what you want

Thumbs up Thank you ...

Ahhhhh ... Inky, you know the way to my heart. Add my thanks to the growing stack. Standing by for the physics update, but it flies pretty darned good as is ... once you learn how to get 'er up gently.

Cheers

People, this plane is not complete yet.

Please hang on a bit.

Inky00


With turbine/jet planes the trust occurs towards the latter 1/2 of the engine "shell". I've moved the thrust location backward accordingly.

The front wheel exhibits the sticky wheel problem... very badly.

Could you collision mesh it and smooth the wheel mesh as much as possible?

The enclosed edit is only a prelim. You CAN fly it off the cliffs to see how the flight model behaves.

This one will be VERY nice, but it's waay overpowered as is, and should be flown with the rates set to low for that "scale" feel.

At 40 mph it has a very nice approach, with a great "nose up" attitude. I wish I could get the Concord to do it this nicely.

The fuselage on the real thing acts as a canard type lifting body. I may need to move the fuselage lift point forward and increase the fuselage lift even more.

Lovely plane and model. I have something interesting in mind for the exhaust, you'll love it.

Opjose.the whole model has already got collision meshes but i will check the steerable wheel and smooth it as much as i can with the polys i have left.I thought the sticky wheel problem was sorted out by adding collision meshes but this model already has them so it cannot be just that which makes such a difference.We need to better understand what is causing it so we can avoid it in the future.
