Thumbs up SU-27 UB on the Swap Pages ..........

Hi everybody,

I just posted SU-27 UB on the Swap Pages.

If you would like to share your comments, please read the description that came with the model and post your comments in this thread.

You are welcome to make AVs and CSs at will but please do not post new EA plane

The physics model is made to balance between the R/C model of this size and real life counterpart.

I would like to thank Doug and Frank for final editing input.

Enjoy.

Andrzej

Hey Andrezj,

Just downloaded and gave it a quick flight before hitting the rack. Very nice job. Like the model detail and it flys very smooth -- no nasty surprises. My aging eyes appreciate the larger models.

If anyone's having trouble with it... they need to be sure to update to the latest version.

Thanks for posting it on the swaps.

v/r, Dave

Thanks, it flies very smooth partially because it's size, it's 30%
I like them bigger too.


pixelfreak,
Thanks, I like your avatar.
Did you make yourself? I am asking because your screen name kind of points in this direction, just curious.... nice alien.

That's normal ... as long as KE keeps the voting system anonymous

i agree with your assesment of the ratings.
models are created in wings 3d and painted in the gimp.
then imported through max to make ready for the sim.

Lucky you ( using 3DSMAX )
I use gimp for painting also.

Believe it or not if I used max instead of DE, the whole process would take
much less time.
Every time I wanted to see the change I made to the 3D model, I had to take the sames steps literally hundreds of times ... export models as an .x file thru Middleman program, open it in DE, assign materials and hierarchy , save as .3ds file, run kex converter from DOS screen and finally import .kex file to simulator ...... and over again ....
I was really inspired but maxkop tutorial where maxkop shows the way of making it all happen without $6000+ software.
I was lucky to get DE for $150 just before they discontinued selling it at that price

Despite everything I said above I might start thinking about new design ..........

Andrzej,

Once again a fantastic job.

On a side note about the 1 ratings. In all probability they are from the same person, who gave you the second because you were laughing at him about the first one. He can't seem to figure out that he's not worth worrying about. In fact I was entertaining myself by coming up with various rationals for why he gives out these ratings. Here's one of my favorites:

#1's Interlink is broken, so he rates any aircraft that requires more than one stick to fly with a 1.

Thank you Doug,

Does it mean that if I laugh at him more I can get more 1 ratings?

OK,

I like #1 explanation

#2 He does not understand what 1 means, maybe for him 1 means number one = the best LOL,LOL

I would like to see more humorous explanations on Rate-Them-All-1 master .
I wonder what other guys can come up with....


Thanks again .... and I have to repeat it, if not your extensive help and patience while I was struggling with F-20 design problems and learning things, SU-27 would never happen .........

Andrzej

I don't know about that, there may be some limit. After all it takes time to create new user accounts, when you only have one hand to type with...

Here's another:

#1's flying skills are extremely limited, so he rates anything he crashes out of the box with a 1.

So, maybe we should all focus on modeling hot air balloons...
