You're working on a Curtiss biplane as well? AWESOME, we're going to be able to have a WW1 style battle with all these biplanes. :D

Well... If it just didn't say U.S.Navy on the side. ;)

 

This will be another fun addition to the stable.

It's really slow and not very safe to fly. But right now it is my favourite plane. It's quite fun to cruise around with it.

 

I have some problems making the flight model work nicely. The top speed is only 121 km/h. 

Exceeding it in a dive for instance will make it stall and it is very difficult to recover. It's similar to my Camel port, which suffers the same problem. On the other hand it's probably realistic, as these planes disintegrated sometimes when being pulled out of steep dives as far I know.

Everything else is quite fine (turning, climbing, etc)

 

And yes, I think we need more biplanes.

The cockpit is actually fun to build. I managed to squeeze in a radio and a mobile dock so you don't have to live without your phone.

Download test version v0.5

 

no redistribution yet please :)

 

 

You will need a lot of runway, top speed is only 120 km/h. Lift off ingame around ~50ish.

I would like to set it higher but on ground it won't accelerate much more.

hehe nice vid koka, the famous fly backwards feature. Hope I can get rid of it someday : )

 

thank you. I tried my best. Now I really understand just how great the Camels interior looks, and that was made so long ago : D

Nearing completion:

 

After studying some RL pictures I realized the front part may be metal plating and that the canvas reflects light too. So I tried to simulate this with the use of different materials with different specular settings:

A few more liveries and a free T-shirt. The textures are 1024x1024 and you wouldn't see a difference if it were 512x512 tbh : )
