Virtual F5U "Flying Flapjack...

Recommended Posts

Tonight I followed an ad link on our main page here, and took a look at a trailer for "Heros In The Sky". Suddenly, in all the flash and snazzle of the air combat, an F5U zipped by. I don't see HIS as being my cup of tea, but was wondering if any of you have come across this plane in any other flight sim... and if so, how did it fly?

Well.. some ideas are simply better off left on paper...

 

Like this psycho... sorry for the 'tanget line' on this subject, but you get the idea... extremes are always dangerous to play with.

I wonder where that pic. was taken. I know California made those exaggerated "Ape Hanger" bars illegal years ago.

If they had ever gotten it up in the air, it might have turned out to be an awesome fighter. But jets came along and obsoleted all prop fighters.

Hello all

actualy I was interested in this concept some time ago

and I think that the idea was not bad, but they didnt have technologies

we have now, so the plane was difficult to fly.

What if we build similar plane today? with computers, FBW, turboprop engine.

I think that it would be simplier than MV-22 (Osprey, tilt rotor) but stil have stol capabilities

it wouldnt be fighter of course but good for CAS missions

you can see here what I tried in strike fighters:

Yes, but has anyone here ever seen it in another sim, and, hopefully, flown it? (I imagine the flight model would be very hypothetical)

 

Nice model there, Monty CZ. Though I suspect that it, and the F5U, would have terrible downward visibility
