An F-16 Replica - Technically my first serious plane build, so go easy on the criticism. Would love some tips though on how to improve!
Note: If you want to use the navball autopilot, keep proportional below 5 and the derivative/integral below 1.
This jet is very cool!
@XionmassResearchDevt thats true
@VosAerospace aww man. Na. Just put tad but not much dead weight in nose cone.. it's not really off or bad . Just would probably take some the rear flipping over.. or my method a lot is adjustments by how much fuel in tanks all together to do it and can add stacked tanks and hide inside others .. hey that's not cheating because I usually don't mess with mass , but have stacked different fuels inside others and such ..sonetimes
External fuel tanks could help. I’m not sure if the F-16 had those but they add fuel and weight to areas.
@XionmassResearchDevt thanks. how do i fix that though? i have my pilot’s license so i know the term well, but i didn’t know how to adjust it forward without losing too much fuel capacity
Little helpful advice,, its tail heavy.. on a basic layout like this , center of mass is 1/3 back from front of main wing.. Instead of it called center of mass, in the RC airplane hobby we call it COG .. center of gravity
@Freeskyaerospace yes we have
Hey, just some constructive criticism here, you could make the plane look quite a bit better if you used the fuel tank on wing strategy. You see it a lot and it's relatively easy to use. Overall as a first (serious) build I think this looks great! Keep it up!
Both you and DASX have started planes
Nice job Vos. :)
