Welcome to Fenris Industries. Feel free to post ideas and requests, even off topic stuff. Ya never know what will become a possible source for inspiration. This post was renamed from my old topic Swift's Hangar and Fenris Virtual Aerospace.

This is the F-35U, it is a modified version of the BNI Pack F-35C. Copy the data from the air_sample.lst into your main aircraft.lst file, that way you can find it easier. then place the folder F-35U into your user folder. The original plane was made by Iceman and modified by me. Please check back often for updates and enjoy!

alright, i need some comments on this thing. its the ah-69, a little testbed i made from the major pack ah-1w. i'm trying to see if a normal helo can be reconfigured to use ducted-fans instead of rotors. any thoughts on this 'contraption'?

Why leave yourself to helicopters only?

Chuck some on the A-10 - that'd be grass.

A quad rotor CH-47 gunship would be fun.

got some pics of two ducted fan helos. with what i learned from these two i'll be able to construct an a-10 and a ch-47 with ducted fans.

I think you can do a lot with this. You can have a variable geometry animation tilt the fans more forward so the fuselage can stay closer to level.

Then you could do a rudder animation to make the fan housings rotate in opposite directions to spin the aircraft. :D

Just some ideas I got looking at these awesome addons!

already got most of the anims, the fans tilt forward and back for pitch control and they also tilt for yaw as well. my only problem is that i cant get the fans blades to spin in opposite directions. any advice?

This might sound a bit complicated, but this is how I would do it.

Go to the 6th layer (press 6 in Blender) to view all the empties. Select the empty that is the parent of the rotor you want to edit. Press Shift-S and click on snap cursor to selection. Rotate the empty around the x-axis 180 degrees. Return to the first layer (press 1) and select the rotor (it should now be upside down). Go into edit mode and press . (period, full stop whatever you call it). The rotor should now rotate around the same point as your empty provided you don't move the cursor. Rotate the rotor 180 degrees in edit mode and you should be done.

It might sound confusing, admittedly. I don't know of a simpler method unless someone else can think up of one.

Anyways, AC3 fan aren't ya? Always welcome.

thank you, i like to build radical designs. its to bad that not very many people make helos with ducted fans.
