there are some good pictures in there of the rotors. and those rotor heads are not like anything I've ever seen before. very mysterious.Here`s a ton interesting info. and a ton of very detailed pics especially around 1/2 way when you scroll down...>>>> https://forum.largescalemodeller.co...ettner-fl-282-v21-kolibri-scratchbuild-model/.
Which I AIN'T got! At least ONE thing went right... the migration to a new cell phone.even someone with nerves of steel.
IMHO, that's one of the things that keeps this place interesting/fun. But once in a while it goes wrong. And I'm trying to make it clear when I say something that could be taken wrong. If I screw up, call me out on it. I'm not ashamed to apologize when I've stepped on my crank.
thanks for putting your disclaimer about it being "at least partly a joke." that worked really well.
Hey @asj5547 ... what happens if you make the rotors turn the same direction? could you please try just to see if they actually hit each other?Quick test flight, the model fly's but will need a lot more work on the physics, now to get back to working on my Spitfire IXc
They HAVE to hit each other! Then inboard blade of one rotor will be going forward while the other is going back. They CAN'T miss each other. But that doesn't answer the question of how RF would handle one part of an aircraft colliding with another part of the same aircraft. I'm just guessing, but a boom strike might be one of the potential flight failures, so it might be detectable.could you please try just to see if they actually hit each other?
I understand what you're saying. I should have clarified that I was asking so that we can see whether the simulation keeps track of that at all. I've only ever seen the blades hit the ground or other objects in the environment in RealFlight, and I suspect that those are the only collisions that RealFlight simulates as far as rotor blades go.They HAVE to hit each other!
