Do it! That would be a great addition for the "cr*p" AC, and it would be hilarious! I want to see this in a sim, not a stupid arcade like SWON. (Pukes at mention of name) That game wasn't even fun as an arcade game. Good thing I got the demo instaed of the full thing.

The nose was clear for carrier landings. This thing had a minimum speed of 40MPH at almost a 45% angle. It was a first try at VSTOL.

Whats funny is I also modeled the J7W1 a few months ago for fun like the F5U. I was thinking of making like a nice little animation of a fight between the two in 1948 or something.

Hey Gibb,

Many of us are hanging out for the PBY cockpit to be completed hopefully for the release of PF.

Some of the IL2 FB/AEP and PF community have even sent small contributions via your website for the PBY Project.

Previous responses from you suggested you were
"too busy" becuase of new job committments, but I see there is time for other things than the PBY.

Poor little "stupid" boy, before calling someone stupid, make some researches or go back playing Crimson Skies!

This is the V-173, an aerodynamic testbed, which actually flew, but the "Flying Pancake" never flew!

You're probably that kind of players who knows nothing to aviation history and makes some theater drama on the forums when your dream toy doesn't fly like in a Ben Affleck's movies! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yes, says the V-173 flew and the X5U prototype was constructed, but says nothing about it flying.

Korolov
05-22-2004, 12:21 PM
I don't see how that means that it COULDN'T fly; if the concept was valid, as proved by the prototype, why not.

I've heard this thing (V-173) had horrible stability problems, and that the cranks for propellers were so long and complex that were a constant source of trouble. The big propellers were so big it had to use extremely high landing gears, giving rise to severe restricted views during taxing and take-off/landing ops.

I think all this lead to program cancellation.

I remember using the Shinden, all the people wanted to play with me because I dodge every shell, lol the screen filled with shells and airplanes attacking me and dodging and firing a lot, specially at bosses.
Also my favorite arcade game was 1942 and 1943

The prototype for this plane, the V-173, did fly. More than 200 times. Lindbergh even flew it. It was not possible to stall or spin it. However, the XF5-U only made tether tests, the flight tests were cancelled.

Given the success of th V-173 program there is every reason to expect the XF5-U would have flown beautifully, but it wasn't ready until 1947-48, and by then there was really no point in having prop-driven fighters unless you just couldn't afford jets.

This airplane was designed to take off and land at around 40-45 mph.

Gibbage1
05-22-2004, 11:37 PM
You are correct. This one did not fly, but the earlier prototype did.

What you see in the screenshot is maybe 2 hours max. I modeled it for fun. Just like most people fly flight sims for fun. I dont plan on doing any more work on it. I have tons of aircraft that I have modeled for fun. Just like the J7M1 Shinden. I have that on my hard drive also. The flying flapjack is NOT taking any of my time away from the PBY. Trust me.

Wow..you made a model of the J7W? How often does Badsight beg you to complete it? As for me, I'd settle for just a screenshot of your Ki-43 when or if its finished. Of course I can't make people breach contracts and leak info. Nor would I want to.
