New Plane, Wierd Idea ...

Recommended Posts

Well, if you haven't been to the design forum lately, you've missed my obsessing on the joy's of Gmax. I have been tinkering with trying to develope my own plane and have come up with something I think is pretty neat. It's a powerful little homebuilt I'm calling Hom-E I. I am still working on it, but would ultimately like to share it with who ever is interested. But, there's a problem. The best air file I have to use with it is by the master, Steve Small. Of all things it's out of one of the recent Mustang projects that's been released. This file gives the plane incredible smoothness, finesse, and character. To put a lesser air file in it doesn't do it justice.Cruise at half throttle is around 220K. Top end around 310. Lands with full flaps around 80. Some may say this is just not realistic. Well, this is actually where homebuilts are going, and some are. Light weight and high power.So, I have a question to those that are in the know. I don't put a lot of faith in being able get permission from Mr. Small to use his file. Therefore, is it reasonable (or ethical) to release a plane that does not include *.air or *.cfg files, advise of the freeware package that contains the suggested files, and include "cut and paste" info to change the *.cfg? I guess similar to some scenery thats available.Yes, I'm obsessing. But, if you love flying the way I do, I think this would be a nice addition to your collection of planes. I would just like to share the enjoyment I get from this one, and give back a little to the hobby I love so much.It still needs work, and it's nothing compared to some of the awesome planes out now, but in a humble way, it's kind of neat in itself.OK, I'll stop now. Thanks for your indulgence!Any comments would be appreciated.Bob C.
