Wingflex Does Exist

Recommended Posts

While observing the model on a free flight, my yoke somehow deactivated itself, and my aircraft began to dive causing it to overspeed. Shockingly was when everything came back I began to pull the nose up and noticed the wing flex and then quickly snapping back into its rock stone position. I thought it was strange so I decided to check the animations of the model in 'Ai Aircraft Editor,' and to my surprise, the wing does have a wingflex animation. Why isn't it present in our flyable model?

It is internally controlled by our code, we will probably review the parameters and increase it slightly.

Doe the wings flex in normal flight (even just the wingtips that bend up a tiny bit) when the lift force comes into play after rotating?

Most definitely. Look up some MD-80 pictures to see, you can noticeably see curvature in them during flight

Good to hear! Looking forward to that!

I was wondering the same thing! I've definitely noticed in turbulence the wing bounces a little bit, but it always returns to the regular position that looks like the wing isn't generating any lift as if it the airplane was still on the ground. I love looking at this airplane in the air and even though wingflex is such a minor detail, I feel like a proper wing position in flight would just complete the airplane, even if it was static for the most part.

Do these answer the question?
