FU3 Aircraft wish list.

Recommended Posts

Jon wanted a pinned wish list where we could all list our personal favorites. We will give it a try. My only concern is if it grows too big... I don't want a single thread taking up half the first page.I vote for a PBY Catalina or a F-86. :)

Hello Tom, a good idea IMO. We should collect first a larger No. of different planes and if all agree we should collect them after a period of time to an simple voting table.My votes are for a Concorde and a brandnew Airbus A400M (instead the C130 Hercules). The highly modern form of the A400M is so new, that we can

Yep, I'll go along with Ansgar's A400M......it could be the first Airbus plane ever in FU3 :-)I would also love to be able to fly an RAF Vickers VC10 tanker. The sound of those 4 Rolls Royce Tay engines would liven up SeaTac, that's for sure :-lolChris Low,ENGLAND.

In no particular order:1) A complete B737-800 (in Ryanair colors, perfect for UK!)2) Savoia-Marchetti S-55X seaplane.3) The blue Lockheed above.4) C-130, or G-222, or some other big propeller aircraft.5) Something small. Like maybe the Robin 400?Cristian

Did I mention a VC10 ? Ahh yes, so I did :-)That Boeing 717-200 that was mentioned a few months ago would also be nice.Chris Low,ENGLAND.

I'm primarly a modern general aviation pilot but I'd like to fly anything that's good :-) The European "Hercules" transport aircraft looks interesting. As historic aircraft are concerned I'm more interested in the era 1940 - 1970 than I am in the first experimental aircraft. So, no Wrights Brothers or Red Baron for me but an old propliner would be fun. Reims in France built the Cessna 402. We already have a BAe 146 by Capt. Bazza and this one could deserve a touch-up.Then there's the Swiss Pilatus single engine turboprop. Dornier and Fokker have made regional turboprops as well as jets and so has the Swedish Saab. Actually, I'll applaud any good representation of any interesting aircraft.best regards,Hans Petter

Seagull. And I want some statues added to the cities. And tourists with bits of bread. Flight modelling would be a challenge.RobD.

Seagull??? Don't you mean pidgeon? Everybody knows seagulls have more discerning tastes and prefer HOT chips, with salt (and vinegar too if available) as well as a nice bit of battered fish fillet. When that's done, a kid's ice-cream (any kid's) and maybe finish with a 'calling card' on your beachtowel :-lolSo, a nice, LONG list here! I hope we will see some people having a go with some of these - we've got a lot of work ahead! I vote for:- Gliders (I'm already committed to doing them so don't worry)- Ansgar's A400 - it's a beast, huh? Makes a C130 look like a Cherokee!- Twin Otter (I almost did this instead of the Dash-8 but I HAD a Dash-8 model...)- Saab 340 (or similar) - would be easy to base it on the Kingair.I'll stop here but we're doing well. It's good to see so many suggestions :-):-waveJon Point*************************(effyouthree@hotmail.com)*************************

Chris,I assume that you are talking about the plane that Boeing is now selling as a 717... which is a warmed over MD80 series... which was a warmed over DC-9. It should be noted that the 717 designator was used in the late 1960s & early 1970s... the early military 707s were called C-135s (& KC-135s) by the USAF but 717s by Boeing in house. Some were even marketed to the airlines as 717s with little success... the 720 was essentially a down sized 707... after the 720B Boeing pretty much discontinued downsized 707s in favor of 727s. If we want another airliner I'd vote for the "3 holer"... the 727! (With an opening rear ramp if you please! ;-))

Hi Gang,What about a CP301A Emeraude, My Dad spent most evenings flying around in G-ASBS in the 80s.(with a friend) I have a few photos of it and some of the panel if any one would like to try it! I once went up in the aircraft, the cloud base was about 500ft! That was a very scary flight, it lasted about 10 mins. It took 2 attempts to land as my dad was cutting the grass with a tractor. The aircraft does not exist now as it was destroyed in a fire in its hanger.It would realy make my dads day if he could fly it again on the computer. He is in his 70s now.;)

Jim (GeeBee),I cannot find a suitable 3D model for the Porter :-( Maybe you might know of one? If not, I see you have a good reference airframe for measurements ;) But truly, I do like the Porter - sorta like a rugged hang glider. Chris might lose his landing 'record' though ;)PS How's things in sunny Phoenix? I haven't heard from you for a while. The Dash-8 RC project went 'onto hold' after I discovered the co$t of my intention$. I will be continuing it eventually but I'm waiting for a guy over there (USA) to finish some molds he is making for the fuselage, nacelles, flap tracks and tail! I (we) have settled on 1/10th scale for now (so I need a new trailer) :-eekFltsgnt,What's a CP301A? Please post (or email) some photos so we can see what it is. Tom (Wunder),Can we un-pin this list (just let it 'fall off the back' slowly...) and pin the '1st list' in it's place? We are getting somewhere now and a few people have indicated their intention to 'jump in' and help to modify/create some new planes! Thanks again for your assistance.:-waveJon Point*************************(effyouthree@hotmail.com)*************************
