Stoopy is right...no question about it...whether at the "Pig Sty" or "Com-Central Wilderness Camp", chicks dig it!

I got mighty lucky when I landed here, and I'm not just talking about the free drinks, neither! Wink


Woohooo! Yessir, ladies like a well-dressed man alright.....and Fled scores another thumbs-up by packin' these good-lookin' skins together, heck you download these and you'll be gettin' lucky anywhere you set this fine Mo-Sheen down!

An "Executive" flight from the Pigsty to the JG300 Microbrewery, to check output quotas and yeast levels, afforded a fine opportunity to look these babies over....

Hey...it fits!

BTW, Stoopy....pray tell, how does that inverted flight thing work for you? I've tried it with minimal payload and next-to-no fuel and can't keep it out of the ground. Is you cheatin' or what? Wink

Is it not cool how the prop animations follow the pitch control?! I like to just sit parked and fiddle with the prop lever with the engine off!

Say...was there ever a float version of this plane? What a concept that would be....

I had a real hard time with inverted, to be sure. I dialed in a TON of negative trim before flipping her over, and made sure I had plenty of airspeed. Also, throttling back somewhat seemed to help, strange as it sounds (as if there were some positive incidence on the prop/engine mounting). I used whatever fuel and loadout the default gives ya.

Funny, I was also wondering about floats.....

The Spartan, as with all our aircraft, has its CoG just a few inches below the thrustline. This allows thrust to pull the nose down slightly when adding power to help stall recovery.

You know, I just realized...apart from the stock Cessna 172 and the addon Aeronca and a couple of Bill Lyons' things, Milton & Co.'s creations are basically the only civilian fixed-wing aircraft I ever fly anymore! Is it any wonder why? Wink

Ain't it the truth?!!!

Another thing I don't get is, the repaints so far are great and all, but no one's yet taken advantage of the interior paintkit that Milton & Crew so generously provided.....I mean, th'posh interior of this craft is just made for...uh...relaxin' in, between or during flights (the Pigsty gals attest that the autopilot works GREAT!).

I gotta get back on fr8ycat's floats and paint some oars and rust and moss but I couldn't help but play around real quick with a "Jungle Room" theme...dedicated to Pam and whatnot....
