A airship FM
« on: November 16, 2012, 08:36:22 AM »

I hope a right post .
I have a question, do you think what characteristics (using a FM of the game) should be changed to have an acceptable FM for a airship?

Greetings GIO.

Avrei una domanda , secondo voi quali caratteristiche (utilizzando una FM del gioco) devono essere cambiate per avere una accettabile FM per un dirigibile ?

Saluti GIO.

I've missed this topic...  :(

Well I'm not an FM expert, but maybe an hybrid between an helicopter and an heavy bomber would be a solution for new FM. Unfortunately I'm a rookie and I don't know how to make this type of FM.

Consider this a simple idea...  :D

Bye!

take a look here: http://www.airships.net/ very informative on the specifications for various airships.

Mmmm, theoretical thinking more for a zeppelin ..something akin to the climbing performance of a WW1 big 'heavy' bomber, with a huge horizontal and verticle wing areas of very low lift ratio with small control surfaces & large mass/inertia but low weight - so its floaty but dull to responsiveness & suffers from wind slip. Engines would have low-end power and efficient cooling, but of lower prop driving force to vehicle mass ratio.

For the dirigible, less mass & so more prop driving force ratio to engine vs mass, less control surface area - to account for earlier design etc.

So a FM from a heavy bomber of WWI with more slowness in moving, more rate of climb, speed take-off, cruise and landing strip very low?

Fieseler Fi 156 Storch comes to mind and should be pretty close. Just adjust the engine parameters to more closely match with the information in the link I gave you.
