  1. So after fiddling with BG servos a bit more, I decided to give my F-14 some more love and completely visually revamp it. I managed to greatly reduce wing flopping as a result of G-forces overpowering the small servos, so this should be a bit more enjoyable to fly. Grumman F-14B Tomcat Parts: 256 Weight: 29.3t Length: 14.2m Top Speed (asl): 315m/s F-14B Tomcat on KerbalX
  2. This Craft has been updated, Here is the new Topic: F-14 "Tomcat" Replica with full swing wing functionality Parts: 122 Weight: 20.10t Press AG1 for afterburners, AG2 to toggle the wing position Download Updated Version:
  3. Grumman F-14 Tomcat - America's Favorite Fighter A few months ago, for the Jet-of-the-Day thread, I made a functional, visually accurate F-14 Tomcat. However, going back to it, I found it much less accurate than I thought, so I decided to return. At the cost of doubling the part count, I finally have a Tomcat that I'm happy with. The Mechanisms In addition to the visual overhaul, I redid the hinge mechanism to work smoother and explode less. The result is a mechanism that works smoothly in level flight, and is actuated by only two action groups (one forward, one back).
  4. Stock 1:1 F-14 Tomcat The F-14 Tomcat is one of the most iconic U.S. fighters, ranking along the P-51 Mustang, F-86 Sabre, and the F-4 Phantom in the lists of the greatest fighters of all time. Its wide versatility, immediately recognizable swing-wing, and appearance in Top Gun add to its appeal. In the air, the F-14 was a Mach 2.2, carrier based fighter-bomber designed with experience fighting MiGs in Vietnam. As a capable dogfighter, the F-14 earned 160 kills versus only 10 losses to enemy fire in the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s. And now, finally to you, so you can take the highway
  5. I've read that the way to build this aircraft is with Infernal Robotics, but there's nothing infernal about this one. It's pure stock. After building the Moller Skycar I had a notion how to make the wings work. I started with the Skycar’s butterfly hinges, added wings, and removed the pistons which were so prone to breaking. The wings swing fore-and-aft reacting to speed changes like a real Tomcat. I had trouble with the wings twisting until I remembered that Tomcats have "wing gloves" that fit around the base of the rotating sections, so I built those, along with the "wi
  6. "Project Sentinel" Landing the S7-F14 Tomcat on the Aircraft Carrier Sentinel (Update: Video was blocked, song was removed, sorry no music for now.)
  7. Sector 7 Space Laboratories - Aeronautics Division In my previous release of the S7-F14 TomCat I had landing speeds that were high and making the craft difficult to land and takeoff. I now have speeds under 100 m/s during takeoffs and landings. It's still not the handling that I would like to see for this craft but it's flying great. The fuel was reduced, Airbrakes were added and also Canards are hidden in the fuselage for added control. After getting tips from other builders @Hodo & @pTrevTrevs this craft looks better and handling better. Each version has it's own wing position.
