I think I've gotten part/engine/weapon configs just about finalized.

 

I started playing with Airplane Plus engines in preparation for the competition.

The kinds of engines you use in the video flame out if you go faster than 59m/s or so.  Is that how it's going to be in the actual competition?

Seems really hard.

@Van Disaster: Yes. Gun firing rates were taken from real-world stats, so 550 RPM for the Lewis, 800 for the Schwarzlose MG-16, though on reflection, both of those weapons didn't handle synchronization very well and should technically have been mounded in above wing gunpods...
They were also being fired in barrage mode, which effectively doubled their rate of fire.

@aleksey444: The Airplane Plus engines used in the video have been extensively modified. The configs I'm using can be found here.

Thank you.  I tried them, and they're much better than originals.

What kind of minimum weight are you planning for the competition?  Also, will dual-engine planes be allowed?

Triplanes?  Quadplanes?  More?

I know the competition hasn't started yet, but I want to start practicing building.  As much as I enjoy it, it's a very tedious process, and it takes me a lot of time.

Maybe a vickers or a spandau MG08? both about 500rpm also. Not sure why you'd use a lewis at that point though, pity we can't make a penalty for synchro gear.
