Socraticat Posted March 19 Share Posted March 19 (edited) Welcome to the "OneOscar" Fan Club! This is a standardized craft build to test your piloting skills at their smallest and most stylish limits! Everyone is welcome to join in the fun! "OneOscar" Biplanes make a wonderful addition to any aircraft collectors hangar! ("OneOscar SG" Featured) Craft Tutorial for "OneOscar FG" Below* The challenge is simple: Become a Member of the "OneOscar" Fan ClubTM How to become a member: **Build a "OneOscar" biplane, then use it to complete, or compete in, a community challenge. Suggestions are: "Threading the Needle" by @milosh "Lightest to the Island Airfield" by @azgar "Fastest Under the Bridge" by @Meta Jonez Join your chosen community challenge with your "OneOscar" and be sure to brag about your cool paint job or spin. Let them know which variant of "OneOscar" you ride so they can look at you in awe. Once you've completed that, submit a screenshot of your "OneOscar" with the addition of a link to your external challenge submission. (to get the link to your external post, click on the three dots at the top of your submission). Optionally, just post in this "OneOscar" thread; we will still know you are a true fan. *More detailed craft specifications and naming guidelines below for those who wish to build without watching the video. **Craft files for each variant will eventually be uploaded for enthusiasts who wish to fly, but not build. The challenge is to "use" the craft, express your Fandom over it's whimsical prowess, and otherwise brag about it in the appropriate thread, including and especially this one! Non-Club Members (guests) may still post in this thread, but membership will not be awarded until the main challenge mission is completed. Sample Submission: Spoiler I completed Azgar's "Lightest to the Island Airfield"! I used my "OneOscar FGXL+" for the first submission, and a "OneOscar SG Lite" for the second! CLUB MEMBER BENEFITS Members will be eligible to wear earned Flair in their Signature. All members automatically earn the "OneOscar" Coin. "OneOscar" Club challenge coins (see post below) can be earned once you are a member. Coins are optional. The real joy will be the OneOscar in your arsenal. Other membership perks: Spoiler Being a "OneOscar" Enthusiast is a reward in and of itself. The joy of piloting one of these mighty steeds is no less than absolute bliss. Once when describing his excitement after completing challenges in a "OneOscar", well unknown Engineer Ken had this to say: "It's an incredible feeling of power! And easy too! Like riding a bike, but the bike is a tiger, and the tiger has wings!" Beyond the joy of piloting one of Kerbin's most unique tiny aircaft, your membership will signify you as a certified awesome Pilot Extraordinaire. Membership alone requires a minimum amount of skill based on the rubric of the aircraft; In a "OneOscar" challenge you will be compared against skill alone, and not craft (to a large extent). As you gain experience through attaining "OneOscar" Fan Club Badges, you will have proof available that you are "Certified Awesome Trick Pilot". Not only will you gain skill and prestige, but also knowledge. By experimenting with the basic "OneOscar FG" model and its many variations, you will become more adept at configuring your aircraft for different situations and become even better known across the forums as a fountain of knowledge among tinkerers, toyers, and stunt-jockeys. Once you've completed the initial challenge your name will be added to the club database* at the bottom of this post and you will be eligible to earn Club Badges! (Badges are currently under development-Check the reply below) *Remember this is a club, not a gang. But if we start needing our own subcategories within challenges, then so be it.
