    Airblade Inventions

    As the title says, i`d like to see your airblade-creations.

    Are you using them as they are supposed to?
    Are you trying out something new?

    After my first try, the steering didn`t seem to feel right, i do not know why.
    The "normal" steering seemed quite good for large airships.... but in order to get the feeling to fly a small drone / helicopter, i tried some new steering possibilities. I came up with this:



    Now it`s your turn!
    What can be done?

    cheers

    After some fails, flips, too big, I tried to replicating what you did and to understand how it works, and have I built this.

    That is a quite "violent" movement of your craft, Kwon .

    My last creation you can find at my thread, where I post all kinds of vehicles.
    The more you know, the crazier you look.

    My screenshots from PN.

    I thought I didn't have any picture of it, but I have one action shot.
    After my pre-update build helicopter design wouldn't fly, I build this coaxial rotor tree cutting monster.

    WOW, you guy have some nice builds!


    My sky rover has been a lot of fun and a big help finding (2) Monuments.
    I’m going to build a new base near a jungle monument, and try to make it a Sci-Fi Airship/base.

    I love that helicopter-idea :-)

    Have you already tried using a rotor to connect your helicopter-blades?

    Ok, missed your boost idea, sorry.

    But to be honest... I didn`t see someone using the alternate helicopter-like steering idea before and i was quite proud :-)

    And i also like the other ideas mentioned above like the spinning helicopter-blades or the "Airbus A380" aRPeaR created.

    Kudos to the first to post their original design, and thank you to all that post their designs.

    Hmm? I’m thinking that air base would not be pointless, even if they can't fly higher.
    We could create a floating city and travel around the planet, and take small air vehicles from it and go down to the planet.

    Ok, so this got me!
    I kind of stole your idea to see if i can create something like a helicopter with "real" blades. It worked better than i expected.
    Top flying speed is reached when at max. height.

    The sandbox gamer should always welcome new tools from the developers...and then go and use them in ways no sane man could have predicted.

    Actually no, I was messing around trying to figure out the no lift issue with the air blades and for giggles I just submerged in a lake and flew around under water.

    Did you create your own submersible? Do you have a link for it?

    Regards,
    Sam

    Your design reminded me of the romulan drone ship. With his high maneuverability.

    I wouldn't really call it an invention, but I think it's worth showing anyway
