THE MF-XRB-1A PRE -RELEASE TEST
The MF-XRB-1A GRAVITON is one
of the best designs to come out of the MoTIS design studios..
This aircraft is equipped with some of the latest avionics
equipment and an exciting aerodynamics design makes this
aircraft a peach to operate!
CONDUCTING TAKEOFF TESTS
This aircraft requires a lot of back
pressure and trim in order to get it into the blue sky. This
aircraft lacks flaps and uses a dynamic breaking system in order
to control airspeed and maneuvering. Landing speeds are high and
this can be a bit tricky to master as the aircraft likes to sink
once you slow her down..
FAST LANDING TEST
This aircraft is well suited for
carrier operations and can be decelerated in a sec by arrester
cables but landing speeds are a bit high. So fast landing
techniques should be practiced by all pilots to master this
aspect of flying the GRAVITON...
O WATSON has out done himself on this
sleek and gracious design
The airframe is sure to get much flight time. The climb rate is
out of sight and this aircraft is not a toy! you must pull the
throttle way back after getting airborne or you will break every
airspeed limit set by the FAA. Great trim and minor trim
adjustments are need to set her into climb mode up to cursing
AIR TIME PERSPECTIVE
The alpha test pilot to first fly this
aircraft was William Leclair and he is here showing you all the
dynamic maneuvering and agility of this truly spectacular
The BETA test were done by Marcus
Robinson. The aircraft maneuvers well but airspeed control is an
issue. You must manage airspeed or you will constantly be
breaking aircraft speed limits!
This aircraft is not a fun aircraft
only it has been designed to simulate the real aircraft
characteristics of flying this type of concept aircraft..
i.e. when constructed for real world
flight this aircraft will have the same issues to be tended too.
If you are a veteran sim pilot you
will love this aircraft and if you are a new comer to complex
aircraft flight dynamics this aircraft will burn you..
The cockpit and the interior are all
the result of good ergonomic planning and a strong need to
gather the best in avionics logic in order for this aircraft to
perform its mission as A LWF..
This aircraft is using the ARC system
designed by O WATSON as a standard for MoTIS avionics aircraft
So get use to this avionics
arrangement in future MoTIS VJD aircraft...
