Bristol Scout type D

Postby LesterBoffo » Fri Nov 17, 2017 1:54 pm

Another WWI aircraft from Fighter Squadron WWI sim. The Bristol Scout was a late 1915 scout "fighter' that was made in limited numbers.

It was a small counter to the Fokker Eindekker, although it was superior in many ways to the other Entente scout aircraft of it's era that ended up taking on the Fokker Scourge, it wasn't a big player in this regard.

In the sim it's flying OK. I have a couple of little operational nasals for fuel delivery and engine 'coupe' cutting of the ignition I'm working on.

:lol: :lol: How about an FE2 or 'arry Tate while I'm at it? Someday I suppose, there's a lot of Allied two seaters I'd like to make.

Many of of these mid-war Allied fighters had over the wing machine guns, set up on a pivot to allow the pilot a somewhat easier time of changing out the 47 round ammo drum. I think it was Cecil Lewis who wrote about flying a Martinsyde G100 with a over the wing Lewis, and he had to stand up in the cockpit to change the drum and his plane decided to flip inverted while he was struggling with the release on the Lewis gun's ammo magazine and he ended up dangling from the ammo drum, hanging onto it's strap suddenly wishing that it didn't release.

that had to have been extremely frightening... surely a brown-trousers moment...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

Looking great, Lester! Hey, could you possibly make a Brewster F2A Buffalo for FlightGear? I know it isn't a WW1 aircraft, but it was built right before and during the early years of WW2. I would absolutely love to see this fantastic and unique aircraft in FlightGear, and I know you are great at making aircraft for FG. Please let me know if this is possible for you.

@ Fighterace, probably not in the near future, too many other planes in pipeline.

A video showing some of the features of the Scout.

Bristol Scout first release, Some notes,, Coupe switch and Fuel handpump are optional, you can fly it like a 'normal small GA or reduce throttle to 50% and use the ignition coupe switch to reduce power like it was done in the day. Use the brake or button "O" trigger control on your joystick or either of the period or comma keys. Lots of torque when under full power. Trim mixture from full rich to get full RPM's, watch RPM gauge with brakes on and full throttle, 20 strokes on the hand pump to open fuel tap.

It's quite aerobatic in an antique aircraft sort of way.

Welcome Wayne enjoy. It will have some future 3D interior work to clutter up the wood paneled dash more.

I took it for a flight, and apart from the "b" key cutting off the engine but not turning it on again (I understood it was a blip / coupe switch, not a turn magnetos off completely switch?) it was great! I flew it at BGBW yesterday, with fifty knot winds... took off with no engine and was still climbing :)
