Macchi M.33 Porco Rosso Fantasy Plane Savoia S.21

Postby Zexe » Sat May 15, 2010 2:33 pm

I put in a request with Helijah to have the Porco Rosso S.21 plane. Within two days he's completed the model, including Porco Rosso the model himself! You can download the latest Macchi M.33 from his webpage: http://www.helijah.free.fr/

I myself decided to add my own FDM to it and instruments, you can download it here, there are two versions of mine, one with a GPS and one without. Also, now you don't need Dave's pack:http://www.mediafire.com/?jayzjmydz2t

Features: Working Guns, Working cockpit, working sound, land on water, tail view. In my version, I have also included a modified tail camera view, HUD radar, manipressure, fuel gauge, compass, more power and speed, airbrakes (flaps), 220lbs worth of fuel, ability to take off from land (more like skidding off the rwy, you'll need to decrease the fuel so the plane is lighter and can take off, once in the air you can fill the tanks back up by an imaginary UFO, afterall this is a fantasy plane), and be a rock star flying this thing. Update: I also added a GPS in it too! :P

All the instruments were taken from other planes, so many thanks to Buckaroo and of course Helijah (for making my life easier and enjoyable these past couple of days).

Here are some pictures:

Known issues: The FDM is guess work. The S21 doesn't have any flaps, but in my version you can hear the flaps come down even though there are no animations for them. But it does act as air brakes, which is a good thing since the S21 glides quite well and would take you forever to decrease in air speed. Although you can't see the RPMs, the internal browser indicates RPMs of 5000 + at full throttle. This doesn't really affect how you fly it though. Lastly, the propeller animation isn't carried through MP network. Also, the plane starts on the rwy, you can fix this by starting from an altitude of your choice.

It's a fantastic fantasy plane that blends in well with the FG scenery. ENjoy!

Congratulations to all FG's for doing this awesome plane.
Behind this aircraft I founded a great story and history, the film "Porco Grosso" recommended to me by Zexe is the evidence that we are doing the most important flight. The flight for freedom.

To have a real perspective of this plane you wish to see this video.

For all those who like this awesome film I found this link to see the entire movie (in spanish).

Without doubt one of the best aviation film ever made.
Without doubt the best aviation simulator ever made is FlightGear.
Without doubt the best aviation crew is FG's people.

Infinite thanks to all.
Thanks for sharing.
Michat.

Great! Porco Rosso is one of the better aviation films, of sure!

A fantastic thing on that movie is the realism of the aircraft manouvers and piloting. Miyazaki's family had a workshop on WW2 where some pieces of A6M Zero was made, and he become into an aircraft fan :) On a lot of his movies are flight scenes, and well detailed aircrafts/air machines.

I really want to test the plane. Is it hard to make takeoffs and needed of trim, like on the movie?

I don't know about helijah's version, but in my version, it moves like in the movie, but doesn't take off like in the movie. I guess that's the next step.

The movie is animated.... I think they overdid the take off in that movie with the bounces.

Hello, I have got the aircraft model Macchi M33 but I can't figure out how to start the engine... I tried increasing mixture and throttle but when I fire the starter it won't go. I couldn't find a tutorial on it either. Could someone please help?

As with any aircraft simple: }}} (magneto) and s (starter)

Thank you, yes that did the trick. Don't know why I forgot the magnetos.. Guess I couldn't see the ignition :oops:

Thanks again for your help. I loved the movie and it's pretty cool to fly the plane :)
