I really would love to see this feature in IF !
Towed … 🛩
Personally I think they should (the tow plane) either vanish or automatedly rerurn back to any uncontrolled airfield
How cool would it be if you could sent a assist form so someone from IF could click on you and toe you to where you would like to go
Next time please give the source of those images as some of them may not be there
This was before that was required.
If you want to glide go to 15,000 feet in a GA and then cut the throttle.
YES YES YES
We need more GA and this is a good type of GA to put in IF
This was created in 2015
Nope, as they are heavy and not designed for this they donf glide well
That would be awesome, but that would probably require a tow plane mechanic. If that can be implemented, I’m all for it!
Or you could partner up w/ another person and they give you a tow. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a va where you could sign up for lifts at certain times, or make it like pushback where there aren’t any tow carts you could just line up and take off and once you reach like 3000 feet you loose the ability to control engines.
I have a friend who already made a group for gliders. its pretty interesting
In Infinite Flight? I couldn’t understand that as gliders really haven’t even been a topic of discussion for implementing recently
It would be cool, but as @Cessna_Driver said, we would need a tow plane! It is an amazing idea, though! :)
well if you put your mind to it anything is possible. as of right now of course there isn’t a glider in the game. But he uses a cirrus as the glider and the super decathlon as the tow plane. hes young but i support his ideas
We would also need thermals, but I’m definitely game for adding gliders. Excellent suggestion.
Yeah, I could see that the Cirrus is a glider like plane
Great ideas! I think biggest challenge would be modeling turbulence effects from prop wash, tow rope and tow release. I believe it’s easier said than done but doable :)
yea its very neat if you try it out
