Not-Another-Wall-Copter-Rail

Rail Copter added 1 year ago

Hello dear reader!
(yep, using html codes now ^^, thank Zalera again)

The pointless to read part
So I wanted to actually build and upload the Dragger MkII, but I got too lazy.
Then I tried to build a 25k dragger, but got lazy again.

And when I'm lazy, I just place blocks around in my garage while listening some weird music.
And this is how usually I end up with new ideas, I just turn off my brain and LET IT GO, LET IT GOO... *cough cough* sorry.

And this is the result of one of those lazy-built bots.

Some kind of flying soccer. With rails.

Actually, this idea is not new, I had it a long time ago, but I just never managed to make it like I wanted because of that seat.
But now that it has been removed, I can make it as I pictured it!

Also, I ran out of premium.

Down to business
This kind of copter blade placement DOES allow regular steering.
I added the thrusters for extra turning speed.
Moreover, after testing it appeared that damage spread from one copter blade to another through the block between them, it's now fixed :)
There was also an issue with the weight, it has been fixed by replacing all the full cubes by inner slopes.
This allows the craft to (clumsily) stay in the air with only one copter blade.

It still has a major problem, the stability.
It is stable and can move and stop and stay stable, but sometimes it takes a WHILE to stop tilting.

The dastardly copter flipping bug strikes again :( Interesting to see the wallcopter design philosophy applied to a rail... I imagine that has many tactical possibilities, but issues with gun placement and air-to air combat..
