Bill Hempel One wing Landing vid?

Does anyone know where the video is of Bill Hempel landing a plane with one wing? Heard it was pretty cool.

Re: Bill Hempel One wing Landing vid?

Hey heres something for anyone to try...

If you have G3, you can KE real close to the ground and knock off a wing, and if your quick get the plane to rise up and keep going... hence your in KE with 1 wing missing...
I have done this around 100 times now, and can actually fly around and land the plane very simular to the video... and MAN its FUN to keep trying!!
GIVE IT A SHOT!

(PS: I think you need to update your software to the latest version, or when the wing tip hits it will kill he motor... give it a few tries, its takes just the right angle of KE to knock off the wing and keep the plane going!)

If you will go to Settings/Physics/Reset delay and set it to 0 it will also let you fly ater loosing a wing with out the motor dieing.

Also, If you will got to Aircraft/Airframe/Main wing/ Strength Multiplier and change it down from 100% to I think it was around 25%-30%, all you will have to do is pull a hard wall and one or both wings will fall off.

or you can make a new wing and create the origional to be very weak, so then you'll appear to fly without any wings.

I heard about it and had to see it for myself. That plane has some time on it. He was flying the crap out of it at the Tucson Spring IMAC in 2005. He was flying it so hard you could see the wings bowing under UBER high G-loads.

Re: Bill Hempel One wing Landing vid?

but at the same time....dont you think a plane should stand up to that. wildhare should anticipate that a lot of people with yank and bank so they need to beef up weak areas!

Youngflyer, there was not a problem with the plane, ANY wing will do that if it slides off the anti-rotation pins.
