Would like to see a Crimson Skies plane

I created an account just now because I would love to see this be a challenge on the channel for everyone to recreate an aircraft and fly them.

My 2 absolute favorites from Crimson Skies: High road to Revenge were the Hughes Bulldog and Hughes Aviation P21-JMK11 Devastator

Please flite test, make this happen!


Big (y) for Crimson Skies, I loved that game on computer growing up.

I have seen (somewhere) a video of a foamboard Devastator flying, it flew pretty well considering.

The Firebrand is just a flying wing, no reason that shouldn't work.

Likewise, the Kestrel is essentially a P-38, and we know those fly well.

The Bloodhawk is a canard design, those can work, but they are problematic to design. I would suspect a model would need the size of the canards increased for stability.

The Avenger is a pretty straight forward twin-engine design, again I see no reason why that wouldn't work as long as it was balanced properly.

Even the pusher prop design Peacemaker should work.

I guess what I'm getting at is that a lot of the planes in Crimson Skies should work as long as they are balanced properly and have enough lift surfaces and control surfaces.

There are a couple designs that would be far more difficult I think.

I think the J2 Fury would be quite the handful given the wing placement and tail surface. The wings are pushed way back and it's not a canard design. It also lacks any vertical control surface, which means it would need to fly more like a wing.
