-Basic Description

This craft is a stock replica of the Boeing 747-8. This craft was largely inspired by the excellent works of Gman_builder and DavidN, whose accounts you can find here,
For this craft I aimed to replicate the exact look, design, and function of the 747-8 as closely as I could, the resulting aircraft is my most accurate replica to date. One huge source of part count is the GEnx-2B turbofans, which all together contribute about 600 parts. Admittedly a lot for a purely aesthetic component. However, the craft would have looked a bit silly with just the dinky Goliaths powering it.

-Flight Information:

-Rotation Speed: 70 m/s
-Cruising Altitude: 8000 m
-Max Speed at CRZ ALT: 254.7 m/s
-Stall Speed: 45 m/s
-Maneuverability: Slow, but Responsive.

-Action Group 1 toggles the flaps, for this craft they are simply used as airbrakes rather than for increasing lift.

-Development Issues

The sheer amount of lag I experienced while building this craft was unbearable, by that I mean every time I made even the slightest alteration to the craft the game would freeze for about 30 seconds. If I hadn’t realised that I could save my self the headache by saving certain sections of the plane as subassemblies and subsequently removing them, I likely wouldn’t have survived.
