Challenge for designers

Postby FlexyDemon » Thu Feb 12, 2015 2:03 pm

Looking for a real challenge to proof yourself as an aircraft designer?
Impress us by creating the Goodyear Inflatoplane for FSX/P3D.

Looking at the FSX Transformer model (just google FSX TRANSFORMER) by Andy Johnston, I’m sure even the inflating/deflating part must somehow be possible.

There was a wheeled, a (single) float, and a 2-seater version created.
