Check out today’s blog post “Talking Multi Engine” over at SL Airmenship. It’sย an example of a nice innovation in Second Life flight physicsย โ€”ย a simple idea, yet I canโ€™t think of anyone using this idea in a multi-engine plane. Normally, thrust is applied in a central location and sometimes offset left or right as is needed. In this case, they apply force at the engines, rather than the centre axis, so no offset calculation is needed when engine thrust is imbalanced.
