The Kamov KA-26 "Hoodlum" (ICAO: KA26 / WAKE: LIGHT) is a Soviet/Russian light utility helicopter with co-axial rotors. Created in Second Life by Michie Marine, the aircraft was based on the real-life Ka-26 designed and manufactured by Kamov.

Background

Designed at the beginning of the sixties, the real-life KA-26 was built for maximum simplicity and versatility as a "lifting system" consisting of the powerplant, contra-rotating rotor assembly, cabin, landing gear and twin endplate fin tail unit. Loads and containers of various kinds could be installed immediately behind the cabin, beneath the rotors: a pod for six passengers, an open platform, tanks for liquid or solid insecticides or other products, and spray bars for agricultural use.[1]

Michie Marine's KA-26 comes equipped with detachable passenger pod and crop-dusting attachment, as well as a basic heads-up display (HUD) and working doors. The KA-26 does not use the standard cylic/collective controls and physics, ubiquitous in Second Life helicopters. Instead Michie Marine has opted for a system where the pilot physically tilts the helicopter down to make it move forward while using the pg-up/down keys to increase/decrease vertical movement.

Features

  • Pilot's heads-up display (HUD) attachment with:
    • Spray on/off, payload selector, auto-cruise, camera control and engine on/off switches.
  • Animated components (main rotors, doors, rudders and elevator).
  • Optional payload modules:
    • Passenger pod with x6 seats and rear doors.
    • Crop-dusting attachment with particle spray.
  • x2 variants provided (light and full).
