    Ugh my most maneuverable plane I have in my arsenal makes the AI fill its pants in fear, making it either immediately nose dive or just spaz to pieces at the halfway point.

    @AndrewGarrison yes please, a prop class dogfight. :) Or a "prop mod class" (mod but only prop engines)

    I have added 0.05 to the engine multiplier. I hope my affidability is not dropped down too much. cross the fingers

    I think I'm at near the max I can have from a 3D wings/ai controlled variable geometry/real looking plane. :)

    @JohnnyBoythePilot my Evo 2 tears apart at 1300mph, it has a single unmodified engine(the jet afterburner), but as soon as it reaches that speed, the wings just separate and transforms into a shaker, then it just nosedives into the water.

    Oh I know how to do that. I'm know many xml modding tricks. For now I'm happy with my racer's results, so I'm not gonna change anything.

    You could try disabling collisions if you haven't done that yet. You can try moving the attachment points if that doesn't work.

    Thats what I did on Black Phantom. The wings are structural wings where I added control surfaces to them via xml modding. However it still blows apart at high speeds if I multiply the power of the single VTOL engine. HOWEVER if I use multiple VTOL engines with the same 5x power settings, my racer can fly at high speeds without falling apart. Strange. But at this speeds it constantly crashes so I'm keeping my Black Phantom the way it is.

    Yes. ANYTHING that flies is legal as long as there are no weapons.

    XMLed fuel tanks, engines, and all that?

    Thank you Z! I did what you suggested and it worked wonders. I just recently got on pc so i can mod stuff so this was something new for me. Thanks for the help @Zkillerwolfe

    @AndrewGarrison I am running mods. I will try to force it and hope that works! :D It may be a certain mod I'm running. Thank you for the answer!

    @AeroMobilFlyingCar Are you running and mods? Have you tried turning quality settings down? Also, you can try forcing D3D9 and see if that helps (or switch back to D3D11 if you are already using D3D9.)

    @chancey21 Make sure you are reading the instructions. It clearly says No weapons.

    I was considering trying to build space battleship yamato for this tournament, but then I remembered that I'm too lazy for that. D:

    I have always been disappointing that there aren't more cool looking planes in mod class tournaments. Everyone has access to unlimited engine power, who cares about a bit of extra drag?
