Hey guys, here is my newest Star Wars build, a 1/1 Storm IV Cloud Car from The Empire Strikes Back!

Takeoff:

First AG1 for the gyroscope, then full throttle up. After a few seconds, push the VTOL bar all the way up for the main engines. Once it starts flying you can deactivate the gyroscope and fly like a normal plane

Controls:

It flies like a normal plane, and has 2 light laser cannons.

Heres some info about cloud cars from Wookiepedia.

Cloud cars were flying atmospheric vehicles that were used to patrol the skies of Cloud City, a mining colony on the planet Bespin. They featured twin "pods" connected by a repulsorlift engine, and were fitted with light blaster cannons. Each car was crewed by a pilot and a gunner.

Bye!

    I know this might be a bit too big but I have an idea on what you could build next the Harrower class dreadnought for knights of the old republic @Potato21

    For takeoff I have vtol nozzles set up at the center of mass, and a gyroscope that makes it more steady (and controllable) during take off. When you push the vtol lever forward, it makes the nozzles tilt forwards and the main engines power up. It flys because I just got some big wings and scaled them down a lot so it would be really steady and agile. That’s essentially it. Btw I’m glad you enjoyed it! @Diloph

    Love that you did this from Star Wars. And nobody ever really notices it, so you can now be known as the only one who plays this game who has made this!
