After re examination of the old XF-37, I was not content with it’s performance and flying realism. This new version has beef heavily updated in terms of performance and flight model. The wing has been modified for realistic lift and roll rate. I have implemented the ability for a high speed aerodynamic stall in which the plane loses lift. The thrust vectoring coupled with the wing allows for high G maneuvers such as the Cobra and snap rolls. The rudder rate has been improved allowing for slow flat spins seen on the real F-35. Enjoy the plane and comment what is your favorite maneuver you can do as well as what should be the next project.

AG1- thrust vectoring
AG2- Cruise gyro
AG3+ down VTOL- weapons bay
AG4- brake chute
AG5- lights
VTOL up- flaps
