    @EternalDarkness Thanks a million! I’ll keep them in mid when updating it soon, as for the wings, I’ll give that a try because I’m still a bit new to the aileron method but I love the look of the wings that take full advantage of the style. Glad you liked it :)

    Ok, I did test it, and I've got a few suggestions for improvement:
    1. Do the entire trailing edge like you did ailerons. While the technique used for wing roots looks smoother, it doesn't merge too well with ailerons.
    2. Add trim. Dunno why you didn't already.
    3. Move CoM further back and reduce "brakeTorque" of wheels so it doesn't nose over when you try to brake on landing.
    Other than that, very nice build.

    @EternalDarkness I’m glad you want to fly it, I’m only online to post this and then I might dissolve again(!) I feel the speed is a bit low for the model but my main goal was low parts. I appreciate the feedback, hopefully I can fix the wings in a newer version. Hope you enjoy flying it when you get round to it :)

    Please remind me to test it in the next ten to fifteen hours. I'm off to sleep and I'm expecting to be busy in the morning.

    @Datom no problem. While I can't test this build now, from projections and stats it seems pretty good. Wings might be a bit too large, but drag, power-to-weight, and the rest of the visuals seem fine.
