    So I got every engine as close to 1000 hp and my plane is barely taking off, can I use more than 1000hp? (Because it a simple planes thing not a realistic problem, I’m not trying to power a b-29 zised plane with one engine.) sorry for my bad english

    @HeavyC22 Sorry , I didn't even get a notification about your post , You can make a successor by downloading this post , save your build as a sub-assembly with out the cockpit , then place the cock pit from this post , but you cant save this cockpit as an assembly
