Basic airship

546 ChiefBurrito123  8 months ago

A simple, basic airship. I'll be basing quite a few designs off this in the future. The airship is controlled like a tiltrotor, using standard helicopter controls to take off. These being thrust for lifting props, and VTOL for altitude. Then, when in the air, slide Trim upwards to activate the rear engines. After that, it's standard plane controls.
