Rockwell X-31 - Thrust Vectoring!

Hey everyone! Today I present my X-31, a replica of a thrust vectoring concept fighter. It can do some insane tricks, such as flipping in mid-air, turning 180 degrees on a dime, and hovering perfectly, just like the real one can. It is unlike any other plane you've flown! READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION, IT HELPS

Features:
- Insane handling - STOL, hovers, flips, 180 turns, unlimited vertical climb
- Realistic scale and modeling
- realistic speed
- Moving thrust vector panels
- PURE AWESOMENESS

Controls:
AG1: Power level 1
AG2: Power level 2
AG3: Pitch Vectoring
AG4: Yaw Vectoring
AG5: Parachute

Tips:
- Power level 1 is the best for the thrust vectoring - power level two is too much!
- use a little trim, it helps
-

Enjoy!

    Thanks. Thrust vectoring was for aerobatics and post-stall maneuvering @CDRxavier

    @TTHHSSSS
    It flies fine, but as soon as you turn on the "thrust vectoring", it threatens to throw you out of the sky. 180 on a dime sounds good but will lead to stall and...burnt stuff.
    Cool idea, although I have used something like that on my wingless flying machine.

    Try the version with out the tail or just take the tail off. It becomes even more insane. It’s kinda like zero gravity. @Ihavenorealideawhatiamdoing

    Very nice. But, btw, it is NOT a fighter concept. Yes, it beats a Su-35 (But not PAK FA) in a maneuverability (for USA it is REALLY good). But it does not have any radars and weapons and has not fuel enough for combat missions. And putting all this into an X-31 will turn its agility into a zero.

    :D glad you like it! Yeah, it can be hard, but it's realistic - you can't do some insane stuff in real life like you can do in this game@UstlerAircraftcorporation
