This is my first attempt to use fuselage blocks to build aircraft wings. The flaps are movable but they do not provide extra lift to the airplane. I tried to put wings inside the flap blocks, but when the flaps are extended, instead of increasing the lift of the wings, they make the plane pitch downward. Can someone please tell me the solution in the comment section. Except for that, It has excellent speed and maneuverability, and it's really fun to fly. Updated Version

Controls:
AG6 = Gyroscope (use to assist landing)
AG7 = Parachute
AG8 = Navigation Lights and Landing Light
VTOL = Flaps
Trim = Trim

    @LlamaIndustries They are made of fuselage inlet with scaled wings hidden inside.

    @BogdanX Thank you for the compliments and the advice on building techniques. I have built an update of this plane with functional flaps using the edited rotators from your He-219. The distance between the two main landing wheels is also widened.

    What did you make the flaps and ailerons out of?

    @MobyDick it was easy on my mobile, where you’re having difficulty is that you’re probably over controlling it. Once you get it aligned with the runway, wings level and aimed at your landing point, just set 4% power, which will hold 200 mph on a reasonable glide slope. You don’t even have to change your bank angle once it’s aimed correctly and wings level. The trim should be set most of the way down (nose up) and you don’t have to mess with that either once set. Once over the runway and close to landing, simply chop the power and flare just a little by pulling straight back on the stick. Easy.

    @MobyDick oh, the flattery... thank you. I see a lot of stuff we have in common, some similar techniques. I like your style, is clean, plane is smooth, parts count is excellent. Also you pay attention to cockpit/canopy detailing.
    You just need to refine your technique a bit. Like always use disabled collision stuff on control surfaces.
    Now, your question about flaps: Putting wing parts inside custom flaps never works, nose goes down.
    I use 2 techniques:

    • an edited gyro, that activates on Ag1, creates some artificial lift, levels the plane and rises the nose a bit. You can get it from my mobile Eurofighter.
    • main wings (the hidden scaled wing parts) are attached to plane with edited rotators (that go one direction only, when vtol slider is down). You can check (or take the rotators) from my recent upload, the "Uhu"

    @ChiChiWerx Thank you. I am happy you found it easy to land. I put the gyro on it for mobile players to land it easier. I have the game in both my phone and PC, and I think the control for mobile is really tricky.

    disable some collisions on tailplanes, to get rid off that nasty sound.
    Also the main LG wheel base is too small.

    I have to ask: why in the world did you feel the need to put a gyro on it for landing? This has to be one of the easiest landing aircraft I’ve flown in SP...slow down to 200 mph, about 4% thrust and flare to land...dead easy.

    @MobyDick you can disable the part's aircraft colisions with overload

    @skullcandy01 Thank you for the advice. I would balance the center of lift by adding weight to the back of the plane. But when the flaps come down, they act like the elevators on my horizontal stabilizers, making the plane pitches downward.

    @edensk Thank you! That's a brilliant idea. I hope it won't cause any explosion though

    or attach the main wings to a rotator that moves ãround 3 degrees

    @MobyDick you can hide some scaled down wings attached to rotators inside the fuselage in the front to simulate the effect

    @MobyDick The wings are generating extra lift with flaps with wings inside, but it shifts the center of lift so that the plane pitches down. Its sort of like moving the center of lift from the balanced location you have it to some other uncalculated area on the plane. If you keep it level with your tail stabilizers, you will rise in air faster.
