    It is because the plane above has scaled down wings then @Chancey21

    No planes are like that in real life, GA planes don't have fly-by-wire, your estimate is incorrect. The plane stalls at 45 mph @randomusername

    Yes, being able to hold the nose up without pitching @Chancey21

    So assuming the CoM and CoL are in the exact same spot @randomusername

    The stall I am talking about is when the plane falls out of the sky. @Chancey21
    That is, falling vertically while the nose is still up.

    what about CoM placement relative to the wings, that is one of the biggest factors for stalls? @randomusername

    @Chancey21 By experimenting. Any scaled down wings cause the effectiveness of the wing to drop significantly. For example, if you had a wing that could carry 10000 gallons of fuel, using the scale 0,0,0 will cause the wing to be ineffective and cause strange behaviors.
    .
    At the scale, "1,1,1" the wing loading times 3.17 will equal the minimum flight speed with symmetric wings. Flatbottom wings are similar, the only difference is that they just don't give up their speed as easily.

    There are many other factors that go into stall speed, where did you see that equation? @randomusername

    Great, except there is a flap asymmetry issue - when raising flaps, one side will remain slightly lowered/not return to the 0 position, resulting in in a rolling bias. Otherwise nice job!

    @Chancey21 It has 2-3 degrees of dihedral C:

    This would be way better with dihedral

    All I’m saying is that people respect you and your opinion more when it seems like you know what you’re talking about @randomusername

    I have. It's my choice to not upload them publicly. @Chancey21
    I tag a few people to my newest unlisted builds every now and then.
    Right now I have four good crafts awaiting to be uploaded.
    But of course, I want to make a good combine first. So in about 27 hours from now, I will upload all five builds... Just ask to be tagged.

    Why don’t you use all that “smarty pants knowledge” to create a decent plane of your own instead of just criticizing everyone? @randomusername

    Hey just FYI in 1.8 beta the prop shrinks (although the once at full power the spinning-effect shows it at the proper size).

    It also barely moves at 2 mph.
