Often companies choose to blend their brand name with an marketplace picture. The other day I saw in a known wrist watch shop, a racing plane design. It was a sleek agile little prop plane, with wings slowly fusing in to the fuselage and an inverted rudder. I thought that I will be an interesting transfer to the game, especially with my slow racing planes that could not take over the A.I in all events.
The biggest challenge was to create a sleek surface with curves -always a difficult subject with blocks, so I tried to make them with fewer parts as possible and cones. Because almost all my platforms are very slow, I left exposed the tip from the wing surfaces on flaps and ailerons. If you having lag issues at high speeds you can regulate the roll rate by adjusting the length of the internal wing. By poetic license I name it after one of the two immortal horses of Achilles, Balius (?a????). Balius was child of West Wind Zephyros and it was gift from Poseidon to Achilles father.
This plane it’s all about performance. Speed and stability was priority, but it’s also very economical. In “Going the distance” challenge covered 19.377 ft . Also you can land it almost every ware and take off from any flat surface, so you can visit all the beaches in the map.
AG1 is for landing lights, VTOL for Flaps. Have fun.

    @AerialFighterSnakes Hope you like it. Like most of the racers has small cockpit , maybe in my case smaller than the original . The prop has a 50 degree fix rotation for lower drag. The initial design was based in Rols Royce Merlin engine, witch has an output of 1000hp , Balius with the same amount of power was not fast enough to beat the A.I in the races, but tried to keep it realistic as possible.

    I though this was a drone at first, until I saw the tiny cockpit. Lol. And I though this thing had counter rotating propellers.

    @USSR Thank you for the spotlight. Sometimes I am running simple planes from a ancient computer and I am having trouble if any design exceed 200 parts . So my builds are in most cases simple. This is why I appricied your planes . Congrats and keep building !
