Robotech VF-1 (Fighter-Guardian)

5,868 KillaDanDaMan  3.9 years ago

Inspired from the 1985 show "Robotech". This is a work in progress any advice on how to improve the design would be awesome.
VTOL down transforms.
Throttle at less than equal to 45% is usually good transforming speed
Trim adjusts wings.
7 activates 2 gyros; for when you transform.
8 activates/deactivates 1 gyro.

My end goal is to have 1 design that can change into all 3 forms
