Wiki

The Douglas SBD Dauntless is a World War II American naval scout plane and dive bomber that was manufactured by Douglas Aircraft from 1940 through 1944. The SBD ("Scout Bomber Douglas") was the United States Navy's main carrier-based scout/dive bomber from mid-1940 through mid-1944. The SBD was also flown by the United States Marine Corps, both from land air bases and aircraft carriers. The SBD is best remembered as the bomber that delivered the fatal blows to the Japanese carriers at the Battle of Midway in June 1942. The type earned its nickname "Slow But Deadly" (from its SBD initials) during this period.

    @lesyes123 it’s a warbird so make sure you have plenty of speed and make gentle movements on the stick

    How do you take off in it? I had the stick full forward, but the nose went vertical and then it stalled and flat spun into the ground.

    Tried that, but it ends up flipping vertically. Maybe it’s because I was using low physics...@TheXDimension32 @BogdanX
