Amphiplane 1000 (update)

Auto Credit Based on Hyattorama's Amphiplane 1000 redo

It’s still not perfect but thanks to @Chancey21 and @XjayIndustrys I was able to make some important changes;

Redesigned tail

Custom retractable landing gear (my first time)

Different inlet/paint/lights

Modified flight characteristics and weight distribution.

Something else I’m forgetting... oh well

The Amphiplane is meant to feel as comfortable in the water as it is in the air. Just fold the wings back, throttle up and go! It floats and turns without the aid of a gyro (unless you want it). It doesn’t turn all that fast... but still. Also, it doesn’t like taking off from the water all that much, so make sure you raise the landing gear and use full flaps and pull back on the stick a lot to get airborne. [water takeoff has been improved]. Taking off from land is a breeze. This thing isn’t especially pretty, and I didn’t add full detail, I guess cause I want to see what you guys think... it could probably use some (more) adjustments but I dunno.

Flight controls are standard.
Ag1 to unfold main wings
Ag2 gyro for the water if you want it
Ag8 lights
VTOL for flaps

Credit to @Planedude for the awesome artificial horizon

I think that’s all... Hopefully it’s better than the first version! :) happy flying

    Haha yes it’s definitely modeled after the A5. If I were a better builder I would have just built a replica haha. Anyway, thank you ;) @Smach3

    @Chancey21 I guess if you have a chance, maybe you could help me get this plane to the right scale? I just can’t seem to get it right :(

    Yeah this plane does look pretty plain... I dunno why but I am just completely overwhelmed at the thought of doing livery stuff. Which is why, as you can see, none of my builds have liveries hahaha. Except the Cessnot, which has one small black stripe hahaha. Barely even counts. @XjayIndustrys

    Yay my feet don’t have a wheel crushing them anymore lol wth I’m so random
    better
    Not as much trim issues as before I think
    IDK
    Yay no more tail wheel slowing down my swimming
    That’s good
    I sometimes wonder if I’m split personality
    No don’t worry ur not
    That’s exactly what you would say
    No it isn’t
    Back to SimpleLanes3
    You should slap some decals on
    Stripes, rego, a white and red stripe paint job
    It’s cool we’ll done this is a major improvement
    Now. I’m going to make it a seagull with upside down wings |-)
