    Skua. My dad is going to be getting a new job witch means we won't be able to keep this iPad. I have another iPad at my moms. I'll buy it on that iPad and create another account.

    @Csisguy it was the Scintilla, which everyone watching the stream promptly renamed the Chinchilla hahaha

    @Csisguy you should be able to see all the results here. I had the third fastest time, but I crashed out in the fourth round :( it was good fun, though

    @Csisguy ahh okay, fair enough. They've got something like 150 entries, so I imagine it will take a while! I believe the devs are planning on uploading it to YouTube afterwards, though, so you can watch it whenever you get a better connection. I'll let you know the outcome too.

    Not sure if I'm going to or not. Since my wifi is down I have to use cellular data. And that's basically robbing money from me. I'll be in touch though. If you could tell me who wins thats really all I need to know.

    @Csisguy aww, thanks. I do my best to be a positive influence around here, and I enjoy the problem-solving that comes with helping fix planes. I guess that sorta makes up for how few planes I actually finish building myself hahaha. Will you be watching the livestreamed tournament tomorrow?

    You know what I like about you skua, everything. when someone offers you a idea or a suggestion you consider it whether its big or small bad or good stupid or smart you still put it into consideration. When some one uploads a bad plane you tell them a way to make it better. You inspire them you encourage them. When someone complements your plane 90% of the time respond and you say something way nicer then it has to be even though you don't even know the person. This is why your a good person.

    @Csisguy it's alright, there's no point in forcing yourself to do it! I've not built that many planes lately, although I'm very proud of my Triebflugel. I'll talk to Geebers and see if s/he wants to do anything. If nothing comes of it, I'll add the KAI to my list of ideas

    I know it sounds like I'm avoiding work but I'm just awful at building planes. But I do know a guy name @Geebers that might be up for the build. If he's not up for it I'll go around trying to find someone to help. If you don't have the time don't worry on even building the plane. I never said you had to. I've taken a look at your recent planes and I saw that ten piece challenge entry of yours. That is probably one of the better builds that I've seen in a while.

    @Csisguy oh, they're the Korean ones, right? They are pretty cool. I would like to do them, but I'm not sure if I have time. Most of my SimplePlanes time is being taken up by a map mod at the moment! However, if you would like to work together on it, we could do that?

    Skua remember after you made the cfa 44 you said you'll be on the look out for any more suggestions I have. Not really sure your still up from it since you get people requesting planes all the time but I was looking at some foreign stealth fighters and I found planes like the kfx c100 or the kfx c200 or the kfx fxs. Not saying you have to build these. I just thought there interesting planes to look at and base some Ideas off of.

    @Liquidfox if I was allowed mods for this, I would just make the wings structural ones. I'll get you an unlisted version like that, hold on

    @Liquidfox it seems to be acting up a bit for people, I did test it, but apparently not thoroughly enough haha. I'm glad you like it, though

    @TheHappyHellcat what physics setting are you flying on? I got that problem at around 730mph, which is why the prop has been downsized a bit

    Oh ive always called low wing bearing but yeah I get the concept as it needs force to counteract momentum and gravity similar to rockets (I'm also into rocketry)@Skua

    @Halfstrike wing loading is your plane's weight divided by the area of its wings. It tells you how much weight each unit of area of wing has to lift, basically. This is important because when you turn, the g-force on your aircraft increases the amount of force the wings have to support. If your wing loading is already high, and you do a high-G turn, your wings can't support it and you won't turn much.

    Basically big wings + low weight makes turning easier.
