TBF-1C "X2"

Aight I'm posting this again as I have been requested to do so. However I have made a few changes. Now its got the paint scheme of George H.W. Bush's usual ride. This is NOT the aircraft he was shot down in. So besides the new paint scheme I have added the landing hook and changed the controls for the turrets to pitch and roll. This version retains the 4x 250lbs bomb in the bomb bay.

Controls:

Ag-1: Open bomb bay/arm bombs.
Ag-2: Activate Turrets.
Ag-3: Combat Flaps. Combine with takeoff flaps (LandingGear).
Ag-4: Landing hook.
Ag-5: Fold Wings.
Ag-7: Activate gyroscope (used when you want to use turrets).
Ag-8: Deactivate control surfaces.
To Operate the turrets, Deactivate Ag8 then activate Ag7, followed by Ag2. Use PITCH and ROLL to aim.

Correct me if wrong but I think this is the first TBF on the website to use the new arresting hook

    While it looks really good, I think the flight characteristics could use some work? the pitch feels over sensitive and the roll seems a tad bit under responsive. But I think that's about it
