========================

I guess I need a nose cargo door now?

========================

Ok, this plane is built with several objectives in mind:

1. Below 600 parts.

(Barely made it.)

2. Look good and function well in all circumstances.

(The nose wobbles slightly inflight due to the nose cargo door
(I can't figure out how to solve it) So.. Dramatically failed.)

3. Handles nicely.

(The wobbly nose didn't really affect flight performance at all.
So.. kind of made it? )

4. Nose cargo doors, so it has at least one neat party trick.

(Half-way-successful.)

========================

Weird, absolutely unnecessary and overcomplicated Nose Cargo Door
AG8 to toggle

========================

Controls:

- Normal plane controls
- VTOL: Down for flaps
- Trim: Trim (huh.)
- AG1: Blinky Nav light and Strobe light
- AG8: The Funky nose cargo door.

(Opening nose cargo door inflight is not suggested and your insurance company definitely will not cover any damage of properties.)

Anyway, Thank you for your visit!

    The nose wobbles slightly inflight and during taxi-ing due to the nose cargo door, it is quite significant in the cockpit view, I can't figure out how to solve it.
    It does not affect any flight characteristics as far as I know.

    Disclamer:

    Opening nose cargo door inflight is not suggested and your insurance company definitely will not cover any damage of properties.

    Also thanks to those lovely people who gave suggestions

    Warning: Fonky nose door may cause severe decapitation, spinal snappage, or brain damage if not handled correctly. Take the 14 second class before operating nose door.

    @frame What about adding a magnet to help hold it in place?

    @frame On how the cockpit view wobble, I guess you can attach the camera to the fuselage and not the nose? The interior will wobble but not the camera lol

    @frame Set damperMultiplier (in the JointRotator menu in the hinge) to however high required to stop the wobble

    This is certainly the most unique plane I've seen in a while.

    Looks great! Also this reminds me if you were to saw the stratolaunch in half then made the one fuselage into an actual plane, which may I say, looks great!
    Also I may know of something to fix the nose wobble, maybe if you set the mass scale on the rotors that the nose is connected to, to like more than 1, if you haven’t all ready tried that, if so, disregard

    The situation in my sandbox is always weird. Sometimes you'll get shot down by a bomber with 100 guns upfront

    @frame, maybe you need to try to make the cockpit 0 weight mass, because it's wobbling due to the mass, if in the ground it might still wobble, if it is in the air, it should not wobble. Also 0 the drag.

    Paint job sometimes glitches because 2 tone paint ain’t perfect, but it’s a good build, and I like the techniques.
