    Hey, I know I asked before but may I use this screen in my own build? It will be used on a helicopter and maybe a 737 colab build

    Oh ok word. Well, is there any chance you’d temporarily post it/them/one as unlisted? I’m curious to see what you’ve come up with :) @Chancey21

    Edit: oops never mind you already answered hahaha.

    One more question; now that we’ve got v.1.8, are you going to try your hand at building any rotorcraft?

    Cool! Where are those engines exactly? I can’t seem to find them... I’ve been tinkering with the plane (undoubtedly just making it fly worse lol oh well whatevs). Also, do you have an easy install version of that Garmin? Or presumably BaconAircraft does... @Chancey21

    Basically, wings create lift when air flows over them. Usually, that is when they move through the air, but the air that the prop "throws" onto them creates more lift and therefore a more responsive wing. The way I added a simulation of this effect is that I added jet engines inside the control surfaces set to throttle and reverse thrust engines too. @Hyattorama

    Say, can you explain to me a little bit about the prop wash effect; what causes it and what are the symptoms? I looked it up online and the explanation I found didn’t make sense to me when applied to a pusher-prop setup, like in this case.... :/

    Oh and also, if you’d be willing to explain a bit about how you built this plane and what you did to achieve prop wash, I would be so so grateful! :)

    I think this is maybe my favorite plane that you’ve built.

    It's obvious on the side view. Between the bottom edge of the door and the fuselage. A bit of nitpicking on my behalf there, but there's no such thing as a perfect build.

    What gap between the doors and the fuselage were you talking about? @EternalDarkness
