Realizing I had a distinct lack of stealth fighters I tried to create one and ended up creating this! Miniature, mediocre dogfighter! Almost stealthy... Very light and well armed for a quick dogfight, enjoy!

    @Verdnan I thought about using two seperate wings so that the reversed trim glitch wasn't going on and sometimes doing that to fix the pitch mechanics actually makes pitching extremely effective. Might be worth a try, I was just getting really far off my intended build so wrapped it up haha

    Very nice design! It has a lot of character, it's a shame it's not more maneuverable. I think if you change the wings up a little keeping the same look, this bug could really move.

    @AaltonenIndustries Delta wings bro hahaha I usually like to have canards but my center of mass was sooo far back I ran out of options and had to improvise. Turned out alright aside from the reversed pitch dynamics. Always bugs me to see the flaps moving the wrong direction lol

    Very cool design! So I guess good looking fighters don't need foreplanes or horizontal tailplanes, so I'll just stick to my current design and add the built-in missile pods.

    This is cool dude the colour is good the cockpit a little tall but overall a great build it flys like a dream and sort of makes me jealous of how it handles so well

    The only thing I did change was how tall the cockpit was it looked cool but the cockpit looked to tall still great build and I would love to see what you come out with next @Sarpanitu
