    @BurkeEnterprise I see. It doesn't fly for me either. I'll try to fix it on my pc later. It used to take off at 25mph.

    @Gestour thanks. It only went fourty, and when I put it in the air it immediately pitched down and stayed.

    @BurkeEnterprise I don't know. Maybe the update broke it. I'll look into it.

    @Noahproblem I think it's great. You can easily fly a couple of feet off the gound, or skim the top of the water. it has it's drawbacks though, like the 5 minute round trip to the bridge, lol.

    @Gestour It is pretty fun to fly that slow of a plane. It's more like floating than flying.

    @Noahproblem Yeah, and that's a bit overpowered. The real one flew at 40mph.
