    Aw man that detail and stability, I’d like to learn how to build gears that work like that also to incorporate more detail at a more realistic smaller size along with keeping the plane stable at flight and not needing to pump it up with deadweight. I’d appreciate the help from you and any highly skilled user :)

    When I was building my frogfoot, I googled a bunch of reference pictures. Halfway through my build I realised one of the pictures was from simpleplanes.. It was this plane! I thought it was a 3D model maybe ported from a game for a good hour or so.

    @PhantomHawke the only effective way to learn is to keep building. And the main goal is that the last plane to be better than the previous one.
    Also when you see a plane that you enjoy, download it and "dissect" it. See how different stuff was built. Some methods you can assimilate, if you like them.
    Since your platform is weak (potato), my build are mobile friendly. Complex builds have no more than 300 parts, but i have others around 20. You can check those.
    Also, when you post something, ask people for feedback. You will get tips

    @CRJ900Pilot i don't need the help, you do! Ask for opinions, it seems you want to do a new flaps system. So you need as many input as you can get

    not just for the speed i need it to lift off at that speed. It lifts off at 290 but i want a much lower stall speed @BogdanX

    @CRJ900Pilot add some hidden airbrakes (scaled and/or nudged inside fuselage)

    Can you change the amount of lift vtol flaps do? Im working on a bomber that has vtol flaps and they only reduce speed till takeoff by 40 mph. I need them to reduce the takeoff speed by like 150 mph @BogdanX
