117k DestinyAviation  2.5 years ago

Notes:
-Great cockpit view
-Pitching up really hard will make it do "evasive" rolls (controlled)

Controls:
-Action group 1: Drop bomb

History: In August of 1943, Nazi Germany had decided to begin investing in experimental aircraft and helicopters. As a result, the Focke-Wulf company created the FW-230, which eventually had three prototypes (two flying and one for various tests). On March 3, 1944, the A-1 took off, performing the first flight of the FW-230. It flew for three hours before landing back at base. The next day, the A-1 took off again, but was intercepted by a pair of British Spitfires and was subsequently shot down. The program was canceled shortly after with the two remaining prototypes being scrapped.

    The flying Volkswagen Beetle, except this one looks weirder and has a propeller that shouldn't be spinning.
