    @24jclawson Does work excellent! You need to run it at high physics.

    @BaconAircraft and also I do have professional H.O.T.A.S. system for my PC so WASD troubles aren't my problem. It's just construction problems. Also I would like to apologize for my bad English, since I am from Russia.

    @BaconAircraft I am a heli pilot too and I know how they behave. That's why I'm really confused by it's behavior in my RAH-96 Night Whisper.

    @RedVine I personally don't think they behave like excrement, but rather it is hard to control them using WASD instead of an actual control column. My friend's uncle in china is a former helicopter pilot for the PLAAF and he explained to me that helicopters really do behave oddly in comparison to what one thinks it may behave.

    @BaconAircraft you made my day! That explains why my swashplates behave like shit, excuse my language.

    @YTneonANcreeper Make sure you're on high physics. It does not explode.

    @YTneonANcreeper @BaconAircraft yes whenever I power 1 it spins and explodes.

    Why is the plate on this swashplates is always going 90 degrees counterclock-wise from the blades pitch?

    This is nice! By the way...do you think there’s a possibility you could upload an unlisted post of the Tu-144 so I could check it out or maybe finish it?

    Thanks, but I won’t be using it. I always like to make and try new things myself before requesting assistance. @xXN1NJAXx

    Make sure you’re on high physics! That makes or breaks the design. @Tencents49
