Because of everyone who upvoted and spotlighted this plane, it became my first one to reach the 1st page. Thanks to all of you!
XF-53 is an experimental aircraft made to test propellers with thrust vectoring control to improve pitch maneuverability. A contra-rotating propeller layout was chosen to eliminate the effects of prop wash on the roll and yaw axis while the propeller is angled. The philosophy of the aircraft is to angle itself properly and take a shot from its two devastating 150mm cannons, once and for all. Carries 100 rounds total, which is more than enough to shoot down 100 enemy aircraft in one mission.
- VTOL for propeller blade pitch
- Pitch also controls propeller angle
- Standard pitch, roll, throttle, yaw

Hope you enjoy flying this plane!

This is a really cool concept! I like it a lot.
@DumbPlaneMaker yah I really like that mechanic, makes the plane much more dynamic to fly.
Another borzoi enjoyer I see
Thats a interesing idea, a lot of time ago i considered to make one prototype of a engine like this, but it didn't convinced me
@32 Increase propeller pitch when it overspeeds
engine destroyed from overspeeding
@Carbon2128 That's the catch of manually controlling the prop pitch, you have to set a value that both gives adequate acceleration and doesn't overspeed
Bro made a supersonic prop fighter.
WAIT. WHAT THE F###
op for my p-51 mustang psm
Is there a way to get rid of the over speed thing?
@AnomalyYeet Thanks, didn't know that

Very smooth controls
