"Boss, I think the Research department just got possessed by the ghosts of Jack Northrop and the Horten brothers, and they're mad."

Another paper project from Socrux's Experimental Research Department that thankfully never saw the light of day, the Uranus was a large flying wing concieved as a high-endurance naval patrol aircraft able to pull double duty as a transport craft. Equipped with enormous synthetic aperture arrays and a ridiculous quantity of missiles, it was to be able to find and attack any seaborne threat, with self-defense provided by air-to-air missiles mounted in vertical launch tubes. The project called for partial watertightness in key compartments to keep the craft afloat for extended periods of time in case of a forced landing. It was most rightfully dismissed as a ridiculous concept, and never built.

    @ErickvCamilo If you want to, you can place it yourself, just make a successor to this plane
    Like I said, my potato laptop is already dying with the amount of parts this has lmao

    Se tu quiser, pode fazer a modificação nesse avião você mesmo, baixa aí e cria um sucessor
    A batata do meu notebook já quase se mata com as 570 partes desse aqui, se aumentar colocando mais coisa isso aqui vai fritar lol

    @lastv801 It was never meant to be a replica, I'm happy with the amount of engines it has. Besides, I guess most of the thrust is coming from these four turbofans above the fuselage anyways, lel

    @FlyingHueman oh, i almost forgot if you made a custom air to air missles that look like drones, but with guns they could act like their from ace combat 7, and add a extra engine on each side. It could rule the sky.

    @FlyingHueman that’s really odd. When I turn the pitch control surface’s trim to “on” (not inverted), it works just as it should. Sometimes planes work slightly differently for different devices though so this could be the reason

    @Mustang51 That never seems to work for me, could never figure out how it works. I always select the option to have them include trim, but it never seems to do anything.

    @FlyingHueman why not add the trim to the pitch control surfaces?

    @CaptainEssen You might notice a fair amount of my stuff is inspired by Ace Combat, lel. I've got a Not-A-Lindwurm in the works right now.

    @Mustang51 I thought about trim tabs but they took some control surface real estate... Since I'm lazy I usually just leave flaps to be used as trim, but yeah, in this bird the flaps are too big and too sensitive. In hindsight, I probably should've taken some of that area for trim.

    Man, I like this simply because it reminds me of the Arsenal Bird from Ace Combat 7.

    @FlyingHueman yeah it’s not an easy type of plane to build. You did a great job of it though! Some trim tabs would help fly a little easier but that’s not too big a deal. I like the curving of the wing that you did though. You don’t see that on flying wings too often
