Enhanced version of my previous Q400... Special thanks to BogdanX and EternalDarkness for giving me tips!

  • Enhanced Aerodynamics
  • Less drag
  • Adjusted rear landing gear
  • More realistic speed
  • Adjusted airfoil
  • Added lights

VTOL Down : Flaps 
Brake : Spoilers 
AG8 : Lights

Land at around 150mph with 40% power at full flaps.
Stalls at 130mph due to the skinny wings of the Q400.

    @EternalDarkness Thank you so much for your tips! I have learned a lot especially with the Overload Mod. I won't be making another version of this plane as i also don't want my account to be full of Q400s XD.. I will learn more with my future planes and I really appreciate the help :)

    It is certainly an improvement over the previous version. There are still a few more things that can be done. Deflection of ailerons is quite extreme and there's too much pitch authority for this kind of plane. Also, flaps go in both directions. To make flaps only go down, set input of rotators to "0,1" instead of "-1,1" by using Overload. Also, you may want to experiment with this technique for smoother wings. I advise applying these tricks to the next build, as I think two versions of this one are quite enough.
