I have to admit I am very impressed with the design, but I find it very frustrating to fly since I'm always fighting with it to maintain flight attitude, is there something I'm missing? Description doesn't help.
@BnanaX 1.9.205 is mine, try to find a way to update your game, you don't have the funky trees features that's why my plane's rotators don't spin
@BnanaX is your app updated to the latest version? It works perfectly for me.
@BnanaX huh? They should!
Gorgeous design, I love it!
@spefyjerbf I really appreciate it, thanks!!
You say you can run this on an average Android device, what kinda nuclear phone you got because my S20+ lags with this build and takes 30 seconds to load the level.
Looks cool as hell, reminds me of that Caprica plane you made.
@TheReturningHound The F-42 from Sauce
I love this
I like it
Hey so I'm not very satisfied with my previous submission, can I reupload an improved one in exchange for deleting the first one?
If you're gonna use a build made by one of the most well known and recognized users in simple planes, at least don't make it look so ugly.
It's also not fair for others who genuinely spent time making original designs for this challenge.
I JUST realized that it's not a 15 part challenge, it's a 10 MINUTE challenge.... Oh well, I like it a lot anyway.
Is landing gear required?
@ThomasRoderick yep, I was stumped because I didn't know AngleOfSlip was even a thing until I asked in a forum, so the first tailess airplane didn't have slip angle compensation but YawRate helped keep it under control, I'm thinking about making a genuine flying wing since those brakes behave exactly like a weathervaning vertical stabilizer now, which would make true tailess flying wings a walk in the part.
Thanks again, I made a successor that can align itself using brakes now https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/m7Ch4I/Raccoon-MK-12
@Flightsonic thanks so much, I didn't know it was referred to as AngleOfSlip, I'll try to implement that.
@TrislandianAlliance it would definitely be very cool
I didn't know just the first two were enough, I edited all four of them to higher numbers, the only thing I don't like about this solution is that the wheels seem to rotate faster than the vehicle actually moves, but I'd take that any day over seizuring wheels
Thanks! She's an old design that was perfect for this experiment, honestly funky trees is the best thing to have happened in SP.
Is p-factor really that drastic from a dead start?
April doesn't have a 31st
Time to restore it into a racer
Oh my God the wing twist, the S ducting, the inlet bump, I love it so much!!
I can't favorite this for some reason, it's a good guide.
Big fan of the design.
@Diloph on the engine
@ThomasRoderick thanks! And my gravatar depicts my floofy dragon character, Centuri.

@AerialFighterSnakes I could try.
@AerialFighterSnakes oh no they didn't make electric engines, I just used their new funky trees input functions to make rotators behave like throttleable motors.
@edensk oh my friggin God LMFAO yes it is!! I hadn't realised this! Way to make a simple equation much simpler!
@nadvgia if I do that the propellers will begin to oscillate back and fourth, resulting in a lack of thrust.
Also the rotators don't free spin when input is let go which is why they stop so suddenly, though I'm sure there's some equation to make them free spin when there's no input.
@KingCobra11 click on the website menu, then forums, then new post, select your preferred category (questions, suggestions, etc.), then click new post again and you're ready to make one of these.
Adorable, love the segmented wings, gives a bit of realism to the wing's flexibility.
@SemedianIndustries https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/D607Ua/Ornithopter-A-2 old Post, uses hydraulics
@Lizardman06 made a successor, it can reach 100+ miles per hour without the jet engine
@Lizardman06 I LOVE IT!!!!
@Lizardman06 I'm glad! You gotta send me the link sometime if you post it.
@edensk I really appreciate your help, thank you!
@Mustang51 I might just do that
Ugh I forgot to reflect the chine fin under the wing
@Lizardman06 a suggestion, for the negative and positive values, make them a 20 and -20 instead of just 1 and -1, it'll help the rotator spin a bit faster at maximum throttle.
