    @BaconEggs Aha! Good luck on the Flight Model! Working on Flight Models is both fun and frustrating in SP, I hope all goes well, and may I please be tagged in the future post, whether it be a development post or the final post? (Only if it is something you do). I love your Tomcat!

    @brians1209 the spin characteristics are one of the last remaining items for me to complete on the fm, & its less to do with the location of the cg and moreso the post stall forces produced by the lifting sections and the rotational inertia that keep a spin going. that early stage of the spin is a more unsure one where its possible to easily recover or for recovery to take multiple turns before you regain control, and the spin never got to develop enough to be flat in the video (i did input lateral stick in the direction of the spin which slowed it down, i am not sure what wouldve happened had i not done so but it still need works anyway so it doesnt matter much. thx for the concern lol

    I read your pinned comment that the flight model is still under development, but about the flat spin at the end, it seems that the CoM is not far back enough that the aircraft eventually noses down and recovers the spin (right before it dips into the water).
    .
    I doubt that you are not aware of this (you are a much greater builder than I am), but I just wanted to mention it just in case. I had to struggle with my Draken to make it flat spin too, ended up not really making the flat spin work since I couldn't move the CoM any further behind. (Also includes CoL adjustment but whatever lol)

    Also why does someone also make something I made right after I do, but better. That camera shake from G-forces, I just made that for my tomcat, but now you do and it looks WAY better.

    My grandma many many years ago worked on the PSP for the F-14. She told me the binary code failed often, and they got it working once, so they recorded that and made code to say if it detects it fails it plays the recording. When it was time to show off the PSP working, it had failed, but it played the recording. So when the presentation was over they fixed the problem that they identified. So she and her team saved the F-14 project. She also worked on the Joint Stars AWACS
