Whale Shark

Auto Credit Based on BoxGlow's Simple Whale Shark [Mobile Friendly]

I went swimming with these magnificent creatures and got inspired by its beauty.
+ Throttle - to start swimming
+ VTOL Up - to submerge
+ Roll - to swim right / left
+ For best experience, please use Medium or High Water Physics
==================================================
Swims at an incredible 7MPH top speed!! 2 times faster than the average whale shark.
A mobile friendly version can be found in the Predecessor
Everything in this design is slow so please be patient.
=================================================
Wiki: The whale shark (Rhincodon typus) is a slow-moving filter feeding shark and the largest known extant fish species. The largest confirmed individual had a length of 12.65 m (41.5 ft) and a weight of about 21.5 t (47,000 lb). Unconfirmed claims of considerably larger individuals, over 14 m (46 ft) long and weighing at least 30 t (66,000 lb), are not uncommon. It holds many records for sheer size in the animal kingdom, most notably being by far the largest living nonmammalian vertebrate. It is the sole member of the genus Rhincodon and the family, Rhincodontidae (called Rhiniodon and Rhinodontidae before 1984), which belongs to the subclass Elasmobranchii in the class Chondrichthyes. The species originated about 60 million years ago.

The whale shark is found in open waters of the tropical oceans and is rarely found in water below 22 °C (72 °F). Modeling suggests a lifespan of about 70 years, but measurements have proven difficult. They have very large mouths and are filter feeders, which is a feeding mode that occurs in only two other sharks, the megamouth shark and the basking shark. They feed almost exclusively on plankton and, therefore, are completely harmless to humans.

    Now this may sound terrible but I put the location of the whale on a finale approach and was satisfied watching it plummet to its death

    @nfsplatinum have you tried This one? it only has 207 parts.
    .
    @Meltingvenus1999 probably. I remember someone said they are playing SP with a knockoff BT keyboard so they could nudge parts.
    .
    @AeroEngineering Hmm.. I never thought of that... I still have many projects in mind so I dont think I could get around in making a ray.

    @BoxGlow I was at an aqarium, and have you considered a stingray orthinopter? (even if the wings tips moving is for looks)
