B-17

I did it guys, I made this thing be able to takeoff by itself.

Controls:
AG1 - Open bomb bay doors
AG2-AG5 - release bombs
AG6 - Exit the plane(must activate AG1 first)
AG7 - Deploy pistons that push the plane up
Deactivate AG8: turn on the planes autopilot(use this for long flights or when abandoning the plane)

Takeoff procedure(this is different from the previous posts):
1: Line up on runway
2: Set flaps halfway down
3: Throttle up to 100%
4: While rolling down runway, make sure the plane is straight
5: When the plane reaches 160 mph, pull up.
6: Gear up and set flaps to 0

Landing procedure:
1: Line up to runway
2: Set flaps all the way down
3: Put the gear down
4: Set throttle to 30%
5: When over the runway, make sure the speed is lower than 160 mph
6: At around 140 mph, touchdown
7: Slow down

Creators note: the takeoff procedure is for when the plane is fully loaded and the landing procedure is for when you have already dropped your bombs

    @JuanNotAnAlt I can make the planes that collided into one another or I can make the b-17 E variant which may seem hard to do but no it won’t be for me because I live an hour away from the last b-17 E variant available to the public which is the “My Gal Sal”
