Thank you for clicking on my plane! I am in a slow process of returning to SP, and I have decided to improve and re-release my most successful creation yet. I have added flaps, which were the most requested feature! I also made many minor changes to make it more realistic, those include details on the wings, tail shape, nose shape, more realistic weight.

Tell me in the comments if I should still be improving on it or if I should finally let the A380 rest in peace. I personally like the A380, and am very happy with how the plane is improving. It is basically the first good plane I made. The first iteration of this plane got me to a thousand points. At the time I was slowly losing interest in SP, but the success of the plane made me stick for much longer. I want to thank @Minecraftpoweer for helping me with the flaps, @Franticmatty for introducing more people to my planes, and everyone who has upvoted, spotlighted, or followed.

The part count is still rising, but I am still very confident that it will run on most phones, I tried to make it as mobile-friendly as possible.

Following are some frequently asked questions that no one has asked and after that some screenshots.

• FAQTNOHA:

Q: How 2 take off plz?

A: Spawn at an airport of your choice, SLOWLY pull VTOL down (really SLOWLY, believe me). Then throttle to 100%, trim all the way down, and wait. The plane will pick up speed, then just pitch up and you're good to go.

Q: But Derek, you handsome man, why is the plane so hard to turn?

A: What did you expect wtf it's an A380 not a freaking F-16. If you want to turn mid-air, I suggest you setting trim down and roll slightly. The plane will then continue to turn. Be very careful with yaw tho

Q: Why is it running out of fuel so fast?

A: It's not. But if you think that it is, then you can add fuel to two additional fuselages, according to this image:

Q: Can I make a livery for it?

A: Yes, of course. I made it use as few colors as possible, so there are still many unused color slots:

Q: Can I edit it and make a successor?

A: Yes, any edits or improvements are welcome. If you can improve the cockpit, landing gear, or the flaps, I will be happy to use your version as a base for the next update.

    I’m still working on a BIG update. I made a thicker elevator and yaw, I upgraded the landing gear, couldn’t do anything to the flaps, I also made a reverse thrust system wich was really easy to make, I made a new cockpit and some minor changes. I should release it very soon..

    @Strikefighter04 It's great that those three colors are so generic that many people can imagine their own flag under it!

    @Dllama4 It started as a czech flag, then french, but then I failed horribly and it somehow turned into russian, so yeah
