    ATTENTION : the deadline is relaxed DONT WORRY, I am extremely busy with work and family things all of a sudden and the results may take a little longer, for this reason the challenge deadline is extended.

    If you aren't sure how to make a helicopter, this video by @walvis is excellent. https://www.simpleplanes.com/Videos/View/1530354/How-to-aggressively-go-up

    @belugasub I know I said the MH-53 was my last submission but I unintentionally lied. Heres my final submission (Hopefully you'll accept it as the challenge isn't closed yet). :MI-24D

    @belugasub I hope you don't take points off for this, but I discovered 2 parts in the cockpit werent attached and the right side lights weren't green on the MH-53 but i posted a fixed version. Hopefully that redeems it. You can find it on the MH-53s' pinned comments.

    @belugasub My last minute and last submission:MH-53M It's nose heavy so you'll have to trim down to counter it.
