Hi!
Me again, with another plane for you guys to enjoy (I hope).
This time, I made a waterplane, which was a bit of a struggle, getting it to land well in the water, but I made it work.
The plane is based off of this RC plane, and I think It worked out pretty well!

Controls:

Normal controls, pitch, roll, you know the drill.
No activation groups, I just kept it simple, as it is inspired by an RC plane.

Specs:

Stall speed: 140 mph
Cruising speed at +/- 5.000 ft: ~430 mph
Max diving speed: 720 mph (!)
Recommended water landing speed: 250 mph
I recommend NOT to try and land faster than the recommended water landing speed, or else you will flip.

Water landing:

When landing in the water I recommend landing at 250 mph like I said. As soon as you land in the water, start pitching up and brake fully. Keep braking until you reach a steady speed of about 40-60 mph.

Water takeoff:

To take off, you have to throttle up fully, and keep pitching up all the way. At about 170 mph you will take off.

It's a fun little plane to just fly around with, and I hope you enjoy it!

btw: don't even try to land it on land. -_-
