I won't crowd the descriptions with wiki because everybody knows damn well how to use wiki (if you don't, are you living behind the rock all this time?).

    for some reason trying to load it causes my game to crash, and i have a nice PC 1660 SUPER i5=10400F

    "Simulated simple Fly-By-Wire control system"
    Yeah...
    In my book, PID is not as simple as it seem, nice job tuning that PID.
    For me I use more basic form of FT for so long until I have enough brain power to tackle PID lol.

    @BangRou the autoroll is most noticeable at lower speeds, up to around 300 knots or so, though it’s still present above that speed. If you simply level the wings and let the stick go (zero aileron input), it rolls slowly to the right. You can really see it if you level the wings at slower speeds, then pull straight back…it definitely rolls right when it should pull straight. I don’t know if it’s due to the pod being right of centerline and making your build slightly right side heavy, having uneven drag or having a wonky mirrored connection, it could be any of those things. It’s slight, though and I’m sure it’s not a bother to most, though I definitely tend to notice those things.

    @ChiChiWerx I do have a little experiment with target tracking ft for turret auto tracking and then came up with an idea to implement those ft to the targeting pod.
    and also what kind of auto-roll do you mean?

    I also have to say the JDAMs and pod tracking are excellent. Not sure if that’s totally your creation or if someone has figured this out before, but that one feature makes this worth the price of admission alone.

    I could easily say that this creation is better than every single jet i've ever built, Clean job, Homie.

    Way better than I expected. The acceleration on takeoff is a bit high and the energy loss is a bit low, but nothing is ridiculously unrealistic. Roll rate, turn rate and S.L. speeds are in the ballpark, the build itself looks pretty good (would have done the root trailing edges differently, but it looks like a Viper). My biggest comments are that I would also suggest you to use the symmetric airfoil instead of the Cessna wing, which would help your performance numbers greatly. Also, it has a little auto-roll, yuck!; but for all that, this is a very good build, especially given your 560 points.

    You can trust me, this is not a RickRoll(REALLY.).
