    Simple but accurate simulation of the real aircraft, the flight effect is very good.

    @ReinMcDeer mind if i use this plane for a basis of the Corsair? Im thinking on rebuilding the Cockpit and Wings (Custom Surface).

    @JustLookingForFriends imo the F8F probably would've been the best propeller fighter of WW2 if they got it out in time

    @ThatKindaWeeb It depends on the blueprints you have, since the resolution changes the image size in game. What I usually do is find a blueprint, load it in, and compare to a fuselage block that is the length (Or wingspan) of the actual plane and scale the blueprints accordingly.

    @ReinMcDeer another thing, what did you scale this plane in when you made it
    (Ex 14.00 15.00 ?)

    @ThatKindaWeeb It slows the plane down when it climbs or turns. Sometimes it's not needed on very low power propeller aircraft, but for jets and faster propeller aircraft, it helps make a more realistic climb rate and energy retention.

    @ReinMcDeer I will study this aircraft and attempt to make aircraft using its flight model

    What does the XML edited air brake in the fuselage do?

    @UnspankleSP Great for CAS too. 1000 lb bombs are basically free kills :)
    And you can pen the top of most German tanks at its tier
