Auto Credit Based on Noname918181's VTOL Challenge

A very, interesting, VTOL aircraft


History

After gaining fame for their first VTOL aircraft, the ?Machro Aircraft Corperation designed a radical new aircraft, the VTOL 2. A tandem seat design, massive, 63mm cannon in the nose, and 6 hard points under the wings made this aircraft a formidable foe for ground forces. Manuverablity is good enough for an attack aircraft, and has a very good top speed of around 640mph.

flight instructions

TAKEOFF
1. Make sure your mentally prepared, takeoffs can get squirly
2. Set throttle to 90%, and adjust as needed to keep level
3. Go full throttle when high enough off the ground and moving forward at a good speed
4. At around 50mph you'll need to knock the VTOL up so that it'll pitch it down, and let it gain speed
5. Once at around 150mph knock the VTOL full up and keep it level
6. Will take practice to make a very good takeoff, and will need all controls simultaneously to work the best
7. Gear can come up at any of the steps

LANDING
1. Good luck, idk how to land VTOL's at all so good luck (sorry if your in the same boat as i)

Builders Note:this is my entry into the VTOL challenge, a fairly good VTOL aircraft, but definitely not winning material, but i had fun making it and thats all that matters. Its very hard to figure out the best CoM to CoT placement but this is what i made it. I hope you enjoy!


Keep looking to the stars
