    @Winwise The word "civil" may not be correct. However, Blue Thunder is not a military helicopter. I recommend watching this movie.

    @Abhishek700 s=0 means matte color, s=1 means gloss color. I recommend Colour Editor mod. You can edit color codes easily with this mod. But I don't know this mod works on your device. Good luck!

    @GeneralOliverVonBismarck You are very understanding! Actually, I don't like gyroscopes. That is just a trick, not physics. And you know this blue thunder can fly upside down!

    This is amazing, awesome details. My first upload was Airwolf, I got a couple versions, mobile friendly. They are no way as detailed like this. Blue thunder is my second favorite helicopter, I think this is the best blue thunder I have seen on SP.

    @Brothen127 That is a target for fireing. Use Head Tracked Weapon System (AG1) and enjoy!
