F-25 Falcon

Auto Credit Based on Blue0Bull's Stealth Challenge [CLOSED]

This is my entry into Blue0Bull’s stealth challenge.

Wanting to replace their earlier fourth-generation fighters, Wright and Yeager teamed up to build a stealth fighter that could operate from their airbases while at the same time being able to land and take off in a very short distance. Enter the F-25, code the final design that entered production. With its good stealth characteristics, excellent thrust to weight ratio, and the inclusion of 2D thrust vectoring, this plane proved to be a extremely deadly dog fighter.

Controls:
Ag1-Enable thrust vectoring
Ag3&Ag4-Arm missiles

Builder’s Note: because the is my first time incorporating thrust vectoring l, it isn’t very good, I DO NOT recommend attempting post stall maneuvers. Also, this build took me a REALLY long time to make, which is why I haven't posted in a while, I really hope you all enjoy this plane. BTW, the main inspiration for this plane was the F-22 Raptor.

    No problem, I had a lot of fun building this plane and participating in the challenge.

    Performance: The performance is not so great. It accelerates way too quickly for my liking personally. The pitch and roll rate are both a bit too quick on high speeds and way too slow on lower speeds. It was pretty nice to land though. (1.5/15 points)
    .
    Design: The plane looks very boxy. The belly of the plane looks pretty nice. The canopy does not look so nice. I think you would have been better off just using fuselage blocks for the canopy. There is little to no detailing , which is unfortunate. The landing gear is stock, which is also unfortunate. I also notice the lack of custom control surfaces. The stock inside wing just clips through the fuselage one. The weapon bays are simplistic but they work pretty nicely. (2/10 points)
    .
    Build Quality: The panelling is pretty nice, too bad there are little to no details. The exhaust is also a little messy. The landing gear is stock, so pretty simplistic. The bland glass canopy just does not fit the design, I think you should have used normal fuselage blocks. (3/10 points)
    .
    Description: The description is pretty simple. I am glad you added some backstory though. The controls are listed nice and clearly. Too bad there are no fancy fonts and stuff. I also wish you included some images of your plane.(3/7.5 points)
    .
    Personal Impression: The design reminded me of the F-22A winch is pretty awesome. (2/5 points)
    .
    Total points = 11.5/47.5

    Thanks for entering!

    I think the fuselage is what has the most parts as I wasn’t super part efficient with that.

    Thanks, the fuselage was extremely hard for me to do, and took up the vast majority of the build time.

    Really neat. It is not often that I see rhomboidal fuselages on planes.
