Author's Notes
- The AIM-54's do not lock on within 3km.
- Roll becomes sensitive and unstable when flaps are down. I usually don't use full flaps for landing/takeoff.
- Sweeping wings back increases top speed and severely decreases turn rate and climb rate. The half-sweep mode is great for conserving energy in turns though.
- Make sure to adjust VTOL when sweeping wings to stay level.
- When taking off, don't pull up until reaching 350 km/h.
- Wings sweep all the way back at 100% throttle and will be at half-sweep when not at full throttle. (Also full-sweep when landing gear is down.)
- I recommend using the Zoom Mod by MOPCKOEDNISHE and 5 FOV for the targeting pod camera in Alt.Config.4.
- The FT used in the LANTIRN targeting pod comes from nafeij's Auto-Stabilized Target-Tracking Camera.
- The targeting pod camera works best on targets that are ahead of the aircraft.
- The part count is a little higher than I would've liked but oh well... :P
- The fuel on this plane is unlimited.
- The ammo on the gun is unlimited.

In-Game Name (For Reference): [RD] F-14D

    @ReinMcDeer OH TRUE
    I forgot about the rear of them being flat, darn aight.

    Honestly, them keeping us in the dark with their update progress has put almost everyone’s building on hold.

    But hey, atleast you’ll have labels to put on your aircraft soon too

    @WolfSpark I actually didn't add those because I wanted to wait for the fuselage cutout feature to make them. I have to update this anyway since the engines have the wrong powerMultiplier too so that'll come when 1.10 is out. :P

    @FridayNightFunker Just like ReinMcdeer or others on this site, keep uploading nice, smooth, realistic, friendly or creative works. For buildings, you can use blueprint or rip off certain part as sub assembly from the other people's work.(provided that you have their permission)
    Also, you can program some funny, interesting or useful funky tree code.If you don't know about the funky tree, you can copy the code that made by others and modify it. Remember, copying is cool but learning is even cooler.

    If you have any other questions, pls ask in any of my posts cuz I think discussing irrelevant things in other people’s posts might disturb them.

    @FridayNightFunker It's pretty simple. Take a few screenshot in game with your device and back to builder page, go to blueprint and choose the photos you want, then screenshot the photo with the game default screenshot button. Finally, upload your plane.
    Bad english, hope you understand. (•́ ‿ ,•̀)

    @UmbrellaCorporation I'm not sure how hard this is to do on mobile but I would find the pylon you want to attach your bomb to and move it outside the aircraft using fine tuner and remove the bomb that's already attached to it.
    Then put your bomb on the pylon and move it back into the plane.
