SPM TBs 50 Subscribers Holiday Special! [OPEN]

Welcome to my 50 subscriber holiday special!!!

As the name implies, I have just reached 50 subscribers on my channel! A huge point for me! And I wanted to celebrate by making a special!

You build something, anything, (with some rules in place). And I make a video essentially showing it off. I know it isn’t quite the...super huge giveaway for specials or a live play through with subscribers, but I am a little short on the money side of things and can’t get a proper setup quite yet for that kind of stuff. So I will make do with this!
This video will be on both the SimplePlanes website and on YouTube as well!
In both places the video is, I will give the names, links, and my thoughts on how it looks, performs, and any upgrades it could use.
This is sort of like a challenge, I will choose 5 (five) different builds that are my favorites. You can make maximum 2 posts, yet only 1 will be chosen if you do.
There is no rewards regarding upvotes, the reward is you get a video on your build. This video will probably be around 25 minutes, with about 5 minutes each on each build.


Deadline for your build is January 10th of 2021

Build Rules:
I would like it to be a successor, if it isn’t, provide the link or notify me.
Can be air, land or sea.
No mods, I’m still stuck on iOS unfortunately.
Maximum 2,000 parts, minimum 800.
There is no theme, go crazy!
The more detail added to the build, thumbnail, and description, the more likely you will get picked.
No forfeiting, once in your name is set, you can choose to either build or not, if you don’t post by the deadline, you are considered forfeited, and will not be accounted for when choosing time arrives.

Description Rules:
Must have all controls listed correctly. If this is not the case, your chances of getting picked drop to zero.
No need for a story, or a long description, I just need to know controls.
Controls include:
Controls for driving.
Controls for weapons/extra features (ex. Opening doors).
All activation groups listed (if unused, you can list as: none).
VTOL and Trim listed for uses, if unused, use same format as AGs
For planes, if you need certain speeds to land/take off, list that as well.
List any and all problems that can cause a crash/damage.

Entering The Special
You must have at least 30 points (2 upvotes total).
You must have an appropriate name. I will not be pronouncing them so I am immune to names that sound bad when you say them. But they still need to not have any curse words, R rated words, or other stuff. If you have a name like this, and want to join. Consider making an alternate account.
You must ask to join in the comments, I also consider people who upvote as joining unless you specifically say otherwise.
Questions can be asked and are encouraged.

Basic Q&A:
Q: Is XML allowed?
A: Yes, it is encouraged.

Q: Can it be holiday themed?
A: It can be any theme, go crazy.

Q: How much detail is needed?
A: Anything is fine, the more, the better. Builds with extremely detailed interiors and exteriors will probably do best, but there is no limits on detail.

Q: Is water wet?
A: Not quite sure if this is has any relevance, but I’ll answer. Water is not wet, water makes things wet when it touches it, water touching water does not count, because mud touching mud doesn’t make it muddy, therefore, water is not wet.

I do know that 50 subscribers is not a lot, with many Youtubers having thousands, even millions of subscribers, 50 looks pretty miniscule. But I have tried so hard to give people what they want, tutorials, comparison videos, and more! And it has grown my channel from a sloppy, basic, 6 subscriber channel that nobody would even care about, to being one of upper-middle SimplePlanes You-tubers, getting into the popular videos, and doing pretty good! And I wanted to expand a little by being more in touch with the SimplePlanes community! And I know having a chance to get 5:00 of time in a video by a small-ish YouTuber is not quite the best prize, but I can average about 20 views on a video, 40 on a good day. So if say, 50% of all viewers looked at the link, that an extra 10-20 upvotes on your build. A pretty sweet deal if you ask me. I don’t have a PC, I don’t have a Patreon, and I’m pretty much broke, so I can’t do a huge, giveaway that makes people file in like ants, I can’t, and don’t want to do that. I have tried my very hardest, and I leave it to the community to decide what will happen to this special. If this doesn’t work, I likely won’t do this again, but if it is successful, I can do 100, 150, 200 subscriber specials, and more! So, consider joining!
And have a happy holidays, regardless if you join or not!

Thank You’s:
Thank you to all my subscribers who made this possible!

    This is already starting to look like a disaster...maybe all this work was for nothing...

    @NotSoNormalPioneer I found a niche in the SP community, there are very few You-tubers compared to say, War Thunder. So with very few options, people came to me!
    Music is a little bit different, with so many artists, it’s quite hard to find a way to get anyone when there’s so many different people. You could find 500 You-tubers that JUST make rock music, and none of them grow to a channel that can sustain itself without exhausting the YouTuber. While there are like, 15 different SP you-tubers that people go to, the idea is to find something you like that’s not very popular in the community, and exploit that. I actually tried to make an alternate channel that makes videos on WoTB, but with so many different channels, the channel lasted around a week until I shut it down. This isn’t something to say change your channel, or you might already know this. But it’s just a state of the fact.
