    I think you don't know about 36/18 in Wright airport, 36 is means 360 degree and 18 means is 180 degrees.

    @Spillo Sweet! From my current testing it seems to work pretty well, although I couldn't get the autopilot to work, but that's okay since there isn't any room on the panel anyway lol

    Hey question, how many parts can you run? I need you to test my plane that I've integrated the radio stack and VOR things into. It has about 1600 parts. Reckon you could just check all the systems function for me?

    Jeez... This is SimplePlanes bro, I think you misunderstood it for Microsoft Flight Sim. This is the most detailed and functional aircraft I've ever seen in this game! Very cool!

    Done. I have updated the xml.
    (I set the controls to Disabled instead of 0 and I have
    leveled the cameras).

    @Spillo Do you have access to the "Update XML" button in the post dropdown? If not, I can update the craft file for you.

    @SsKyCoSs @Krikkit42 below should answer your question about the lag

    Very nice plane, a few notes for the VR users though:

    • Would be nice to have a first person camera that is levelled - currently feels like the whole world is tilted down because the camera is
    • Lots of decorative controls set to "0" - this isn't a valid control input and causes error spam, setting them to Disabled is the recommanded practice.

    Unfortunately the code doesn't seem to handle the 0 Control very gracefully and actually logging so many errors every frame is causing a significant amount of lag, so you might get a decent performance boost from setting your controls to Disabled instead of 0.
