The super bullet revival!

This build is based off of my Super bullet

First off this is not a replica, just an original design. For those of you who love high-speed, you should enjoy this, considering it's cruising speed is roughly 6700 mph. Yet it also has really good low speed control and landing abilities, which is achieved by, reduce thrust mode, flaps, air brakes, etc.

Controls:

  • Activate1= parachute

  • Activate2= stabilization mode
    Note: Use for stability at high speeds.

  • Activate3= carrier landing hook

  • Activate8= taxi mode
    Note: use for taking off, landing, and taxying

  • VTOL= flaps
    Note: Do not use above 500 mph.

  • Trim= trim/ high-speed pitch control

  • Yaw= yaw/ use for high-speed turning

  • Roll & Pitch= low speed control (50-2000/3000 mph.)

  • Throttle= throttle
    Note: used with discretion ;)

Notes:

  • Without taxi mode on the throttle is rather snappy.

  • This plane is designed to be able to go extremely fast but also to be able to have great low-speed control.

  • I was actually able to hit 10 grand on it but I never recorded it. Believe it or not flying closer the ground gives you the most speed.

  • The idea of using Jets as control surfaces was SledDriver’s idea.

Enjoy!

    So at 1,000,000 feet ias is 0 due to lower air density

    But SP can still simulate inertia @Belloaka

    @XP Yes, except for the fact that there's no space in simpleplanes

    But can it fly at the edge of space just like the real Blsckbird?
