The JS-1TJ Revelation is a 18m or open class high-performance glider.
It is produced by the southafrican glider company Jonker Sailplanes.

For the flying part:

This recreation has Flaps, Speedbrakes , steerable rear landing gear and a retractable Jet Engine that makes it capable of self-launching. I know that the real JS-1TJ is not capable of self launching, but I used a strong enough engine because it makes operating in SP a lot more fun.

AG1: Retract and deactivate the engine. (It will make the red light in the cockpit deactivate too.)
AG2: Small Gyro.
Trim: Trim
VTOL: Flaps

For takeoff, I recommend using positive flaps. If you want to, you can use the gyro to simulate the person holding your wings straight when you begin accelerating. Just turn off AG2 as soon as the ailerons take effect.

I know it's not that good, but I like it anyway.
Hope you guys like it too!
