BAe Kite

Name: BAe Kite
Type: Personal Concept
Attempt #: 1
Falkenwut Generation Build: 5

Here is my BAe Kite. A short-range light-weight STOVL version of my A-8 Aquan aircraft. Turned out to be very similar to the conceptual P.1216 Harrier 2 model. Non-the-less, hope you guys like it :)

Note: The VTOL functionality is best intended for the empty weight configuration. Ensure that you adjust throttle & VTOL control smoothly, avoiding maximum thrust. Make minimal corrections as you go. Should you decide to change the payload or configuration, I recommend to adjust the weight balanace on the 2 small fuselage sections next to the rear blinking lights.

VTOL - Flaps & VTOL
Action Buttons:
3 - Jettison Aim-9 Missiles
4 - Jettison MK.82 Bombs
5 - Jettison AGM-64 Mavericks
6 - Fold Wings
7 - Toggle VTOL
8 - Toggle Lights

    @Liquidfox01 Yep, I originally wished to give my A-8 Aquan an engine similar to the Harrier 2 concept, but as I started modelling in, it starting resembling the P1216 model specifically..

    @DJ2keroni
    Did 3 of them a while back, has a small similarity to the D Model rather than the F Model

    Don't know if you're reffering to a different model altogether...

    Looks like this PZL attack jet concept. Good job!
