I'm very happy to lanuch my new plane!
Thanks to @kaqiusha123's help about FunkyTree ,provided beautiful cover.
And thank @Elizabethovo provide the delicate main landing gear.
I also thank @TYUI3120 for his suggestion about the start program.
The Air China's LOGO is made by@DEC12.
I have been helped by many people. Thank you very much.

Basic introduction

DA118,Twin engine regional airliner,The passenger capacity is about 100 people.It adopts the layout of engine top and canard wing,More powerful performance at low speed.At the same time, it can better adapt to the harsh environment.It in order to replace DA116 and complete with other airliner.

Other instructions

Engine start program

The progress I wrote in the roof of cockpit,and I made a switch to skip the startup process, but it will cause the loss of some experiences, such as the sound of the engine and the light on the cockpit roof

Coordinate guide system

This system was used in DA117,and continue to use in DA118.
It can according a coordinate you input ,then indicate the direction and distance between you and the destination.The use way I wrote in plane instruction.

AUTO TRIM

This system in order to solve the cumbersome problem of manual trim and manual trim at high speed is very difficult to make the plane balance.
It is according to setting climb & descent rate or pitch angle to control the plane's pitch at the corresponding angle.
The use way&note I wrote in plane instruction.

Due to the radical layout, DA118 encountered various difficulties during the test flight. Fortunately, these problems were basically solved?
I personally like to make strange airliners based on certain rationality. I hope you can like it and have a pleasant flight.

Have a nice flight!

    @UltraLight SP's physical properties are really strange, but that's what makes some strange aircraft. It is true that the upper engine will cause maintenance difficulties, but this is also to make use of the boundary effect to supplement the air flow on the upper wing. Thank you for enjoying my plane

    @Deandash yeah, the 4 or 5 degrees you see here is not exactly realistic to real life haha. SP physics makes air behave more like water, very hard to squeeze and shape. Essentially the wing just goes whatever direction it's pointing, which means higher AoAs are really difficult to hit without a super unstable plane like GuyFolk makes. So IRL it would be landing at much higher AoA than here.

    Also landing at low AoA is super dangerous because the speed is way higher than it needs to be. So yeah sorry to poop on your design so much but in all honesty, it's cool and I like it, but it just probably wouldn't be a thing. Also because like engine maintenance and stuff it would be better below the wing.

    @UltraLight Yes, At high angles of attack, the canard wing will block the engine and affect the intake. Therefore, we can limit the angle of attack. For example, when landing, the angle of attack will be basically small or even negative. When I test the stall speed of 89km / h, the angle of attack will be about 4 or 5 degrees. It cannot be avoided during take-off, but will the duck wing cover be stronger or weaker when the speed is faster? I'm not sure. This time I mainly want to try the plane with canard wing layout. The upper engine is to further enhance the lift. Thank you for liking this design

    @Faqa There have a switch can enable you control engine directly

    I just want to fly not trying to a pilot with the engine start

    Lol the front canards' wake would probably create a massive vacuum in front of the jets when at a high angle of attack(takeoff and landing), so one would stall out, you would lose power, causing a huge drop in airspeed. The pilots would be putting in quite a bit of yaw to counter the asymmetrical thrust, meaning they might try to use aileron in the final approach. Unfortunately, this will stall the wing and send them into a spin.

    Welcome to the DA118-208:

    Stall out both engines every time you try to take off or land!

    It looks like a cross between a Beechcraft Starship and a Be-200.
