This was primarily an exercise in part saving techniques for multiplayer friendly aircraft.

Twister is a variable geometry fighter with STOL capability. It is supersonic at altitude.

Don’t worry about the landing gear, they deploy when you spawn. To stop excessive buffeting during overspeed, swing the wings forward and cut the power.

VTOL up for wing sweep, VTOL down for flaps. Trim is trim. Group 1 for jettison… Enjoy!

    Yeah, I made a bit of a dog's breakfast of the trim somewhere in the FT code

    It’s entertaining, very simple and reminds me of a Jag. Could use a little more trim, but it’s pretty fun to fly.
