Auto Credit Based on Visify's Rotary X116

Back with a new design, 100% automatic (throttle controlled propeller pitch) and very fast. This plane is also AI controllable and able to takeoff and land succesfully. This is one of the finest piston powered planes ive ever made, utilizing a new highly modified rotary engine to turn torque into power, and so this plane is very stable. Enjoy flying.

You wanna go really fast? take off the landing gear, it takes up about 1500 drag points even when retracted. Want to go even faster? tweak the propeller pitch to max at a higher angle, but never more than 87.

Top speed at 0-1000 ft: 245 MPH

    @CDRxavier Check your physics quality, it must be on high.

    It just do not move at all! Not even going on the ground-maybe missing a rear landing gear?

    @CDRxavier You mean you can't get this plane off the ground? Don't pitch down on takeoff, what might seem like preventing a stall only worsens it.

    It looks fun, but since I never get your prop. off the ground, no.

    Yep. I do not experience torque issues, though I never managed to life off the ground for even one feet.
