I know, this plane sucks, I get it, oh well :P At least with this build I can push to 7K :D

PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION!!!!!!

Let me get the important stuff out the way:

So takeoff speed is 120 mph. Use rudder when necessary. Landing speed should be 120 to 110 mph.

ACTIVATION GROUPS ARE:

AG1: Bomb Bay doors

AG2: Drop one SC500

AG3: Drop another SC500

PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF PETE USE THE ACTIVATION GROUPS TO DROP YOUR BOMBS!!!!!!!!!

This is my entry for the Luftwaffe Challenge!

Here is the source from Wikipedia: The Messerschmitt Me 410 Hornisse (Hornet) was a German heavy fighter and Schnellbomber used by the Luftwaffe during World War II. Though an incremental improvement of the Me 210, it had a new wing plan, longer fuselage and engines of greater power. The changes were significant enough for the aircraft to be renamed the Me 410. The basic A-series aircraft were armed with two 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 17 machine guns and two 20 mm MG 151/20 cannons in the nose and delivered as the Me 410 A-1 light bomber.

ENJOY!!!!

    @Trijets make one bomb in there under the activation group "error" and connect that bomb to the bomb body and the main one to the detacher.

    @ChisP I did that because each SC500 contains two Boom 50s, so I didn't want people accidentally dropping 4 small bombs instead of 2 big bois

    @vcharng The Me-410 A-1 series was a series of light bombers. Yes, the light bomber variants DID indeed have bomb bays. You are most likely thinking about the Me 410 night fighters and bomber hunter variants.

    @ChiChiWerx oh, I didn't realize the trim was reversed, thanks for pointing that out lol

    Nice build but for a single thing: Why is the trim reversed? The trim switch operates exactly like a stick, yoke or control column: push forward (slider up), trees gets bigger, pull back (slider down), trees get smaller.

    @Tang0five yeah, the roll was a bit too much, pitch was a bit too little, so I can do better on those things next time.
