    Changing the wing in the files to “Wing-2” changes it to a structural wing but it also keeps the control surface as well.@Grant14299

    I really love this,but i do not wanna be a stickler and say that speed in MPH is actually speed in KPH...

    Anyway,the aircraft is super cool and fun to fly.I am already amazed by your building skills,considering you are in bronze(while me who is in bronze cannot even make an airplane xd).

    Here,an upvote.
    Well deserved :D

    Cool plane dude. If you're having problems with stabalizers and wings shaking you should use structural wings istead, they dont have any wing flex to them. I was able to make an f15 that can go mach 20 without destroying itself so it should work on your plane as well. For control surfaces i just used rotators.

    @ColonelCanada At around the 2000mph mark it starts running into issues with the vertical stabilizers wobbling really fast, so I decided to just limit the speed. There’s probably a solution for this but I couldn’t find one.
