"Doors are opening, and opportunities are aligning. Was I made for this?"
Here's something a little different. I have been doing a lot of military stuff lately, so this was refreshing.
Standard controls with
throttle. There are airbrakes.
Activator 1 to override turning restrictions (If your wheels are not turning, activate this group)
Activator 2 to use the parking brake
Activator 3 to open/expose engine.
Trim to adjust main wing lift (changes AoA)
Trim down to increase lift/AoA
Trim up to decrease lift/AoA
This aircraft can fly pretty slowly with trim completely down. Try a throttle of about 50%, for a speed of about 70-80 mph.
Adjustments are necessary when flying at low speed. You are pretty close to stalling when you are flying at minimum speed.
This plane can pretty much land anywhere. Use your parking brake to prevent sliding on inclines.

2.3 Advantages of the Differential Electric Engine
As a momentary dip into civilian aviation, SPEcorp's Edo-45 is a purpose-built bushplane that can operate in a variety of environments. The aircraft is inexpensive to purchase and maintain, and can land almost anywhere. As a result, the Edo-45 bushplane experienced minor successes in the civilian market, specifically among rural communities.
Technically speaking, the aircraft is simple. Its novel propulsion system, though, does require a fair amount of explanation. Therefore, the remainder of Edo-45's technical documentation will discuss the Differential Electric Engine.

Sure, it was a long description, but it wasn't too bad. If you read it, then thank you! Special thanks to SPMC for helping me make some aesthetic decisions.
