Had some time to just get to be able to fire it up, and had a quick flight with her -rolling TO and landing mind...

Looks absolutely lovely and -unlike some modules- it 'sits' right and on the ground not above it!

Beautiful job and as good as any module and for me possibly the best yet.

Nice screenies. I absolutely love this module. Still struggling with VTOL but ok with CTOL and STOL.

I've been mainly practicing doing the classic VL onto the AK. Not used the water for extra power and no weapons -although fuel level is pretty high on the first attempts and drops as I do 'circuits'. Managed to do about 8 or 9 in a row now without bending it. 2 of those have been 'good', one not satisfactory at all and the rest in between!

Bloomin' great fun and what true flight-simming should be -seat of the pants style...

If it helps, here are some screens with the most important details of how I currently aim to approach the deck, hover to the left and swing in and drop -under control where possible...
