[STOCK] 1:1 F-117A Nighthawk

Recommended Posts

F-117A Nighthawk

I've decided to give this rectangular, highly draggy brick a try. Making the Nighthawk really is a problem of making a really unflyable shape flyable. After a ton of fine-tuning I've managed to make it quite manageable and neutrally stable without SAS. It definitely isn't as easy to fly as some of my fighters (Well, it shouldn't be really) and requires some practice to get used to it's input response delay and odd yaw behavior, but it is by no means frustratingly sluggish. It can pull 4-5G turns at 140-150m/s. At low altitude it tops out at approx. 160m/s and can hit 270-280m/s high up. It also features a functional internal bomb bay opened with AG2. It houses a payload of two GBU-10 bombs dropped through staging. Overall I'm pretty happy with the result as this has been a very experimental build for me. I hope you will enjoy flying it.
