Some test videos trying out VTOL with the F-35 by controlling a second engine separately.
Coming soon to [Update 13/4/21] Available now at https://flightsim-squadron.itch.io/flightsim-aircraft/devlog/242272/f-35b-vtol-first-vertical-take-off-jet-in-msfs
Second engine animation triggered with spoiler key.
My HOTAS (Thrustmaster 4) only has one throttle stick though so I mapped the second throttle to the rocker. This is where better HOTAS like the T.1600OM would shine.
First attempt didn’t go so well 🙂
Fared better on second attempt .
Tricky getting the balance right but when it works, the results are something else !
Some multiplayer footage at Sydney:
Testing at NZQN:
If this is successful, might see about adding this flight model to some our Star Wars ships too 🙂 And Airwolf 🙂
