P38 Lightning to replace the Rustler.
This was aircraft scratch built to fit in with SA, it features working twin rudders and correct undercarriage action.
The Handling was set up to use OP9080's SA loader but will work without it no problem.

Enjoy flying her,
pinky.

nice mod! always waiting a mod like this! look forward to download


feedback: top speed for P38 is a little too high, i found it is impossible to land it during flying school test, and i dont know why it crashed 8 times out of 10 at the beginning of "takeoff" test. and those foils didn't move after close up the landing gear, but they move perfectly when on the ground. hope you can fix those.

oh, and nice mod:)

Glad you like her.
The speed is only about 20-25mph over on level flight, during diving, Lightnings, Spitfires and a handful of the more powerful WW2 aircraft were known to go supersonic.
The rudder issue can't really be altered, they do work with the gear up though, it is the speed that affects them working.
this is down to them using the rear wheel nodes to operate them, R* must have programmed in a steering damper to help reduce instability at high speeds for the cars. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about this and it will remain a problem, the rudders do still operate though.
I personally wouldn't recommend using any vehicles with modified handling for any missions at all and the P38 certainly wasn't set up to be used in the flight school.

Hope that clears up any doubts as I did do a lot of testing to get this plane working at all.
