Flight tips:

  • The YF-66 is a fickle and potentially dangerous aircraft to pilot. One must take care and always be light on the control stick. Deviating past an Angle of Attack greater than 10° may result in loss of control and an unrecoverable flatspin.

  • Reaching maximum speed isn’t as easy as simply pointing straight and opening the throttle. Cruise speed must be reached at 15,000m and a shallow dive must be entered until 10,000m. At this point you should be well over Mach 3 and accelerating. A shallow ascent will get you past the 20km service ceiling.

It’s got two wings and flies, is there anything else you need?
