The Mighty Duck is my personal favorite craft for reviving the activity of a certain old island base. I like to keep my most secretive new craft in the hangars out there; right next to those recovered UFO parts! I love to use the reverse thrusters (key 1) on both short runway (island base) and water landings! …and no, you don’t really need to fire those JATO rockets via staging (spacebar) on takeoff, but they can be a real blast!

UV-14 Barracuda Submersible
RV-11 Gator 6x6 Amphibious Rover

RV-17s Mini-vee 4x4 Rover (coming soon)

Special Thanks!
To: Shaun for suggesting a bit of rotation on the main wings to improve slow flight performance. The flight testing proofed out, and you’ll notice a little bit of extra AoA on the main wings. Not too much, but it’s those little tweaks that can make a difference.
