Description

The Lockheed XV-4B hummingbird was a prototype V/STOL aircraft, utilizing 4 lift jets to perform vertical takeoff and landing and two ,ore for normal horizontal flight. This is based off of the later variant, the XV-4B. Both prototypes eventually crashed, making this attempt at a V/STOL unsuccessful.

For flight, follow the below instructions
1 - Toggle VTOL engines and engine bay
2 - Toggle horizontal flight engines
3 - Toggle flaps
Toggle RCS to help with control while in vertical flight. For transitioning from vertical to horizontal flight, build up about 50m/s of speed 100 m off the ground to ensure not crashing. For horizontal to vertical flight, pitching up is required as the lift jets are pointed slightly backwards, as on the real thing.

Note: The pictures are slightly outdated. The new version (25-Jun-2017) has some minor aesthetic changes to the cockpit area.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
