I can't use any kind of gear where I fly because it's tall native grassland, so if they can't slide in on their tummies I'm not flyin' 'em.
Yep. I think I'll be pulling the gear off the F-18 and add packing tape the underside for strength and slipperyness on the rough ground. Now that I can actually fly the F-4 I think the F-18 will seem a bit easier. When I did a ground test testing the modified nose gear the lift was staggering, she wanted to fly with almost no airspeed. I'm guessing down the road when I can fly her properly, I could probably add spoileron and fly high alpha with her. But that's in my head, I clearly make mistakes with my mental physics engine 1.0 lol.
