[moddesc=http://www.mediafire.com/?h29xjt03g4ehzbc]Original post by Ace Lord:
Ladies & Gentlemen of YSP, I present to you the XF5U Flying Pancake.
This is not an original creation, only a cleanup job of the original model from Tank's Mod Pack. I only made the canopy transparent, added navy text to the ailerons/elevators and threw a simple cockpit into the DNM which came with the original model.

Along with a little DAT work this plane flies quite well, though the takeoff run is extremely short. There is one other perk about this aircraft I have not mentioned yet, it's STOVL capbility.

Let's put it this way..............In a 50 knot headwind, with a carrier moving at 30 knots into that headwind, you can takeoff and land vertically as long as that carrier stays in the wind. There is one provision to landing though, you still have to catch the wire, or you will be speeding across the deck and be forced to takeoff again.

Feel free to modify this, but send an e-mail to Tank and let him know that you have modified his aircraft. If you use this as a base model for further improvement, credit Tank for the original model and myself for the preliminary cleanup

Credits: Tank for original model & VicViper for consultation on the DAT[/moddesc]

This is one of my favourite planes... I, too, have tinkered with it, adding a cockpit and (from an Oranleed Spitfire) a pilot. Also flipped the normals in the glass radome. Here's the download link:

...Say, how would I e-mail Mister Tank about his model? I had a quick look at his site, but it's all in Japanese. Does anyone have a contact address??

Well, I had a look around and his site seems to have stopped activities some time around 2009. I'm not sure he's still around. Anyways, looked for an email, didn't spot one. Someone may know japanese and find it, I'm just trying to use translators.

Or I could just release the mod with all due credits. (Just looking at it again, thinking I could add more detail to the cockpit. Maybe an instrument panel...)
