Hello all. I just recently discovered FS2004 and am having a ball. To think I've been playing DnD games all this time...
I've been gathering up my favorite aircraft to fly in the game, but haven't been able to find the X-31 yet. Here's a link from NASA about it if you've never seen it before: http://www.nasa.gov/centers/dryden/news/FactSheets/FS-009-DFRC.html
If there's a model of it out there with the working vectoring vanes, that would make for some sweet aerobatics.
I've also seen a version of the F-18 with vectored thrusting. Here's a pic: http://www.flygplan.info/images/f18_x31_f16.jpg
If these aircraft don't exist then I've just found something I will eventually contribute to the community...as soon as I dig around the SDKs and stop flying long enough to work on them. 🙂
