Brown Recluse MkII

Inspired by the new zones, I redesigned one of my best machines! It can drive on walls like the original, and it can FLY! Plus it has a grabber arm for added versatility. In the demo video, you can see it beat Relict Frost, Consumed King, some of the tougher previous zones, and two of Shade's flying challenges!

The flying controls are a bit unusual, since I had to get creative to fit the necessary mechanisms into a compact car.

Taking off, and leaning forward and back to change speed, work about the same as in most helicopters. But some other maneuvers work differently:

Gliding - The rotors function as wings even when they're not on, so controlling altitude is surprisingly easy. The easiest way to fly, is to tilt forward to gain forward speed, then shut off the rotors and steer the machine like a glider. Before you turn the rotors back on for more lift, make sure make sure the machine is near level, so you don't get pulled off course.

Landing - When landing, you'll be safe as long as you land flat. You can even land quickly by running the rotors in reverse for downforce, which makes landing in a precise area easier.

Steering - Rather than having separate roll and yaw controls, this machine only has one aerial steering control. Initially, steering tilts the machine to one side. The machine has more sideways drag in the back than the front, so the faster you're going, the faster the yaw adjusts to your new direction. At very slow speeds, you can inch to one side with little change in the direction you're facing. At higher speeds, the machine handles more like an airplane.

Grey Wolf Jack Yes, it's totally vanilla! I used the advanced building tools added in March for the precise spacing and angles. You can check and see that there aren't any scaled blocks or blocks that are overpowered beyond vanilla limits.

totally amazing! It fly perfectly stable and is very handly. Way better than brown recluse 1.0 and very funny due to th ability to fly and downforce.
