Self Flying Aircraft

Description
Introducing the Self Flying Aircraft that can also take off on its own!!

Using the automation blocks I have managed to build a stability system that helps keep the plane in the air. The system is also capable of ensuring the planes take off on its own with the press of one button to operate it all. The system is very basic, all it does it keep the plane stable on a specific altitude and it has a looping clock system that makes the plane turn so that it wont fly off into the sunset. Once the plane reaches 350 metres of altitude, a timer that works every 15 seconds activates that allows for the aircraft to turn.

Now why would you need a self flying plane? It's very simple. I made this creation because I also make homing weapon systems but had nothing to test them on and controlling two creations at once is impossible, so I made one that controls itself :D. Also its very fun to shoot down with any creation of your choice. Now onto the important stuff.

Controls:

Autopilot - {I} to toggle the system
Thrust - [O] Forward/ [P] Back words (plane can't autopilot back words)
Plane Controls - Arrow Keys (the pitch and descent is inverted, if you want to change that just change the rear steering hinges's keys)

The autopilot can be used at any moment. If you use it mid-air, the plane will climb to its cruising altitude (between 350 - 400 metres). If you use it on the ground from a stand still the plane will first speed up to a specific speed and then pitch up which will then climb to its cruising altitude.

The aircraft is based of off my previous uploads: The Pelican

I hope you enjoy this creation!!

Thanks! I felt like the community is not yet keen on making creations with the automation blocks just yet so i wanted to show that you can make some really cool things with them. One of the improvements on the Mk2 will be trying to eliminate braces completely since their connection points can randomly stop working.

Sweet! this thing is really cool!, and it works well. i noticed a couple braces would sometimes fall off when starting

Go ahead! It was the purpose of the plane to help with creating new things. I'm currently working on a Mk2 that has a few improvements.

I've been wanting to do this with one of my planes, create a target drone version. I hope you don't mind if I use this as a target as well as inspiration while I try and figure out how I'm going to build my own

you should use textures and colours, other than that this is a great plane!
