Will there be startup time, such as like in a real plane, where as you need some distance on land to get speed?
I can't test it yet but I can't wait, also, I would like to see a video :tongue.gif:
This would be used like a normal plane but require this:
So the recipe would be this:
T=Tail, W=Wing, Propeller=P, Pontoon(?)=Z
 T 
Z - P - Z
This is a plane that fits in nicely and a nice compagnion to the balloons.
Some suggestions for the recipes:
you should put the furnace into the recipe for the nose. That way you can use a boat as the centre for the whole plane.
If you want it not to be something you can build before your first night, make the propeller out of iron.
Also the wings could use a piece of string in the centre (an x pattern in the model) those help keep the wings straight.
for a second tier plane you two motors/propellers to give double speed. However you might want to increse the material requirement for some of the othe parts as well.
