The entire point of the plane is to explore the virtual world in RealFlight so I tailored the plane for that world.
i grabbed both the latest releases of the Lazy Eight off the swaps very nicely done thanks , and talking about Real World driveshaft vibrations , that is in engines crank shafts and driven shafts . Propeller drive systems and torsional vibrations always come into play , but balancing and having the hard steel shaft and keeping the length to a minimum also helps

This is the first thing that came to my mind the moment I saw your color scheme. Despite it being old, and slightly different, it sure is a way to bring back memories!

Very nicely done scheme.
