I must have missed post # 58, I don`t know the bug that you speak of with the gyro, but, if it won`t work, don`t waste your time. It would be a nice feature though.

That is very cool, that really puts its size into perspective.

The horizontal stabilizer of the full size An-225 is larger than the wingspan of the Boeing 737.

Well when the aircraft can carry 5 T-72 battle tanks at once. Each T-72 being 23 ft long, 12 feet wide, and weighing in at 41 tons. It sort of needs a little perspective to something more familiar.

I have been thinking (scheming) of upping the size to eighth and ~775 lbs. Because it is one of the "largest" aircraft to date. I just found one that is in development that trumps all that I know of that made it off paper Scaled Composites Stratolaunch

This one is 100x bigger than the one I showed you which is 10x scale. But this one does not fly yet.
