So apparently the V-22 is capable of flying with the rotors and wings folded. Huh.

That's not flying, that's falling with style.

Yee Haw! :lol:

The developer probably only modeled the FDM within the nominal flight envelope... If it is YASim that is the only way possible. ;)

it's worth keeping in mind that the visuals of an aircraft have nothing to do with the underlying flight dynamics - in fact, you can hook up arbitrary 3D models to an FDM, and you can also hook up arbitrary FDMs to any given 3D model.

For things to become plausible, there needs to be an explicit "link" between the two
