How to keep planes from going into orbit?

#11
It could be HA and fly just fine. Turning my wooden hovercraft to completely metal turned the speed from 63 to 61m/s. If I made it HA, it would probably go about 55+

I'm just rather confused by the way they have the wing lift so high. I know it makes for easier builds (especially with heavy armor) but it just doesn't look right.

I don't even need wings on my planes after all the testing. About 10 wing blocks is all that my aircraft needs to fly and that is in almost any configuration.

If there was a way to reduce the amount of lift generated by the wing blocks or a way for the AI to know how to nose the aircraft down, I could actually make a plane that looks like a plane. Or, if there was another version of wing block that had reduced lift capability... possibly even heavier armored, I'd likely use that. <Seems like that sort of thing would be worth throwing out there as a suggestion.

Of course this isn't a very huge problem and only really affects small builds, but I can't even build a bi-plane properly without substituting the actual wing blocks with control surfaces. It's a work around, and it does work, but I'd like to see a real-world type of plane function more reliably and/or AI know how to handle excessive lift.

Well, potential things that will get taken care of in time I suppose.

You can use dedicated heliblades, they don't actually produce force by themselves.

Having the same problem for days. even without any wings my plane flys to orbit.

i'm going to guess that your center of thrust (where your jets or dediblades are) is below your center of drag, pushing your aircraft up. If that doesn't help, try posting the blueprint here on the forums so we can look at it to help.
