One advantage I've noticed with wings is that they seem to eliminate most propeller wobble. They seem to behave almost like balloons and allow for stationary hovering with much less user micromanagement. They're perfect for floating weapon platforms.
You can use any of my designs if you want.
I've also got some designs here on this site.
I normally prefer to build smaller, faster, and more maneuverable aircraft that run at 100% speed. This is my exception. This is my Battlecruiser. I sacrificed speed to carry a ridiculous amount of firepower.
The Battlecruiser carries 8 long range missiles and 8...
It seems like the stable copter can hover almost indefinitely. I've left it for many minutes at a time. The missiles give it a slight forward lean though, so with weapons it can't be left alone for long periods of time.

This machine spins 16 bombs around at a ridiculously fast speed. It hurls these bombs 4 at a time, and is capable of launching all 16 bombs in less than 1 second.

Unlike my fighter, this plane was designed to fly slower. By stalling and tapping accelerate the attacker...
I made a tutorial today that shows how to create a vehicle that uses circular saws instead of wheels. The saws are far faster than wood wheels, immune to fire, and any enemy infantry that so much as taps them dies instantly.
