USAF Make It Fly

Do you have what it takes to design the next generation Air Force fighter jet? Or the first ever remotely piloted, long-range bomber? This official U.S. Air Force app is a fun and challenging game that lets you test your engineering prowess by building and then flying your own aircraft. In order to complete a series of mission objectives, you must choose from different fuselages, wings, engines and weapons to create the right plane for the job. Pick the correct combination of parts and you will advance to the next mission. Pick wrong and back to the drawing board you go.
Not bad for a first try, but more playtesting on the build feature was needed on older hardware was needed before release. The builder crashes regularly while building a global survellance vehicle and is also unstable in the other features under build. I've yet to go into the free fly section, but I hope that it is more stable there than the build section.
I'm just confused as to why they would incorporate ramjets in the build section since nothing in the current inventory uses them. I had expected to see turbofan engines since the C-130 is showcased in there and I believe it would be fun building a globe-trotting cargo hauler using them.
The process of making the plane is very easy and smooth. My only complaint is that the free flight mode flight controls arent as polished a the rest of the game. The planes are very hard to control. However, the missions are really cool and fun and I enjoyed them. I would love to see more missions available. Overall, this game is wonderful and I highly recommend it.
Great app, but could use changes
I actually really enjoy this app! It is great to get people more familiar with US aircraft! The only thing it needs is to be able to rotate the model of the plane you are building while selecting parts, and also be able to put the proper engines on the planes! I feel pretty dumb putting a fighter engine on a C5, but there are no engines big enough for the plane!
