G'day again, I'm willing to test the planes in 1.x and give notes and updates to the cfg's but I've only been able to test one plane, the F-18, because it came with a craft file in the download (so it was already put together). It seems that in KSP 1.x (I'm using the most updated version) the attachment nodes for the wings don't work so I can't get the wings put on therefore I can't fly a plane with no wings.
Anyway getting on with the F-18, well the animations of the rear stabilizers work fine, the rudder and aileron animations don't (at all). As for the flying bit... as soon as I just tap the throttle the plane accelerates to warp speed reaching the edge of the universe in a matter of seconds. Great for crushing your enemies in other dimensions by breaking the very existence of it (my game crashes after a while, usually when reverting or going back to the SPH).
Anyway I'm willing to help, my limit of helpfulness is telling you bugs (animation, control issues etc.), tweaking cfg's (haven't done anything yet) and maybe making new camouflage patterns in Photoshop.
There is an issue with the attach nodes. Pressing alt f12 and ticking the bottom box temporarily resolves this. The cfg. File is missing updated info that I posted a generic fix on this site. Thanks for the help.
