    Instead of spinning joints, is there any way to make them ball joints? It'd be great to be able to move his wings like he does in the game.

    Has anyone done a mod like this or plans on doing one?

    cant say I've seen some one do it. If I did try it I'd have think about the space needed to add ball joints and how the joint could interfere with what's just below it and how it would disrupt the flat top of the jet.

    There's definitely space below where his joint is in plane mode. The joint is placed right above the backside of his knee. I don't know a thing about how to install a ball joint, but the plastic around the joint is pretty hollowed out. Maybe you could keep the joint, cut around the base of the plane where the wings connect, and put a pin through it all?
