I don't think it's particularly realistic, but here's a modified Su-27 doing Kulbits using actual thrust vectoring and not RCS. (Sorry for the audio quality, I'm using the built in Win10 recorder and it's ugh )
So here's how to do it:
Step 1: Map the thrust vector axis to your normal pitch, ie up/down on the stick. This will make flying a normal VTOL a-la Harrier pretty much impossible, but it's the only way to do this.
Step 2: How it actually works
ThrustAngles=0.0,-30.0,0.0 //This is the important one. It needs to be the same angle as the MaxVectoredPitchAngle, or it won't work. With this the "neutral" stick position will also leave the thrust vectoring at 0º, and pitching up or down will pitch the thrust vectoring up or down accordingly.
Step 3: You'll need to add the StabilityAugmentation= parameter to the FlightControl section. Otherwise the plane will just spin like crazy if the AoA gets too high.
Edit: I'm very sorry, I posted this before I actually finished writing. I guess the Kulbits left me a bit disoriented
if ya noticed a couple of minutes a go i posted some ss of my Su-30KI, now im not gonna post it for download because im planning to make it into the 35S with Thrust vectoring and a new cockpit. now..
what do i use to edit cockpit models? what software needed to design it or any utilities? (the Su-35 cockpit for download dont look so great and i wanna improve on it a lot)
Secondly, How do i add thrust vectoring nozzles to an aircraft without Thrust vectoring?.
> The model i use as a base is Marcfighter’s Su-27 and i also have the 37 installed and see it has the nozzles modeled and working.

The 30KI info:
1997-1998 Sukhoi talks with Indonesia about selling Su-30, in 1998 aircraft was in hurry converted to demonstrator called Su-30KI, rebuilded using "chinese" upgrade kit Su-27SK (but retain air-refueling probe and OLS on right side). Aircraft with number 27 has a new camouflage - white and black waves on old grey background. First flight 06.1998, then shifted to Akhtubinsk air range for tests. Please note that aircraft has nothing in common with real Su-30 except name (it's the only one-seat aircraft with name Su-30!).
In 2002 was rebuilt once again, to prototype of upgrade packet of the Su-27s, so it's name was changed to Su-27SMand for export Su-27SMK with new avionics, newest air-to-ground missiles. Bort number 305, camouflage as previous, but more waves on nose of the aircraft and inner surfaces of tail fins. It was presented on MAKS-2003 and many shows.
My take on the 30KI is a variant if it was modernized the same way Indonesia’s Su-27’s were modernized to the SKM variants
I’m still new here but i have plans on a Su-35S add on but idk if i can make my own model yet..
Was up really late last night and found this database on the world's Su-27 and variants Flankers: http://www.sukhoi.mariwoj.pl/
Definitely worth a browse and more if one is working anything Flanker from the -27 to the -30, -33, -34, & -35.
There's even a Su-57 (PAK-FA) page: http://su57.mariwoj.pl/, An Il-76/A-50 page: http://www.sukhoi.mariwoj.pl/a-50.htm, and finally a PDF for Ilyushin Il-18, Il-20, Il-22, Il-38.

Thought it was time for me to start a forum thread on my Nihon Hitori 2020 campaign to update all on my progress. Learned a lot so far as to the SF2 engine, much more to learn. Also wanted to start a forum thread to explain my creative process and keep folks abreast of developments plus pose questions.
Now the pretext of "Nihon Hitori 2020" (Japan Alone 2020 in Japanese) is a mid 2/2020 campaign where the 201 & 203 JASDF Squadrons of F-15Js hold the line against a red tide of Flankers attacking Japanese ships & Hokkaido airports until JASDF reinforcements arrive to start shoving the Russians off of the Kurils as payback... and then a few F-35As help F-2A reinforcements kick a** ending with an explosive air-sea battle against a Russian surface task force. All within 24 hours, so the JMSDF emergency task force is racing up at 30 knots to have some AEGIS & aircraft-carrying destroyers formate with some older "escort destroyers" out of Ominato base and then sortie together to North Hokkaido from their Honshu bases while the shooting war only intensifies. All without overt US assistance as the current US President is more than likely to tell Japan they're on their own - he's already shown a clear misunderstanding at best of his responsibilities as Commander-in-Chief, a clear contempt for NATO, a deep empathy for Russian President Vladimir Putin, there's some open contempt between the current Japanese Prime Minister & the US President as a previous mentorship seems to have fallen apart, and the current US President even openly thinks, "If the United States keeps on … its current path of weakness, [Japan is] going to want to have [nuclear weapons] anyway with or without me discussing it."
With that backstory, here's how the first mission is going to likely go:
There's still some things that need to be firmed up, but this is the general idea for mission 01. Using WikiPedia for Order of Battle/ORBAT unless tipped off for a better source so Sukhoi Flanker plane color schemes and variants can and will change.
When the second mission in sequence is firmed up and the third & fourth one (one of which will have JASDF F-35A), will announce that here also.
Please follow this topic and ask me any questions or requests you got. Goal is to drop this mission pak on or before 25 March 2019 - my birthday!
