    Mini Star Wars

    Thank you! I want to say those Air-brakes where the first building blocks of this whole project. When the idea came to mind I couldn't stop working on the craft, then it became the motivation to build the others. The VTOL is a motivation in itself, I love building and flying these type Aircraft. My son is a top maintenance mechanic on these in the RL and makes me a proud dad for sure. (MV-22's).

    Thank you! I appreciate the nice comments, these are nice to hear after so many hours of work. I do agree they where very challenging.

    Mini Star Wars

    Mini Star Wars (Drones) This project was inspired by the Mini SR-71 Drone. I started with the Mini X-Wing and then one thing lead to another so I started building other craft. Each Craft is available as an Aircraft as shown at the later part of the video. The Space Craft are available and given an SC suffix for Space Craft. @klond built an amazing Star Wars Crawl and we in cooperated it into the project along with a K&S Logo. I found a very nice Battlecrusier on Kerbalx and asked the builder if it would be ok to feature his craft in the video. So big thanks to vasco2gama for allowing us to feature his craft. Photos Operations X-Wing requires Action Group 7 for landing gear because the cockpit it a landing gear. Full Throttle, SAS, RCS & Space Bar to begin Lift Off. Space Bar a second time will engage the Juno's for forward thrust. Action Groups 1 for VTOL and 2 for rear engines. After a high rate of speed (130-140) the VTOL Engines can be shut down. Half or near Half Throttle seems to be a good starting point for VTOL landing. Y-Wing requires the VTOL engines to run continuously during handling. Full Throttle, SAS, RCS & Space Bar to begin Lift Off. Space Bar a second time will engage the Juno's for forward thrust. Action Groups 1 for VTOL and 2 for rear engines. Tie Fighter is a very delicate Aircraft when it comes to landing and high speeds are a must for vertical flight. Keeping the nose at a slight upwards angle is often needed to maintain flight. Full Throttle, SAS, RCS & Space Bar to begin Lift Off. Space Bar a second time will engage the Juno's for forward thrust. Action Groups 1 for VTOL and 2 for rear engines. Mini Millennium Falcon Full Throttle, SAS, RCS & Space Bar to begin Lift Off. Space Bar a second time will engage the Juno's for forward thrust. Action Groups 1 for VTOL and 2 for rear engines. Remember, if it looks like a rock, it probably will fly like one!

    Old Lighthouse

    Trying to cause a spoiler here? I'll say this much .... +3

    Old Lighthouse

    Sounds like good enough motivation to me! Got a Star Wars thing I'm working on right now, it would be cool if I finished it today because it's Hon Solo's Birthday Today

    Really nice! ....Also you have me really curious about that landing gear

    Old Lighthouse

    "Old Lighthouse" An Old Craft Build I am posting upon request. Apply full throttle, lower landing gear press space bar and hold down the Q key for it to start then let it go. Speed is a little slow but its working surprisingly because it was built in a version about 3 years ago. Please excuse the poor video quality my video editor wasn't up to snuff back then. I still remember it being a fun project. The design plan was to have enough fuel and electricity to continue running through the night, some adjustments were made recently and not sure if it will still perform as well.
