  1. @T-Bouw You have to be really careful, it's touchy But honestly I thought it wasnt so hard... So I went to try it again, and suprisingly, it is more controlable without SAS, and it just requires fast reactions. Yours looks nice and simple, very clean.
  2. I was working on a VTOL design at the time I found this thread, and it was quite unstable, and didn't have the power margin to save bad landing attempts, plus legs as landing gear, negative dihedral and so on, so here you go, one funky version, and one actually stable and nice version, just to warm up my soup... Attempted flying multiple designs, but I really liked the autogyro, so i kinda fixed it by trim, and it was quite flyable after that. Props to anyone who landed the Oscar, that thing is truly a challenge. https://imgur.com/a/mAhG7KU for the other pictures, https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uAGKPA2EGVCySTTgHhwwE5_GrQAMfzxF/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ioU2Vy4oqThV2JdK_NeCmd6qUSSyhBbe/view?usp=sharing for the vids. https://kerbalx.com/Vit_Salava/MeatFly-B https://kerbalx.com/Vit_Salava/MeatFly-A(not the challenge)
  3. This challenge is fun, apart from driving the development of my "fancy" VTOL, via removing the rcs and making it flyable without sas, I tried flying @Klapaucius's Oscar, which is really hard to fly, and I didn't succeed yet. Also, @vyznev's Autogyro was nice, after adjusting the rotor tip deploy a bit more flyable, I even landed that. And @ShadoxFilms's Dragon is seriously fun to fly. I will post my attempts and the VTOL in a less controloble version when I'm done with them.
  4. My entry: The Bugger Flip m8... where is Chumbucket?
  5. Some of you were interested, so here it is: https://kerbalx.com/Vit_Salava/Skim-1
  6. Honestly, I just took how the real planes look and made it in KSP, applied a bit of flying model aircraft builder's "magic"(just the adjusted thrust angle really). The torque isnt that fierce, I havent had any problems with it flippping. It works fine, but I may need to give it a bigger HTP or move the wings back a bit, its twitchy. Aerodynamicaly. If you are interested, I will share the plane tomorrow.
  7. Thanks a lot, I like it oldschool, thats why the propellers
  8. I set forth to use proppelers, so I built a vague macchi fighter mashup. In the bigger lake, (which is easy mode) I managed to land and fly out of, with 45m/s v1 I had to stuff the plane into one end and nearly hit the wall on the other side. In the smaller hole I landed, but had no chance of getting out. Flatspin landings anyone? Rest of the images:https://imgur.com/a/MMAnxHa
  9. Where's the fun, mad max and explosions in wider wheelbase? Yeah, I will make it wider. and the controls are a solid idea, thank you for input.
  10. Thanks for reminding me of that techniqe. I joined the forums a bit after my kerbal zenith. You saved me a lot of anger nontheless. Appreciate it.
  11. Decided to try the Elcano challenge, built a mad max-ish rover and set off. After like 3km I rolled of a hill, prior to which i tried to repair my solar panels. Not giving up. Second attempt, rolled it 4km further. REDESIGN NEEDED. After a pause. Pictures are here
  12. See the pictures of my temple landing of a biplane without brakes: https://imgur.com/a/6LwLl42 Challenge by @Triop
