  1. Why not just revert to 1.4.3?? You don't need either, really. Your trajectory is displayed on the map screen, if you've scanned the surface. I put it on biome mode first, making sure I'm going where I need to be, then I change it to slope mode and aim for a flat spot. I suppose you would need the trajectory mod if you were going through atmosphere, but the ALCOR pod isn't made for that anyway. You don't need suicide burn time because you have current and minimum impact speed displayed prominently in the landing mode screen. If you want maximum efficiency, use autoland.

    No DMP client window....help?
  3. Damn. I was very confident in my Skytrain Humpback until I saw this...It's a real shame that using mk1 cabins seems to be a must to keep the cost down. I'm a fan of elegant designs with low part counts. Well, hats off, you got me beat.
  4. Biggie Airlines presents its magnum opus: The Skytrain Humpback This magnificent aircraft carries 408 passengers over 5000 km at speeds over Mach 3. Price is set at $316,771,000 each. Climb at 160 m/s after takeoff, expect 20000 m and 1130 m/s after 5 mins. Stay at full throttle and climb SLOWLY (~35 mins) to 22000 m as fuel drains, keeping speed no less than 1100 m/s and no greater than 1200 m/s. Range of greater than 5000 km has been proven using these guidelines. Steady cruise is not recommended, as it will yield less range. She's a delight to fly and lands like a feather floating down onto a pillow.
  5. Biggie Airlines is bigly proud to present: The Skytrain Orca This elegant jumbo jet carries 168 passengers around the globe at mach 3.5 for the low price of $194,449,000. Expect 21000 m and 1200 m/s after 5 mins. To achieve supercruise, keep throttle at maximum and climb to 22000 m over the next 20-30 mins. Keep speed at 1200 m/s to avoid overheat. Using supercruise, the Skytrain Orca has been proven to be able to circumnavigate Kerbin and land with 7200 units of fuel remaining. It may even be possible to circumnavigate Kerbin twice, although this is untested.
  6. Biggie Airlines would like to submit the jumbo airliner the 'Maui' for consideration. Maui Cost: $169,871,000 Expect 180 m/s at 9000 m 10 mins after takeoff. Final cruise is 200 m/s at 10000 m. Features flap, spoiler, and thrust control. This puppy flies like a dream. Seats 240 passengers.
  7. As a side note, AtmosphereAutopilot by Boris-Barboris is a god-tier mod which has a fly-by-wire that makes very unstable aircraft fly smooth as butter. I should probably tighten up my stability if the judges aren't using it.
  8. Has nobody submitted a proper jumbo? If not I'll make one. I've made one before.
  9. First off, his is in my top 5 favorite mods. But I need help. I've lost my Cruise Flight controller GUI...it won't come up. I think it might be hidden off screen or something. Help?

    Anyone know anything about KAC having RPM integration?

    Design Problem

    DPAI has an alignment gauge right at the top, and I also always install Thrust Controlled Avionics, so even if was way off it would only decrease efficiency. I wasn't flying it, it was stock mechjeb's ascent profile. I could edit the profile and see if I gain efficiency.

    Design Problem

    hahahaha you neever know. Not letting Jeb die on my watch! I think this is exactly the solution I was looking for, very elegant, thank you. What are your thoughts on aerobreaking vs gravity assist breaking from a moon?
