  1. With all that flipping, why don't you seize the chance and turn the buggy into a Reliant Robin, definitely 10 times more entertainment.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    I'm on KSP 1.5, and have just removed hotfixed KJR because it seems to cause problems for Infernal Robotics. I'm so not used to seeing the wings flex. Now the wings do have some dihedral to start with, but still it's a bit alarming to watch.

    What is your most facepalm-worthy moment regarding KSP?

    I build a plane with large canards, and decided to also use them as airbrakes. I set them to 85 degrees pointing downwards, then took the plane out for a spin. During landing I touched down, activated brakes and the canards went into action, pushing the nose so hard into the ground the nose wheel suspension traveled all the way, then bounced up violently and crashed the right wing into the ground.

    I need some suggestions

    I don't see a J-35 Draken, could be an interesting little plane to build.

    Holiday's almost over here, so I took out my new plane for endurance tests. First up is full afterburner dash, M2.1~2.2@17000m: Then I went for max dry power, M1.5~M1.54@13050m: Both runs we left around 600 units of kerosene in the tanks for throttle control during landing. A bit amused we only got around 300km more range not utilizing afterburner, albeit we were flying a lot slower and lower. Next up we'll be trying subsonic ferrying and see if we will be able to achieve circumnavigation relying solely on internal fuel.

    Can't say I expected trim to work on something that's not a plane.

    I want a compensation for all the time lost pressing W.
  8. First time browsing the mission report section on the forums, and came across this golden thread. I enjoyed the P2P challenge, looking forward to you completing this journey!

    Haha, exactly! I've made a size-accurate one before this one, only to find out the airframe is just too draggy for the AJE engines, had to make a smaller one and make subtle changes here and there. I'll just let this Raven stay how it looks, craft another one with real life improvements I have in mind.

    Interesting enough, extending the wings doesn't help at all, only makes it worse in most categories.

    Sorry for the so very late reply, many thanks for your great help! Now I have time to play KSP again, I'm currently doing some more experiments and making different crafts, incorporating your advice.

    Bigger isn't always better. At least when I decided to find out how hard the twin bridge challenge is.

    Quick question for all you experts out there: I'm currently meddling with some forward swept wings and came up with a plane with its CoL ahead of its CoM; During test flights I noticed this: https://i.imgur.com/6wG7ALY.gifv Hope you guys can see it but if you don't, basically the TVC nozzles, instead of pushing the tail around the axis, is actually pointed slightly towards the opposite direction, countering the pitching moment to keep the plane stable(what I suppose it's doing, I'm running Atmosphere Autopilot). Q1: I suppose I'm wasting energy with the nozzles pointing at the wrong direction? Q2: Is this a result of excess control surfaces(too much imput) or pitch instability(CoL ahead of CoM)?
