    KSP Stock Prop Design Challenge

    Contr. no. 009 Gen. Postwar. P-59A Gryphon C-7 aeronautics, Phantom Division. Following the success of the P-45 and it's variants, It was quickly modernized postwar, fitted with the newest engine from the motor division, the Griffon Contra-prop, and a juno turbojet engine as a boost, though it is capable of being powered rather nicely by the griffon alone, the Juno allows for an extra 25m/s at low altitudes and remains untested at high altitudes. Featuring an extended nose, heightened tail, clipped wings of a different design than the bolt's and Tricycle landing gear more suitable for it's frontal weight, elongated nose and for better braking. UPDATED RECENTLY With the removal of the plate armor behind the cockpit, suitable for peace time operations (and frankly wasnt very effective or good looking) Download coming soon.

    Con. No.003 Contractor : Dominion aircraft, Phantom Division. Gen. WW2 P-45 Bolt A Pre-war design, one of the first to be of all metal construction, using the aging Quadronus engine from the early 30's. Owing to it's large size and small powerplant, R.O.C. is less than Ideal but has excellent energy from altitude making it superb in Boom'n zoom attacks. At high altitude, it can keep up with most heavy bombers making it acceptable for escort duties but not ideal. speed measured at 6.5KM Download: https://kerbalx.com/PhantomAerospace/P-45-Bolt

    Contract no.007 G5 Phantom Aerospace XF-15 Heartbreaker Built under a Developement contract for the USN and USMC, currently under consideration. Nicknamed Heartbreaker due to the shape of it's tail. it has faired well in test flights though a little sluggish on the controls.

    Finally got around to building a Dumpling/panel prop with 18 wheels and may or may not have used jon's as a source of inspiration, i was having a lot of vibration issues with the prop, so i went to see how he did it, you gotta put the blades directly over a bearing. With the decreased parts compared to a contemporary engine (65 vs. 55) and extra power, i think i'll use this quite a bit where radius isnt as much of an issue. lastly, jon at high speeds it keeps bumping against the tanks and they jump forward ad backwards a lot, how did you fix this with yours?

    Contract no.1, Generation 1 PA. A-210 Shortly following the navy's request for a heavy fighter with an integrated cannon, the design bureau immediately jumped into action, using the standard PC-A cannon, installing it behind the cockpit and before the fuel tank, this decreases risk in case of malfunction by having the fuel away from the barrel in the event of an explosion. armed with a further 6 rockets and 2 600kg bombs, this aircraft is nothing to tango with. when combat flaps are deployed, This jet has a very tight turning radius considering it's size, configuration and armament. Taking advantage of the newly discovered benefits of swept wings, the elongated trapezoidal design allows for superior speed as compared to it's straight winged comrades. lastly, with the added weight of the arms, RATO boosters were needed to match with the Navy's request for a short take off run. https://kerbalx.com/PhantomAerospace/A-210-Gladius

    probably the best armed plane i'v built since i stopped using BDA, got a stock semi-auto cannon with 6 rockets and 2 "bombs" and is very encumbered the cannon has a tube mag and is under those radiators, i really like how simple i can fire the gun, it uses 2 ailerons, one at the end of the tube magazine and one offset inside the width of an RCS ball. when you activate the action group, the one offset inside closes off the magazine and then the one at the end opens up and drops the ball into the chamber,

    @Jon144 what's the most powerful, compact prop you'v built with your dumpling bearings, and may i use them in a large build?
