  2. So ive been slaving away for the last 4 days, trying to crack ssto's. Progress has been pretty slow and im kinda limited in how many engines and parts i can use due to lag, but today i did manage to crack the 3k lko delta v mark, so thats deffo something. This particular ssto is ready to be reconfigured to accept a poodle engine for increased delta v in vacume, but the rapier thrust bug and incorrect delta v. indication with multiple engines in orbit prevent me from going for it right off the bat. Craft file: https://we.tl/t-cEXCRnC622 craft has 4 rapiers so expect rough fps. How to orbit: 1.takeoff is really rough so make sure to not stall or strike the wing. If having trouble can enable pitch control on ailerons for takeoff. 2.once off the ground, accelerate on the deck to about 850m/s and pitch up 10o (make sure to turn down the elevator authority once at speed, craft can rip it self apart when you pitch up at speed. 17o of authority works well) 3.Once at 1.1k m/s or 10k km, pitch up to 20o for the rest of the ascend. side note: Ive increased joint rigidity in my config files, so unsure of how that affects the plane. May need to add a few struts if youre running stock noodle mode.

  5. As the title implies, show us what electric aircraft you got. Whether they be pure stock, stock + DLC, or modded. I'm very interested to see what you all have. The only rule is that the end-stage (as in the plane itself) must run on pure electricity - no using Lf, Ox, Lf+Ox, or monopropellant for propulsion. If your plane is designed specifically for Duna/Eve/Laythe use, then your delivery rockets can use whatever is necessary to get it to its target (like on my E-38 Earhart and E-39 Earhart Junior). As long as the plane itself doesn't use up any chemicals to move, you should be good. Having those (or ore or xenon) on board the plane is okay if it's for balancing purposes. Just don't use up any to move the plane. Besides, fuel cells aren't exactly a reliable power source when it comes to battery-powered plane propulsion. And xenon is too weak to move anything outside of a vacuum. Being able to carry passengers and cargo are awesome bonuses, but not required. I'll start this thread with my own entry. The E-40 Impulse on display in the SPH It has "PLANE ONLY" in the name since I have plans to take it to Laythe later. In the meantime, I would have to test its capabilities here on Kerbin Its cargo bay is loaded with science station equipment, EVA kits, and repair kits Although I personally don't really know how to operate the science stations. I just placed them close together and hit "Interact." Here's a funny little blooper: Jeb hitting the "Reverse Thrust" button by mistake. At least he remembered to turn the nav lights on (this time). As soon as Jeb was airborne, he turned west in order to maximize the plane's exposure to sunlight If he flew east, he would inevitably enter a dark zone and lose electric charge Nice shot of the E-40 flying over the desert. This was taken before I installed nav lights and rear robot arms in the current prototype. Jeb looking at Engine One from the cockpit, as well as the mountains to the south. Engines are numbered starting with the furthest left (looking forward from the cockpit). 100 km away from the KSC, and the mountains to the west of it are in sight. Under Engine 1, you can barely see the abandoned island airfield. 1 km ASL and ~8 km away from the runway. 5 HOURS, 11 MINUTES, 30 SECONDS Since I was flying faster than the planet's rotation about its axis, I launched mid-late afternoon so I wouldn't outrun the sunny spot and therefore lose a constant power source. E-40 Test Run Performance Stats Crew Capacity 1 pilot + 2 passengers Power Plant (2 x EM-64S) x (4 x R-25) Total Empty Cargo Capacity 12 (all loaded) Cruising Altitude 7 km Cruising Surface Velocity 200 m/s Minimum Throttle Required 2/3 Blade Angle 38 degrees (45 is optimal) Optimum Takeoff Time Westward Flight Mid-late afternoon Eastward Flight Early in the morning (NOT recommended for long flights) But I did not stop there: Craft file: https://kerbalx.com/Mars-Bound_Hokie/E-40-Impulse-PLANE-ONLY What do you think? Show us what you've got.
  6. How can i breake in KSP? putting breakes on 200% didnt work.
  7. Features Speed control Maintain altitude Maintain heading Maintain climbrate Autonomous takeoff Autonomous landing Fly a pre-programmed route Fly to a pre-programmed waypoint Also works in FAR What it is This is a project I've been working on forever. Programming an atmospheric autopilot can be very, very hard, but I've came up with an acceptable result, at least in my eyes, and wanted to let you guys be able to check it out! There is much to be optimized which I will do in the future as well as add new features, but for now, the results were quite good in my opinion, which is why I'm releasing it now. Installation Install kOS https://github.com/KSP-KOS/KOS/releases Download the script https://spacedock.info/mod/2346/KK's Airplane Autopilot Put all the files inside your KSP Main/Ships/Script folder How to use Attach a kOS unit to your aircraft If your craft has thrust reversers, put them on action group 4 Launch the craft Open the kOS terminal Enter the following: switch to 0. run auto307. Once the gui is built, you can hop into the settings menu and adjust all your parameters there. For some more detailed information, you can also hop into the script, I've added some comments there explaining the different variables, but it should be pretty much self-explanatory. You can also choose to add a new "airplane" to the database, simply copy an existing one (do not copy the last aircraft, copy one of the first) and adjust the parameters. Enjoy! To create new waypoints, simply copy an existing one (best if you copy the first one), give it a new name and enter it's latlng position. You can do this two ways: log the current geoposition of your craft to a file and then copy the logged coordinates into the waypoint OR enter the coordinates from the cheat menu "Set position". The same procedure for navigation / flyroute mode. Copy an existing one, add the waypoints and end with a runway. This script could be extremely handy for career mode where you have to fly to certain waypoints, gather some data etc. Now you can just enter the heading you need to fly to, select the speed and altitude and lean back! Bus / Known issues: You might see some severe wobble / oscillation of the craft shortly after you activate a mode for the first time. The script will automatically try to reduce the oscillation but this might take a few seconds. If the oscillation is really bad, try to reduce control authority on the rudders in the beginning and steadily increase it. Some more action: @Mods, I hope this is considered to be an Addon and thus is in the right subforum!
  8. I just unlocked aviation but my first attempt at a plane went off the runway then crashed into the ground. I was wondering if anyone could give me a detailed guide/instructions on how to build a good plane out of only parts from the aviation node.
  9. SilverWolf Aerospace is reopening its doors! After mulling it over for some time, I have decided to re-release this project. So, what is it? It is a humble collection of things I have wanted over the years. A more attractive, familiar cockpit for airliners and small freighters. Something a little more iconic when economy gives way for haste, and something completely new for exceeding the boundaries of sanity and atmosphere. I've also paid attention to the back of the plane, too, adding tail connectors I have longed for. Auxilliary power units included. Finally, I have a bad habit for mounting my wings low; so wing boxes of varying lengths with various cockpit and tail adapters have been thrown it; because an aircraft just looks better when it's streamlined. What's next, I have no idea. Download: https://kerbal.curseforge.com/projects/silverwolf-aerospace As a friendly reminder, All Rights Reserved.
  10. so, i bought ksp about a month or two ago, i played around 10 hours and i have not been really successful, all my attempts at building a plane so far have failed, mostly because none of my planes are able to turn and about half of them aren't even able to keep flying for very long and really struggle at gaining lift, whenever i try to turn with my planes they mostly just turn sideways and crash in the water shortly after, i have absolutely no idea what the hell i'm even doing tbh also, sometimes my plane starts to wobble a lot just as i go to the runway here's some footage of my current design
  11. Hello everyone, where is this cabin from mod?
  12. landplane is easy and all, so i decided to create a seaplane no problem when i take off, but when i land, its always flippin' over JUST HOW TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM HUH, I AINT GOT ANY SOLUTIONS, HELP PLZ p.s: my plane is a flying boat, not a floatplane if u dont know how it looks like, then here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Is7b3viQ6OByeOriPwZWwUJYi8b2hQkS?usp=sharing the craft file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KFoP-Msb2Ie8YClnOlUTvfoBOQFXNNxN/view?usp=sharing
  13. Throughout the forums, everyone shows the big, bulky, expensive and sophisticated craft with incredible range, efficiency, speed or size. but kerbin needs a domestic cargo service too, something mass-producible, able to reach remote landing sites and transport the cargo distributed across kerbin. YOUR GOAL: A Reliable, Unique, Long Range and Durable Craft to carry mid size cargo (multiple 2.5 service bays worth) Anywhere On Kerbin (or Laythe ). dlc and part mods not allowed (for fairness). kraken drives are ok. my attempt - bluebird 2 seaplane [min speed - 40m/s, cruising speed200m/s, sea or land landings] bluebird 2 file
  14. The Kerbal Air Force Rearmament Challenge CHALLENGE SUSPENDED The Kerbal Airforce is in dire straits (not the band, although they are amazing).

  15. Fuselage (DMF) Adds seven (7) stock-a-like flat fuselage parts. These parts are rectangular fuselage pieces meant to be radially attached. By zer0Kerbal, originally by @DaMichel, and then by @Bezzier View full album Forward by @Bezzier Contains seven (7) stock-a-like flat fuselage parts tank [normal, long] air inlet terminal piece flat to 1.25m adapter radially attached tail boom slanted cone Cabin Notes by @DaMichel Usage of FerramAerospaceResearch is strongly recommended. The parts have some values for stock aerodynamic parameters but i have no idea if they are reasonable nor will i take the time to balance for stock. In contrast, FAR figures this stuff out automagically.

  16. I tried sort of making a f-14 and here it is what it looks like what is causing the low manueveerablity?
  17. my spaceplane is constantly going retrograde if it is above 60m/s making it impossible to take off the mass center is in front of the lift center solved the mass center should be behind the lift center
  18. so im wanting to make a non KAL spaceplane but that means that i should not use fuel consuming "S3 Vector" engines. and that makes the speed of the plane not enough to achieve aerodynamic stability(the combination of forces that make missiles turn prograde and reentry pods retrograde) how can i fly without aerodynamic stability?
  19. Hi everyone, Build a prop-plane (coaxial) for Eve. Tested in flight at Kerbin, everything worked smoothly and stable there. After landing on Eve, the plane seems to have torque along the longitudinal axis, like from the rotors. But no parts were destroyed during entry and landing. I can cancel the torque by having different rpm for my two rotors. While testing on Kerbin, there was no torque. Edit: I found that, with lower torque(33%), the rpm of one of the rotors is not at maximum and is decreasing with higher blade angle. So I can fly stable, when I limit the rpm and have the rpm of the rotors at a certain ratio while also limiting the blade angle... but all that was not present at Kerbin. I'm certain it has something to do with altitude or atmospheric pressure, since stability varies at certain altitudes. Can anybody make sense of this or is it just bugged?
  20. Anyone has ideas for planes in BDA? I'm kind of bored.. Here "are" the thing(s) that I already made: 1 single biplane Hope you could help, thanks in advanced!
  21. KSP Version: 1.8.1 Craft Download: A-10 Warthog I tried to make the A-10 as realistically as I could, and I think it turned out pretty well. Some issues: The shading on the two engine nacelles break a lot, but that's just visual, and it may be a problem with some other mods I have, or with my version of PRE.

  22. Similar to the "What is your favorite rocket" thread, just about your favorite aircraft. Mine are the Boeing 777 and 747, the Antonov AN-72 and AN-225, F-14 Tomcat, and, of course, the Sikorsky Skycrane ( I believe it is the S-64). I couldn't narrow it down to just one, you don't have to either (Just try and keep it under 10 aircraft)
  23. Hello! I am using the Thrustmaster T.Flight Stick X and I want to battle with it! I can fly but I want to fire guns/missiles (BDArmory) But I do not know how to set a button on the joysick to do that! Well I do but not how to set it to LMB(fire)! Thanks in advance! (KSP 1.9.0)
  24. Welcome to the KSP Original Design Competition, brought to you by @Servo and @HB Stratos! The Idea Servo came up with a challenge for his own to build an original design for each jet fighter generation. I was inspired by this and in collaboration with Servo we made background information/guoverment contract for each jet plane generation. The Contracts 1. Generation 2. Generation 3. Generation 4. Generation 4.5. Generation 5. Generation 6. Generation Transport Aircraft form various times Few rules Part clipping is allowed Craft File Editing is allowed Stock craft only No Making History Expansion How to win I can´t really say there will be a definite winner, but I will probably make a video on my YouTube channel featuring the 3-5 best aircrafts of each generation. How to submit your Planes You are allowed to submit as may planes as you want, but just one is also fine Template for submitting stuff, coupy this and replace with content to contribute.

  25. I worked on a series of airplanes, that are capable of landing on water with their hull. But they should also look cool and resemble real Flying Boats as much as possible. Here are some of my results. Some designs had trouble with lifting of the water. I found that the alignment of the thrust vector is critical and that not all parts survive the impact into the water Most of this planes can be landed on the sea just like on the runway with a normal speed, only the smallest 'Boatplane S' flips when I don't slow down enough. What do you think? Have you done similar crafts? Boatplane XL Boatplane L Boatplane M Boatplane S
