Description This is a full stock 1:1 replica of the Scaled Composites Stratolaunch. Possessing the largest wingspan of any aircraft every flown, and having been designed as an air-launch platform for rockets, this beastly aircraft requires no other introduction. This build has the highest part count of any of my replicas to date, due largely to the *unique* shape of the fuselage. This craft was completed long before the MD-11, but seemingly inescapable technical difficulties plagued the craft from then on. It was only until many months later that I was able to finally diagnose the source
I think this is the right forum for this question, I've looked else where but have not found this answer. Does Kerbal allow horizontal launches from different altitudes on earth ? or just launch pads ? If not can I raise a launch pad to a 50,000 ft mountain side (though it would be stationary) ? I'm interested in the academic math and physics involved. Specifically how big (mass) a rocket would need to be to put a 3 kg payload in LEO. TY, Patrick
Hello there, I am trying to build a Stratolaunch vehicle similar to the one in the Matt Lowne's video below. I noticed that he's clipping some parts, specially the wings, in order to make it look better. My problem is that when I try to do the same, parts collide with each other during take off and the ship breaks apart. I tried using struts to tie some of the parts together but it doesnt help much, also, I didn's see any struts in the craft on the video. I would like to know if there is something I should be doing to avoid that problem. Thanks!
