Hi, i want to make a ksp mod to simulate the proverse yaw effect caused by the bell-shaped lift distribution formulated by Prandlt. As a layman, i have no idea how to program and create a mod to do that, so, maybe i can get some help. The mod would be very simple, it would create trust at instead of drag when aileron is applied, and it could also have UI that allow you to switch on and off this effect and control its intensity. The bell lift distribution create this effect, as you aply aileron to generate more lift on the wingtip you also generates more trust, thus yawing in the same direction
I don't know why, there's something intriguing about an all-wing craft. So, here's the Boomerang. A (more or less, it's got a fuselage) flying wing. Easy to fly, and long ranged, it carries five kerbals- four passengers and a pilot. check it out here: https://kerbalx.com/lucho/Boomerang
This is my first formal project, so bear with me if it isn't perfect. Some background: I like the flying wing aircraft concept a lot, planes like the Ho 229 and the B2 bomber are some of the coolest flying machines. I don't understand all the advantages of the flying wing design as apposed to conventional fuselages or other alternatives. Another concept I really enjoy messing around with is the lifting bodies that NASA was experimenting with slightly before they came up with the space shuttle. Things like the Martin Marietta x-24 and the similar Scramjet Drones that are more modern a
The Boeing 797 is a whole new breed of airliners, flying wing airliners. Powered by 6 "Goliath" turbofans, the 797 is planned to replace most of the existing long-range, heavy capacity aircraft, such as the Airbus A380 and the aging Boeing 747s. Boeing is planning to try to convince airlines to replace their 747s, most of the older ones are the specific target, though. They have said they do not plan on completely replacing the old 747s. The new 797s have twice the capacity of their previous jumbo jets. The cockpit has more crew capacity, so therefore, safer operations. They were heavily inspi
