I've had this idea floating around in my head for a little while now, and it's something I may try pretty soon. I want to see planes built as palindromes, that can be flown exactly the same forwards and in reverse. Ever hear of the "Push-me-pull-you" from Dr. Seuss's children books? Something like that, a plane that looks and performs exactly the same forwards and backwards. The rear of the plane should be an exact mirror image of the front. Mod and stock parts are all allowed. Let's see what you crazy Kerbaleers got!! And GO!! ::Edit:: I guess this wouldn't be any fun without some sort of challenge, so here we go. The Challenge!! Fly your palindrome plane to the island runway in forward mode and land. Once there, slam your plane into reverse flight mode, take off again, and land back at the KSC. Prizes for best plane include bragging rights and my respect. I myself am working on a plane to do just this, and will post screenshots as an example if I am successful. Here's a link to my successful flight. The forum is seeming to be picky and not letting me post the entire album from imgur... https://imgur.com/a/EIC30 If somebody knows the way to get imgur albums to post, reply below. I've also posted the craft on KerbalX: https://kerbalx.com/Speed_Kerman/Palindrome-Challenge-Plane
