Jet Engine Speed Challenge.

974 m/s, pretty sure I could have gotten a bit more out of it if I had managed my fuel a bit better.. took entirely too long to get up to cruise altitude.

I love how this thread is full of both monstrously huge and ingeniusly small solutions to the same problem. :) Kinda like seeing a Gee Bee amongst B52s.

yup. its kinda like this:

You can get into space in two ways.

One involves just going "To hell with you gravity, drag and the rest! I SHALL PIERCE THE HEAVE- ATMOSPHERE WITH MY MIGHTY DRIL- ROCKET!"

The other involves "Lets go sneakily through and then lets just escape with gravity barely noticing."

I look at it as Gork vs Mork, for anyone familiar with 40k, since this game is perfect for improvisational spaceship building. And kerbals might just be green enough to pass as orks :P

Before we had giant plane made almost just of engine with a cockpit and now we have little plane with a few engine!

Sploobi, this post is nearly a year old, and way outdated for the challenge. This was pre-intakes, so your entry is a moot point. There is another speed challenge on the forum somewhere, and they get up to about 2,330m/s.

Please don't necropost.
