She 0loks to have an excellent radar cross section! Looks fast too! You may be able to have an open cockpit in this thing, with a seated kerbal inside!

You took "high-tech" and burnt it into this gorgeous drone.... :0.0:

It isn't a drone, the Kerbal inside the cockpit just can't see... yet!

No, it's an actual aircraft, with a cockpit, I just havn't finished it, this is pretty much a teaser, V2 will have the open cockpit for the Kerbal, and the later version will just polish it up, I have to watch some videos on my online pilots course first, so I won't get anything done tonight.

Alright, it's all up, tell me what you guys think! :D :cool:

Woohoo! She looks great!

 I love the cockpit, and the Kerbal seems to agree. :D It looks fun to fly too. Sometimes SAS stabilization is definitely required and just adds to the fun of flying it!

This thing is the least stable in flight aircraft I have ever built, and thanks! It's a lot of fun to fly, fixes since V2:

-nose tip no longer splits

-improved aerodynamics

-smoothed sides of fuselage more

-removed a strut

-fixed a landing gear problem (blocked a few things inside, and sometimes exploded when doing maneuvers and deploying gear (rare)

-slid rudder further into fuselage

I might just finish V3, and start work on V4 by tonight, we shall see.

V3 will have a revised cockpit (to look outside aesthetically like the real one) and then I will fix aerodynamics more, and that will be V3.

 

V4 will incorporate a dashboard for the cockpit, and an ejection seat.

Do you know any good camera tool mods that I could use to get a good look at the cockpit?

 

I just got "Camera Tools"

I'll see what I can do

V3 is here!

 

Ejection seat will be in V4, along with general smoothing, and aerodynamics improvements.

That will be later this week.
