Solar Impulse 2 Challenge (Electric-only plane)

Recommended Posts

Travel the world in an electric plane!

The challenge is based off of the Solar Impulse 2 plane which traveled around the world without using any fuel. This is challenging you to do the same in KSP!

Basic Rules:

-Start at the KSC, go around Kerbin, and finish at KSC.

-Only use electricity to achieve this. (No fuel, not even Dawn propulsion, KAX is recommended)

-You can land on islands to recharge batteries.

-NO MODS BESIDES KAX (Kerbal Aircraft Expansion)

Advanced Rules:

-All basic rules apply.

-Make it around Kerbin in the fastest time possible, and/or with the most kerbals.

-If you do both time and number of kerbals, your time will be divided by the amount of kerbals you carry around in the trip.

Basic Completionists:


Advanced Completionists Scoreboard:


Record your progress by taking screenshots, or posting video of your work. A download link to the craft would be preferred. I really look forward to seeing what you guys can create!

You could use an electric propeller stock design for this

Yep! I'm hoping someone will try to, as I've tried making prop propellers before and they don't really work for me... I'm recording video right now of my entry, so far it's taken 1, 0:44:36 in KSP (1 day 44 minutes).
