I decided to build a lesser known jet fighter from the 1950's, the Vought F7U Cutlass. The aircraft has space for one pilot and uses the stock (and maybe some DLC) parts.

These are the images of the current version.

Apparently, there was a comet flying by during this flight.

If I really did the accident because I landed perfectly and hit the statue
I actually got off when it was about to explode but I don't know what Jeb did that stopped the plane when it crashed

I can't wear the emblem, I don't know why

only use jet engines.

Do rapiers in rocket mode still count as jets?

Nevermind. I added some whiplash engines, but i'm still working on making it transition from vertical to horizontal.

It's too unreliable, nevermind.

Use jet engines while in the atmosphere, you can use liquif fuel engines when u escape the atmosphere

wait is this challenge dead?

That's ok, I don't think it was alive to begin with. :wink: As in, you didn't actually post a challenge - as defined for this forum.

How do we win this anyway?

Every challenge needs a way to win it or to judge if someone is the best, usually this is the shortest time to complete the challenge or the least components used, or even the lowest mass or least fuel consumed.

So make sure you decide in advance how players of your challenge will be scored, it saves confusion later on.

Child's play. 

 

I'll start us off with the plane that helped me get Thread of the Month for January 2020, Bill's Car.

Below are pictures of it in action.

  • Plane in the SPH

  • Dangerously hot cruising speed and altitude as it's circumnavigating Kerbin
    • Hey, Grarey, what are you doing in Bill's jet?

  • Less than 75 km away from the KSC, and on final approach

  • Perfect landing
    • Flying time: 53 minutes and 18 seconds

 

In case you're curious, here's the award-winning thread that the plane made its debut in. The challenge is over now, but feel free to ask me on DM if you want to restart it.

 

If you want to see any more planes, feel free to check out my KerbalX page.
