Beamer Posted November 8, 2022 Share Posted November 8, 2022 My latest airplane design takes off for its inaugural flight. The Koffer Ku-134 (inspired by the designs of the Fokker 100 and Tupolev Tu-134, "koffer" is the Dutch word for "suitcase"). It has a total capacity of 100 kerbals and a max range of around 1800 km cruising at 4km and 200 m/s, enough to make the trip to the Desert Airstrip and back without the need for refueling. The main wing consists of the FAT wings with the Swept wings attached to the tip slightly rotated to form one whole. Some small wing segments are used for the inner back wing edge. The inner 2 elevons serve as flaps, the outer 2 as ailerons. It flies very well, responsive. I had no problem landing it at slow speeds and I managed to stop well before the taxi exit, or what passes for that on the Desert Airstrip. After they have visited the nearby pyramids I will fly back the assorted VIPs during daylight hours tomorrow (the ones that make it back anyway, the mountains can be harsh ). First I have the arrival of my Dres station expansion to deal with. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
