AirLift One is capable of transporting small craft for Land Drops or at Sea. After flight test the forward thrust engines were better off being an option, the craft file provided is going to have the Whiplash Engines rather then the Vector Engines, the Vector Engines will thrust the craft forward with a surprisingly quick jolt of speed giving the craft better handling, on the other hand the Whiplash Engines will give more flight time. With three Pilots, two Engineers, a Cargo Operations Chief and Passengers the total personnel is near 40. The Engine Room is much like other large Dropships I’ve built and the action is very sluggish also.

Engage SAS & RCS at liftoff with full throttle, spacebar will egnite lift engines, when desired pressing spacebar a second time will egnite rear engines to travel forward. Engines are set up to toggle group actions 1 & 2, do not kill the lift engines until a high enought speed is reached to maintain flight. When landing reduce throttle to half and increase as needed using the letter K for the downward RCS thrust to land gently. Note: All large craft that I have built require lots of patience but are challenging and fun.

A stock aircraft called AirLift One. Built with 766 of the finest parts, its root part is cupola.
