Description

A stock aircraft called Survey I. Built with 28 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark1Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.6.1.

This plane can be built with the first aviation node and no building upgrades. It is capable of circumnavigating Kerbin at least twice and performing any survey contracts, even those above 19km. For max cruising distance lock in surface prograde at ~10km to limit drag, it should hover between 10 and 12km. For surveys in the upper atmosphere accelerate above 600m/s at sea level. Once you enter the designated area gently pull up til your heading is 90°, even with full tanks the plane should still achieve an altitude over 20km.

Due to the large range of operating altitudes and speeds, authority of ailerons and the elevator can be adjusted to fine tune performance. For safe landing, deploy flaps and use throttle to control altitude.
