Description

The Stearman (Boeing) Model 75 is a biplane used as a military trainer aircraft, of which at least 10,626 were built in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s. Stearman Aircraft became a subsidiary of Boeing in 1934. Widely known as the Stearman, Boeing Stearman or Kaydet, it served as a primary trainer for the United States Army Air Forces, the United States Navy (as the NS & N2S), and with the Royal Canadian Air Force as the Kaydet throughout World War II. After the conflict was over, thousands of surplus aircraft were sold on the civilian market. In the immediate postwar years they became popular as crop dusters, sports planes, and for aerobatic and wing walking use in air shows. (Wikipedia)

Flight Characteristics

This aircraft likes to yaw to the left slightly on the runway, but not much. It takes off at about 30m/s. Don’t pitch back too hard, or you’ll hit the rudder on the ground. Once in the air, It performs well, with a top speed of a slightly unrealistic 180m/s. Maneuverability is excellent, with a maximum force of 20Gs.

Note: You have to manually load kerbals unless you have that mod thing
