A stock aircraft called Kronus 747-100
Finch. Built with 100 of the finest parts, its root part is fairingSize2.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.1.
- Type: SPH
- Class: aircraft
- Part Count: 100
- Pure Stock
After accidently ordering the KSC’s engineers to make aeroplane wings only 1/3 the required size for their 747-100, the KSC Big-Wigs decided that rather than just throwing them away, they would use them to build a 747-100 at 1/3 scale! Basically I decided to actually put the comically small aeroplane wings in this game to some good use. The result is an adorably tiny 747 that I think ended up being pretty good both functionally and aestheticaly. It was a fun way to burn 4 hours in any case. Make sure to control the craft from the HECS 2 probecore inside the fuselage.
-Rotation Speed: 45 m/s
-Cruising Altitude: 9000 m
-Max Speed at CRZ ALT: 295 m/s
-Stall Speed: 45 m/s
-I initially started building this craft to use .625m
Goliath replicas, which actually looked really good and absoutely adorable, but they turned out to be way too small unfortunately.
Images like the one below really make me wish I had a powerful enough computer to play this game with the maximum graphics settings all the time, instead of the minimum resolution and low render-quality I’m usually stuck with in a desperate yet futile attempt to stay above 1 fps. Let’s just say there’s a reason why my next large cargo SSTO is taking so long to develop.
Do you really want to downvote this?
Don't forget, people build craft at all skill levels, just 'cos something is 'newbish' doesn't mean it needs hatin'.
