Mavnor Space Solutions proudly presents:

A stock subassembly called MSS’ Stock Science Plane mk.2 aka Flying Cigar. Built with 38 of the finest parts, its root part is noseConeAdapter.

Built in KSP version 1.3.1.

We’re going bigger in terms of taking measurements and experiments in Kerbin. This one has material’s bay, 3 goo’s containers, thermometer and barometer, you may build it without upgrading research lab. Basic TWR is 1.5 and it goes up to 2.21 with burned fuel. 24k d/v (22 minutes at full thrust, shall I mention you don’t need full thrust to fly?) gives you time to visit multiple biomes. When it comes to piloting, I believe this plane is even easier than mk.1, although being bigger and heavier. Care is advised when landing uphills (who does that, anyways? o_O) or you may lose the middle engine. The side ones are more than enough to fly some more tho, so no big harm would be done.
Inspired by Cupcake, Turbo Pumped and Star Wars.

Edit: just went to Kerbin desert and back to KSC, this drone is more than capable. Screenshots below, leaving GUI to show d/v left. Btw. this was my first succesful landing at Kerbin’s runway :D
