The PELICANT VTOL - Pure stock craft that can rotate the main wing to achieve vertical take off and landing, but also achieve efficient horizontal flight distance. It can make it to the western shore of the continent (through the mountains west of KSC) on half a tank of gas. It also carries it’s own fuel mining and processing plant for extended trips.
-Use Goliaths (AG1) and Panther (AG2) for vtol
-Use Panther Afterburners for additional control (AG3)
-Whiplashes can be used in VTOL but will flip you over, use with caution.
