Description

A stock aircraft called Ko 335. Built with 135 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.1.

Twin engine electric prop plane modeled after the Dornier Do 335, with the engines arranged in push-pull configuration, which allows for the max speed of 101 m/s at level flight.

Plane uses scaled down and improved engine from the https://kerbalx.com/Rade/Electric-Propfan which can spin at speeds of up to 49.5 rad/s without falling apart. Alto in this configuration with 3 blades in flight rotor will usually not spin faster than 45 rad/s.

Airplane can be a little bit tricky to fly. At the takeoff you have to be careful not to hit the runway with the tail rotor and in flight you have to look after the authority limiter for the blades on each rotor. Also try not to stall the plane, because it will go into flat spin from which it is almost impossible to recover.

To start:
- engage the brakes,
- press 1 to decouple the rotors,
- switch to the front rotor, hold Alt+E to trim all the way to the right,
- switch to the rear rotor, hold Alt+E to trim all the way to the right,
- switch back to the plane,
- disengage the brakes,
- takeoff at 45m/s.
