Description

A stock aircraft called Ko 335B Arrow. Built with 109 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 197.5 m/s at low level flight.

This is the updated version of the https://kerbalx.com/Rade/Ko-335A . I’ve replaced the engines with the new version of the SAS engine, which uses 1.25m fairing as a housing instead of the structural fuselage. As a result of this the engine is considerably simplified and at the same time rotor can spin much faster. As the result of this the max speed have increased from 162 m/s to 197.5 m/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 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 0 to decouple the rotors,
- engage SAS on the plane,
- switch to the rotors, ALT+E to trim them all the way to the right,
- switch back to the plane,
- disengage the brakes,
- takeoff at 45m/s,
- at about 60 m/s switch to the each propeller and press 1 to toggle the blade pitch.
