Description

A stock aircraft called VB 10. Built with 127 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.

VB 10 is plane modeled after the French ww2 fighter plane https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arsenal_VB_10

Plane is powered by the two electric SAS engines driving two three-bladed contra-rotating propellers. Engines are placed inline to reduce the drag, one is located in front of the cockpit and the other one is behind it, similar to the real VB 10. In addition to reducing the drag this gives the plane really nice balance with the COM located right above the main wing. Thanks to this plane is very maneuverable and easy to fly.

Max speed at low altitude is 215 m/s and 200 m/s at 5000m. To get to the max speed you’ll need to manually tweak the authority limiter on the propeller blades from -70 to -80 for low altitude and to the -95 for high altitude.

To start:
- engage the brakes,
- press 0 to decouple the rotors,
- engage SAS on the plane,
- switch to the rotors, use Alt+E or Alt+Q to trim them all the way,
- switch back to the plane,
- disengage the brakes,
- plane will take off on its own at about 40 m/s,
- at about 80 m/s switch to the each of the propellers and press 1 to toggle the blade pitch.
