Hooooo boy.

From Side of the Road Inc. I present to you a fairly close replica of a Do 335. It uses not one, but TWO stock propellers that turn in opposite ways, so when flying you will notice that the torque isn’t quite as bad as it is on single engine aircraft, however the rear engine is certainly more powerful and will continue to add some yaw torque.

Both engines are using a two speed prop that can be toggled with the first action group, and usage of the torque setting is practical up to approximately 45-50m/s where switching the engines to the speed settings yields a rather impressive top speed (for myself at least) of 88-89m/s.

The two props don’t appear to add as much speed as I’d hoped but the pulling power is insane, and can climb up to 2km incredibly fast for a replica/stock prop.

Dont pull up quickly while taking off, you will slam the rear prop into the ground. It is advised to take off with the rear prop in the speed setting because it wont flare out as much, but it is possible to use the torque setting IF YOU’RE CAREFUL. [ bracket moves control from rear to nose and ] bracket moves control from nose to rear (regarding engines + body)

The failure rate of the rear prop is almost 0%, where the failure rate for the forward prop is around 5%, if not less. It can survive a dive from 2k which will take it up to approximately 130m/s.

A stock aircraft called Do 335. Built with 300 of the finest parts, its root part is Mk1FuselageStructural.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.0.
