Description

My first amphibious stock prop! yaaay!
This was a bit of a nightmare to get out of the water, as it weighs almost 33 tons, but with a few Juno engines you can take off in no time!

Capable of both water and land landings, maximum speed of 45m/s ASL (without Junos)
Exceeding 60m/s while using junos for horizontal flight is REALLy not recommended, there is a high chance the propellers will start to act up.

If you are descending quickly, activate SAS for both props and don’ hit the water any faster than 27m/s if you can help it.

While taking off, make sure the props are trimmed to full power, and apply full throttle to the Junos as well. All you need to do then is just hold S until the aircraft jumps out of the water.

AG 2 Changes the blade pitch to something that is completely useless, so unless you want an ultra fine torque setting I’d advise not using it. You wont be able to maintain level flight.

A stock aircraft called PBY-5a Catalina. Built with 340 of the wettest parts, its root part is mk2Cockpit.Inline.

Built in the Shipyards in KSP version 1.3.1.
