Description

The TW1 (Tilt-wing v1) Kestrel is a VTOL spaceplane, built for use on low-gravity bodies with a focus on Duna. It was built as a way to move crew to and from the surface, in style.

To land, kill all horizontal velocity, undock wings from main craft, switch to them, and pivot them to the desired direction in order to descend. The craft does have some parachutes in case of emergency, but should be more than capable of landing on Duna without them. Fair warning, landing is very hard: you must be careful not to pop the hinge from its socket or it will not fly straight and you are guaranteed to crash.

No mods required, but having KER installed is highly recommended.

Built with 320 of the finest parts, its root part is mk2Cockpit.Standard.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.1.2.
