The cheap airplane of choice for surveys anywhere on Kerbin. Cruise at a 15 km altitude full throttle. Reduce throttle with altitude for maximum fuel economy.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.1.

The idea behind this design was to have the simplest, most efficient airplane capable of completing any survey contract on Kerbin. I tried to keep the weight, drag, part count, tech and cost to a minimum yet I made a complete trip around Kerbin from KSC runway to KSC runway with 25 / 150 fuel left. This is possible by using a high isp engine flying at high altitude. It cruises at over 500 m/s consuming only a tiny amount of fuel. Just attach some science instruments if needed and you’re good to go.
