Description

A stock aircraft called Housefly (Rocket Version). Built with 22 of the finest parts, its root part is mk1pod.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.0.

I wanted to see how feasible it is to build a very small plane with a rocket engine. And this is the result :)
It’s fun and easy to fly and land.

Take off and land at 40-60m/s.
Level flight only needs 1/3 throttle.

I also made a jet version of this.
This (the rocket) version wanders off slightly to the left on launch. I don’t know why. The jet version does not do that, although it’s basically the same plane. But you can pull up long before anything bad happens.

Range: enough to reach the island at full throttle, with a bit fuel left. Further if you fly a bit more economically.
Max speed: 230m/s
