Description

Like an arrow from a bow, the Arrow IIC cuts through the sky like a hot knife through butter. Some weaklings complain about rattling, noisiness and complaints of seizures among ground crew, but that can all be ignored when you’re cruising in the sky with a giant array of knives propelling you through the great blue at high speed.

A stock aircraft called Arrow IIC. Built with 100 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark1Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.12.5.

The Arrow IIC’s control system
Flaps and slats
Like the not entirely dissimilar Mitsubishi MU-2, the Arrow IIC uses very stubby wings, but with full-width flaps and slats, giving it a…serviceable minimum flight speed (AG 1 & 2 to extend, AG 3 to retract).
Spoilerons
Due to their extended-ness when on approach, trailing-edge flight control surfaces are ineffective. Therefore the Arrow IIC features spoilerons on the wings to control roll. This gives it adequate roll response at low speed and high AoA with the flaps down.
[b]Engines
Perhaps the most jarring feature of the aircraft are the engines. Use the throttle to control torque, and use I/K to control the propeller pitch.

How to fly the Arrow IIC

Because of the IIC’s…unusual configuration, it’s a bit of a pickle to fly.
Taking off
Increase engine power by increasing throttle. Afterward, use the I/K (translate up/down) keys to change the pitch of the propeller.
Reaching 70m/s, tap S until the nose slightly rises off the ground. Hold this angle until it lifts off by itself (due to it’s trailing edge flaps and leading-edge slats.
Landing
What’s that? Make sure to keep an angle equivalent to the horizon. Your speed should be around 80-90m/s with the flaps and slats down (AG 1 & 2). Speed is your friend; the faster you go, the less stressful your landing will be (Jeb would be proud).
