High Altitude Development & Experimental Systembus
Advanced Recon Drone
The Hades ARD-2 mk1 is the latest generation ARD from Nethereal Aerospace.
Purpose built to fly at the ceiling of air breathing engines, the aircraft employs numerous features to acheive world class performance in a compact, efficient, and well engineered package.
Advanced aerodynamics for optimal stability at supersonic and hypersonic speeds
Adjustable winglets to improve vehicle dynamics at all airspeeds
Adjustable airframe allowing engine bay to either extend lower for improved vehicle dynamics at low speeds/altitudes, or tuck into the airframe to optimize hypersonic velocities in excess of 1000 m/s.
Top speed: over 2100m/s @ 30km+ alt.
Operating ceiling: 35,000m
Slider 1 = Engine bay aerodynamic modes (Low = low speed, High = high mach speeds)
Slider 2 = Winglet aerodynamic modes (same as above)
Set both sliders to lowest values.
Throttle @ 50%
Set angle of ascent to 25 degrees
Release brakes and allow to passively climb to approx 15km.
Set sliders to high, and increase throttle as desired until desired speed/altitude are achieved
