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.

Features:
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)

Takeoff instructions:
Set both sliders to lowest values.
Throttle @ 50%
Brakes
Set angle of ascent to 25 degrees
Activate engines.
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

    So ive done some testing and was able to get the plane to around 2330m/s (over mach 6) and i think a combination of really high twr and very sleek aerodynamics is what makes the high speed possible, must say very impressive plane.

    How can you go at more than 2000m/s? The highest ive gotten with jet engines was like barely 1000m/s.
