Yyyeeeeeaaahhhh this thing really isn't fun to look at, I know. I threw it together in a mad rush to cheese the sea delivery contract that I accepted WAY too early in the game, and got in so over my head that I didn't have enough money to cancel the contract. I had to quickly gain access to ALI just to be able to spawn this thing, and then design something cheap enough using small timer parts that will fit within the 8 meter height limit with enough lift to take a 5 ton connex container over 1700km. luckily the reward money was 15 times as much money as I had when I accepted the contract, so I didn't feel bad about leaving this thing dead in the water at the delivery location. Not sure what the normal capabilities of similar aircraft are, but this thing can go up to about 40km ASL and reach Mach 2 on descent.

    @IulianDan And that's why we call them features instead of bugs :)

    @HKAerodynamics I think there are some wonky wing physics somewhere. On one of my very early planes, which was just some basic solid motors and a bunch of wings, it sometimes started shaking wildly and gaining speed, but without actually breaking apart (And still being somewhat maneuverable). I got to mach 3 at not even 5km altitude, around the mountains. The effect was usually amplified when on 2x speed. Still, can't argue with the fact that it was useful for early speed contracts. ;).

    @IulianDan I honestly just cannot fathom why my prop aircraft keep cruising sub-orbit at mach 3. If this thing had a cockpit, everyone in it would be extra crispy after a single sortie. XD

    @HKAerodynamics Yes, the props miraculously survived every single time I launched it from the water. It's honestly been the only plane I've been using. Doing all the sample missions and sea deliveries. I just finished all the landmarks using this. It's goes surprisingly fast at around 30km, fast enough to worry about the wheels exploding from aerodynamic heating. My record is currently around 950m/s.

    @IulianDan You managed to get it out of the water without breaking the props? Well done! I made a VTOL capable carrier after this because this one can't handle helicopter based ground station deliveries.

    Thank you so much for this! It's honestly amazing how well it works.
    My biggest problem was the fact that I didn't have a runway big enough unlocked. But I did have the water spawn available. So i decided to strap on some removable boosters to get out of the water and it worked perfectly!
