Why does my plane Keep flipping in KSP?
That can happen if your landing gears aren’t all parallel to each other (and aligned in the general direction you want to go towards). If it’s a minor misalignment, it can cause some wobbling, but if it’s significant, the wheels will get dragged slightly sideways and the skidding could tear your craft apart.
How much space does an airplane take off?
A bigger airframe needs more space to get up to speed. Plus, more fuel, passengers, and cargo significantly impact performance on the runway. For these reasons, you can imagine that an Airbus A380 and Boeing 747 are out of the game right away. The Airbus A380 needs 3,000 m (9,800 ft) of runway to take off fully-loaded.
How do you release clamps in KSP?
- Throttle up to max.
- Spacebar for engine ignition and launch clamp release.
- Roll program if necessary.
What is the best jet engine in KSP?
The plane uses two R.A.P.I.E.R. engines and requires a large amount of fuel to lift the whole thing into the air. The R.A.P.I.E.R. engine is the best engine for most SSTO craft, due to the fact that it can switch between an air-breathing jet engine mode and closed-cycle rocket engine mode.
How do I throttle up in KSP?
The throttle can be controlled with the ⇧ Left Shift and ^ Left Ctrl keys, which will respectively increase and decrease the throttle. When in Intra-Vehicular Activity view, the throttle lever in the cockpit can also be used by clicking and dragging it with the mouse.
Can a plane flip backwards?
To fly upside down, you need a wing design that can still provide lift even when inverted. But wings on aerobatic planes are curved on both the upper and lower sides. With this symmetric design, the plane can fly either normally or inverted. The pilot can flip from one to the other by altering the angle of attack.
Can Planes flip over?
For all intents and purposes, a plane cannot be flipped upside-down, thrown into a tailspin, or otherwise flung from the sky by even the mightiest gust or air pocket. Conditions might be annoying and uncomfortable, but the plane is not going to crash.
