I… need… better… avionics…
As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been flying Jeb around in a plane, taking samples.
My plane is fun to fly; really stable (although it does gently nose-down without SAS), and fast. It’s ceiling is around 12000m, sadly, since I’d like to fly it up to higher altitudes to help me make temperature measurements! I can even time warp to 4x and leave it, safe in the knowledge that it’ll be fine… provided I don’t fly it into a mountain.
I’d like to make it able to fly higher; for that I think I’ll need to add extensions to the wings.
It’s proved invaluable so far, with several science-gathering expeditions, and a few just for fun. Also, I used it as a rover to trundle over to a ‘zone’, which was tiny – I’m not sure how I would have ever managed to land a rocket on it! I still don’t know how I’m going to get the other ones…
