Hopeful 1, and more…
This is pretty much a photo dump from my latest KSP efforts.
I started off doing some more rovering.
It appears that there’s Tundra near the shore occasionally!
I also flew some more flights:
And designed and built a 3t payload orbiter, the Hopeful 1.
I sent a couple of probes off into the unknown… they might yet be destined for greater things (fingers crossed) like Duna visits, depending on how well I fly them, although one will probably be landed on the Mun. The first didn’t have any science equipment, though, so it’s a bit of an experiment.
I learnt how to do intercepts, and recovered Oblas Kerman from a low Kerbin orbit:
And did some more tourists flights in my bulk kerbal carrier, although I’m also using it for crew training:
To break things up a bit, I did some more flights in my trusty basic ‘plane…
… and some more in my not-so-trusty Lifter 1.
It has an unfortunate tendency to get stuck in a flat spin, especially at high altitudes and high airspeeds. Which means I have to abort and use the parachutes (they are there for a reason!). Least it doesn’t fall apart, though, like some earlier attempts…
