Only if you want to be perfect. For small lack of perfection, it is enough to let the exhaust start a bit behind the nozzle.

I can understand trying to be perfect for a 10m diameter engine, but for the small hovers, it would not be needed.

Those retro's don't look especially beefy, are they going to be enough to slow the ship at a reasonable rate when fully loaded?

You have a point but I can't fit bigger ones in the wing. I'll probably use 2 per side then.

I think it looks a bit too much like the Ravenstar. Would it be a big issue if the vertical stabilizers were put completely vertical for a cleaner look?

Yeah they're similar - both have angled verstabs and delta wings. That's about it. Also keep in mind that it's a member of family sharing proven concepts. And place it correctly in the context: it's Ravenstar's bigger brother/sister (whatever you prefer)

Also I think there is enough difference between them not to confuse them

Well, its your choice, but I think it would look better with the stabilizers pointing straight up. Are they used for any vertical lift?

I quite like the vertical stabilizers angled as they are.

Hey Loru, could you make a screenshot with the stabilizers angled outwards just to see how it looks?

I agree, I like the XR-2 style look, besides, I think it's a nice, natural evolution between XR-2, 3 and 5.
