I seem to remember the XR5 being affectionately referred to in the past as a space whale or something like that. It's the inspiration for one of the 3 spacecraft ideas I've been tossing around in my head recently called the Orca. Going to need to get some sort of CFD package working before that one becomes a reality though.

Default A small flight for you, a milestone for this noob ;)

Nothing to write home about, but here are some pictures of my first close-encounter with Mars, flying the XR2.

Taught me a lot about TransX, much more than what I thought I had understood doing Earth-Moon runs.

Proper Mars landings are still a challenge though

Were the Delta-glider (stock, XR1, DGIV), XR2, and XR5 even simulated in CFD?
