This is a concept study based on the presentation of Elon Musk in Adelaide on September 29, 2017. It contains the booster and the spaceship. Data on the BFR are scarce and sometimes contradicting. You could help me if you post data and flight experiences here.
The aerodynamic model is a biconic reentry vehicle. When fully pitched up it flies at an angle of attack of +30°. It is not very stable, don't go beyond 10x time acceleration while in atmosphere.
The 4 vacuum Raptors are the main engines of the spaceship, the 2 sea level Raptors are hover engines. For this tailsitter a landing MFD is recommended.
