Ferram Aerospace Research Mod using real-life physics to determine the aerodynamics realistic-looking rockets and planes will behave largely identical. This mod adds a custom aerodynamic model into KSP removing the stock mass-based drag model as well as the strange behavior shown by stock control surfaces.
- Mach Number Effects
- Wing Interactions
- Functional Payload Fairings and Cargo Bays
- Aerodynamic Failures
FAR Flight GUI:
Used to display important data like Mach number, air density, some more complicated info through the Flight Data window, and provide access to a few simple control systems to help with long-distance atmospheric flight. Air speed can also be modified through this to use other units or to read out something other than true airspeed. Comes with multiple help windows.
FAR Editor GUI:
Includes lots of helpful graphing and analysis tools to help tweak, diagnose and optimize your vehicle designs before / after flying them. Not necessary to design aircraft, but very helpful.
