No Engine Challenge (Not A Glider Challenge) [CLOSED]

The objective of this challenge is to create an aircraft that flies with no engines in use. It must make it from the U.S.S. Beast or Yeager Airport to Wright Airport. It can be easy or slightly difficult to do.

Deadline is on Friday first week of Spetember. I've made adjustments.

If you're asking why, it's because i don't really have much time to do stuff next week, since i still have a periodical exam i have to study and take, since i'm still in highschool, not a graduate. (In which case i will have never created this challenge nor played the game due to how busy i'll be with my occupation)

This will also give opportunities for you to improve on your designs.

I'll upload a small hint tomorrow if it seems impossible.

What you'll get

1st place: Upvotes on all* planes + Follow
2nd place: Upvotes (5) + Follow
3rd place: Upvotes (3) + Follow
4th place: Upvotes (2)

(If you do not have the amount of planes to upvote you may create them and inform me to claim them. 5 days is all you have to claim them. There will also be a 3-day decision for winners based on concept or creativity.)

*Has a 10 plane max for prize

Rules:

1.You may have an engine, but it must not be powered.
2. You must not have a hidden functioning engine. If you do need it to run, let it have minimum power to the point where it cannot move the plane.
3.The creation must be a successor of this creation. Instructions below.
4.NO MODS. PLEASE.

How to make it a successor:

1.Locate the cockpit
2.Pull it out
3. You may now pull out all the blocks as a whole.
4.Build your craft.

(Though it is not required, if you want it to be seen easily, make it a successor)

System

You will be rated based on these criteria:
1. Smoothness of the flight
2. Stability
3. Engine efficiency - if it will stall easily or not
4. Design (also mechanism design - sleek or obvious)
5: Likeliness of self-combustion and destruction (the more the worse)
6.Expandability (how applicable your design is in other planes)

I will post my version of the plane for this challenge, and how i thought of this, and i will also show how i did it on a video on YouTube.

    The design was amazing. Although, you can't really stop the jet... and it can also explode randomly.

    I just love the look and design. I love how you also made the effect of the gun look like it was a jet engine.

    I like the design, but this can explode if attacked by guns. Also, it seems the design was similar to the base SP kicking fish, but the rocket motor holder design looks cool.

    It looks like a little desk toy! I love how well it worked, although altitude's a lot less predictable, and it doesn't like to roll.

    I like the design, and the concept, the look, and almost everything about it, except it really really likes to lose control if you're not careful.

    I like the name, and i get the ref., but maybe you should've tried attempting to hide wings inside. It'll stall when there's no power, and i blew up at least more than 4 times.

    @Watlel like wings that wabble like a bird with pistons or something like that.

    @MTBCrafter what do you mean by self built?

    3.9 years ago

    @robloxweponco you have to find your own way to create glitch propelled crafts, i can't tell you how to make glitch powered crafts, it'll defeat the purpose of this contest.

    Can i use a self built engine like a Ornithopter or something like that?

    @Watlel about glitch planes, how do you make one

    3.9 years ago

    @robloxweponco
    engine blocks can be used for cosmetic purposes or as the glitched part, but it must not provide thrust to the aircraft.

    @Watlel there is nothing in there about how engines can be used

    @robloxweponco
    1. Smoothness of the flight
    The motion of the motor - if it is smooth or rough and jerky

    1. Stability
      If it does not force the craft into a nose dive or any other position due to physics problems

    2. Engine efficiency - if it will stall easily or not

    3. Design (also mechanism design - sleek or obvious)

    5: Likeliness of self-combustion and destruction (the more the worse)

    6.Expandability (how applicable your design is in other planes)

    @Watlel the rules are too confusing

    @robloxweponco Just as long as it's not an engine, it's fine to be used, but idk what you're gonna use VTOL engines for
    You can use:
    Physics glitch exploits
    Weird impact force glitches with guns
    Rotator fans

    @Militarymaniac You can just make a launch mechanism, you do realize?

    I've built an ornithopter for this, but it needs to be spawned in the sky to work. Does this still count?
