"Aratore" Heavy Agricultural VTOL [AG Challenge]

by   107k spefyjerbf (based on jlewisifer's AG Challenge!)  6 months ago

"Cultivation on a behemoth scale."

The Aratore is a common sight in any agricultural colony. It can plant seeds, distribute water, and distribute crop protection agents over any size field. Each of these functions are done in air, and therefore replace most manual work. Machines like the Aratore currently facilitate most large-scale farming operations.

This is a VTOL. Controls and tips are useful to read...

Controls:
- Activator 1: water hose online
Activator 2: Seed dispersement systems online.
- Activator 3: crop protection agent dispersement systems online.
- FireGuns: Activate dispersement systems.

Tips:
- About 37% throttle is best for hovering.
- Very low maneuverability in forward flight.
- other than that, standard controls!

    @ZephyrSystems Probably, I have developed two styles out of new Portum. The first uses intricate natural patterns, while the second is exemplified by this craft.
