KCS-1A STOL

What's this? A bush plane with retractable landing gear?

But that's not all, for the KSC-1A also features twin engines and T tail for maximum long-range reliability and efficiency. Forward-swept wings enable excellent control at low speed whilst maintaining high-speed efficiency. All this is coupled with a suspension system that makes the hardest of landings seem softer than falling on a (very big) feather pillow. Whilst the pilot has excellent visibility with a full glass cabin, there are no windows for passengers, so it is more suited to carrying cargo (or people against their will).

Controls:
VTOL for flaps
everything else is normal

    I can’t find any aircraft with the same LG on your profile. Could you link me to it? @XjayIndustrys

    Takeoff can be a lot slower and shorter than that if you know what to do. I’ve done 50 before. This is mainly designed for rough, short runways and long flights rather than landing on mesas. Don’t worry, I’ll be making an ultra-light, ultraslow slow bush plane soon @XjayIndustrys

    *edit after test flight the LG was cool but the rest was average with an 80mph take off
