    So whenever we make a craft even very small ones it always suprises me just how many thrusters we really need to give the damn thing some stability...

    I think thrusters should be way more powerfull.

    Perhaps a good balance would be that thrusters are more powerfull but are less fuel efficient when the give more and more power.
    This would create that placing more thrusters would make the vehicle more energy friendly, but more thrusters are not neccesarly needed to get a stable aircraft.

    That's an interesting idea

    interesting concept. Personally I'm super happy with where zero-G thrust capability is, and I'm pretty sure atmospheric thrusters are already far more powerful from a physics viewpoint than they should be. I can get a milliin kilos floating in the air with the equivalent of six 747 engines, which is a leeeeeettle silly.

    Have you tried the aerodynamics mod? That's a fairly efficient way to get lots of metal in the air quickly... I would love to see official support along those lines.

    I know right? I run a 4x thruster mod and it feels much better
