I'd like to share with you my latest MOC, the
The "Dragonfly" is a surveillance and reconnaissance spacecraft used by the Free Planets Alliance Forces. It was developed by Experimental Design Bureau 51 "Yang" (location classified) and is produced by EL Facil Small Craft on El Facil and Anaheim Electronics on various locations.
The RS-41 is powered by a Mr. Fusion FR-009 nuclear fusion reactor and propelled by seven Korolev IE-7 ion engines for spaceflight and two General Engines JE55A4 jet engines for atmospheric operations. Although it is designed for atmospheric conditions, the RS-41 cannot enter planetary atmospheres by itself, but has to rely on other means of transportation.
When in full operational mode, the antenna mast is raised and the three dishes are aligned as needed. The two big main antennaes can point to almost any direction. On non-atmospheric conditions, as in space, on planetoids or moons etc., both mobile and stationary operation is possible, however on atmospheric conditions only stationary operation is possible.
The cockpit can detach from the main hull in emergencies or when the pilot/operator wants to return to a nearby supply base or ship.
When left by the operator, the RS-41 is controlled by an AI of classified abilities. However, autonomous operation of the RS-41 is only advised when it is stationed on any kind of celestial body (planets, moons, asteroids, etc.), in a stable orbit or at a Lagrangian Point.

Now with LDD4 file. Download it here: firefly.lxf
Had to make some adjustments on the engine, for LDD does not allow for certain connections, it seems.
Comments and critiques are very welcome.
