I've been neglecting my centaurs for too long. I have been aching to draw them again. Seeing the Endeavour gave me the inspirational boost. Getting it out of the way so I can focus on finishing that book!
They definitely need to carry a parachute and be able to eject the wings and engines in an emergency. Other than that they can cut power and glide or reverse engine to slow themselves down. Still thinking about and working on engine and fuselage design!
