What's the size of that ship (and what's it called-- and not on Steam I assume?) and how low can it go?  Do you think I should stick with the Argon Light Fighter ship since 1) it's prettier-- lots of nice colors on the control panel 2) more stable in flight (slightly....the Cerberus Vanguard is really good too, but looks like the stealth bomber with its blacks and dark greys lol) 3) it's smaller-- 1.5 km so it can go down to 750 meters rather than the other ship which is 3.5 km in size so it can't get lower than 1.75 km?  Although that's pretty low too, both are around or less than 1 mile or 5,000 feet or so in altitude!)
It's one of ettore-bilbo's ships, originally made for SE .9.8.0, but still seem to work in .9.9.0. (The one pictured may have been slightly modified by me.) It is listed as being 140m in length. You can find it and many others in his thread here — https://forum.spaceengine.org/viewtopic.php?t=65.

If there's no atmosphere, there's no drag to slow you down. There is a minimum altitude where you can maintain a stable orbit though. Varies with the system. You've never piloted a ship into orbit yet? After all this time? And you call yourself a space jockey... ;)
I go straight from warp drive to landing to flying around lol-- maybe I am in orbit and don't know it? I don't use the orb tab in the ship menu though....I use the Hor tab with those controls.  This ship has been staying level for days, perhaps I'm in orbit under 20km altitude?

Do I have to do anything special to go into orbit or can I do it using the Hor controls too?  How would I know when orbit is attained-- a stable altitude? Is there an auto setting for that lol?
Don't we have a Flight School thread for this? This is the Image Dump thread! ;)  Let me see if a I can put something together for you...

Wow those are beautiful!  Well to me orbit is the same thing as being able to fly around the planet for days without having to touch the controls at all (well, functionally they are the same thing lol.)

I don't seem to come across very many comets.  This is an old one...
