Rare Freight engines, will it work entering atmosphere?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering, travel in and out of space using Freight engines, is it possible?
The warmup times for a Rare freight engine is 64 seconds (without talents .......). By the time the atmos engines are warmed up comming out of space,  you already crashed on the surface of the planet when entering the atmosphere :).

 

How can you buy enough time for the enigines to warmup when entering the atmosphere?

Traveling into space wouldn't be a problem, and into atmosphere isn't a problem as long as you enter at an angle so you can just glide while the engines warm up. I don't think atmospheric freight engines are worth using though. Basic or military are more useful, you can reduce atmo fuel consumption by flying at high altitude or just going into orbit. Space freight engines might be useful though because space fuel is heavy and more expensive, the warmup time might make it more difficult to get into space though.

The freight engines got my attention because of the Fuel consumption and the weight perk. The fuel weight is underestimated and the weight of the engines also count. I gonna try a combo of Maneuver engines together with freight engines (with M-tanks on a medium core hauler). Both engines save fuel, freight engine save some weight and a few maneuver take care of the warmup penalty on the freight engine. I think the thrust perk against the fuel intake consumption penalty on the Military engines is not worth it.
