You can launch both if you invite some crew members, or inow, your crew memebers can operate a fighter each with two bays.

As for just regular gameplay it's mostly an amount of available fighters, and if you loose one you can send out the next one while the first is printing out a new one.

Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

So for exploratio is best to strip weight and go with one bay

For that build, it's only a matter of 62ly vs 61...
Not exactly earthshattering.

pretty heavy build indeed. If you intend to use it outside the bubble, a good half of what you carry will most certainly not get used.

Well if you want do some canyon zooming.

It's a lot better smashing a fighter into the dirt than the conda.

Got it to 67 odd ly without touching too much on engineering, keeping only the two vehicle bays, and the xeno and manifest scanners

By swapping shields to 3D and removing all the boosters (just to have insurance against dodgy landings), you could downgrade the powerplant to a 4A, engineered for low emissions, which in turns makes it useless to equip heatsinks. Also, you can change the optionnal effect on your FSD from thermal spread to mass manager and get a very noticeable boost in jump range.

Just a few ideas :)

Why the xeno scanner?

It only works with thargs and they at a pretty much only in and around the bubble.

It's like bringing a kw scanner exploring.
