Airships have at least two engines, one on either side of the ship. It’s advisable that when customizing your ship that opposing engines are the same kind or at least the same power otherwise the ship will be spinning in circles! Choosing your engines is just as important as choosing other components for your ship.
Since airship movement is modeled after realistic physics, ships with side engines that are farther apart will naturally turn faster. Ships with an additional center engine will have a higher maximum velocity but not necessarily turn faster. There are many kinds of ships. Find a setup that fits your piloting style and then further customize by choosing engine types!
