Is it about the 186P7H2V0 spaceship. I see there are a variant if you change the "ship´s legs" left to righ, and righ to left. Just that. Regards!
Though doing this does create a different spaceship, this was already known. The form on the wiki minimizes the bounding box.

I suspect that all of the three-glider collisions with four degrees of freedom have been investigated.
