    [0.21] TAC SAS Parts [24Jul]

    New from Thunder Aerospace Corporation!

    Smaller SAS parts!
    * Medium SAS module -- smaller version of the SAS flight computer, with no reaction wheel torque. For use with normal sized rockets and space planes.
    * Small SAS module -- probe-sized version of the SAS flight computer, with no reaction wheel torque. For use with small probes or satellites.
    * Small Reaction Wheel -- probe-sized version of the Reaction Wheels. Produces torque but does not contain the flight computer for holding an orientation. For use with small probes or satellites.





    Just some parts that I found useful after the SAS make-over of version 0.21. These make it easier for me to design small rockets and satellites that can benefit from the new stability control features.

    Note that the SAS parts add the flight computer that can hold an orientation. The reaction wheel parts only add torque that can be used by the SAS parts. Also, make sure that you add enough reaction wheel parts or RCS thrusters so that the flight computer has something to work with when trying to maintain an orientation.

    Good idea. Trying now.

    Nice work! Could you also make a large version of the reaction wheel? I am wondering why they do not come in all three sizes in the stock game...

    Yeah, considering all the other KSPX parts that made it into stock this round, the absence of the large SAS module and the mini SAS/ASAS modules is strange... but maybe they had CL wait on those since they were making changes to how they work, to avoid stepping on each other's toes. In that case they'll probably have them in the next version...

    A large reaction wheel would be nice too, since large rockets are where they would be needed most
