Together with R4m0n I\'ve made things that not only rotate but also spin!
Plugin/general help by r4m0n
Models/textures by Damnyoujapan
Counter-rotating coaxial helicopter unit
Simple propeller engine in 1m and 0.5m, pushing and pulling.
Old-school rotary engine loosely based on the Clerget 9B.
VJ-101 inspired dualturbine unit
Basic wingswing mechanism
Basic tiltrotor mechanism
Avataresq ducted coaxial rotors
F-35/Yak-141 inspired engine hinge thing
Not only does these engines have rotating parts they are also air-breathing, flying the helicopter to the mun is therefor impossible.
Please note that the all non pushing engines use origin hacks to get past the engine deathray issue, this causes them to spawn offset from where you drop them in the VAB (should be either 12 or 15m below, so dropping them quite high up in the VAB is a good idea).
Thanks to my inside man (C7) engine damage can now be turned off, all pulling props now have a mass value with some logic behind it.
The swingwingmech has very thin moving colliders so placing stuff on it is a tad bid finicky in angle snap mode, normal attach works fine.
