  1. nice altitude @camacju, new record! anyway we are talking about a non-ordinary assembly, with intersected floating parts attached in the vacuum. On Youtube I've seen a big ship assembled more less the same way using shields as propellers, capable of reaching hi-horizontal speed and the orbit. This is not my way of building rockets, but anyway interesting. For my test I've added an extra stage which let me to reach 120km eq orbit with an MK1-3 Pod. edit: I can't figure out what are those 3 for fin, kind of pins/pivots/screws, I know they have a specific name but can't remember at the moment, anyway I've never see them before.
  2. thank you for noticing, yes, you're right, I used the "set position" tool starting from 16k or so, in order to save time and batteries but forgetting to remove the "ease to ground". in fact, the max correct altitude with that test pod is only around 24k and even with the biggest rotors/blades the max is the 30k limit.
  3. Thanks all for the tips, I'll try with some other configurations. About the settings of the blades I only assign the "change angle" to the main throttle and I regulate them by small throttle adjustments depending on the altitude, not the speed, for example from 10km they need to be set up differently, with a lower angle. only for fun and to see what is the max reachable altitude I tried to push a small pod using low energy rotors and medium blades, it had reached 40k. Like @18Watt said, I noticed is almost impossible to pass the 18k limit with a useful payload.
  4. in fact. and btw I just tried to replace them with smaller fins and the rocket became really unstable. I just reduced the total mass from 50 to 30tons, using mk2 and smaller stages, even using only 2 ducted fans, but I always reach the same max altitude, around 18k. even in this video down below, which we all have already seen, he starts the fuel burn at 18k and by using smaller rotors/propellers. How did @Blaarkies reached 30k? 30k is a lot more and it will save a lot of fuel compared to 18k. So what is the max altitude reachable on eve with an electric engine system?
  5. I never tried it on kerbin, only from eve sea level. 30km is very high, I've never reached such altitude, even with the pod only on top of the propellers. How you did it? which electric engines and blades did you use? well, if the mass is the main problem I think I can maybe replace it with an mk2 pod and smaller fuel engines. I'm going to try to modify it in a lighter way. I'll try it but if with this rocket mass I can reach 18k only, if I add more mass won't it be worse? ok, I'll try to replace them with smaller ones. anyway I don't think it will change a lot regarding the max altitude reachable with the propellers.
  6. hi, I'm trying to assembly a rocket that is able to launch in eve orbit an Mk1-3 Pod. This prototype is currently able to reach an altitude of 18km with the electric engines, then a 90,90 orbit, even if with some difficulties. So, I'm looking for some tips to modify it in a more efficient way.

  12. are the Sepratrons not enough? about to show booster dry com , can't you just attach a light root probe core on it?
