  1. It is working for me on 1.5.1 I need to adjust the offered solution, but I never used it before so I don't know if it always was this way.

    Interplanetary from Minmus

    Following your advice now I have a pusher in LKO that I refuel with a spaceplane for a minimum cost. It is expensive in terms of fuel, because recovering the pusher cost around 1250 m/s, but with the spaceplane refuelling in LKo is easy. As a secondary benefit, with the pusher it is easy to push the ion probes and leave the long burn for when they are in solar orbit.
  3. In my case that usually means that I changed the planet selection and forgot to revert to Kerbin.

    Interplanetary from Minmus

    That's exactly the idea, but so far there is no way to depart directly from Minmus orbit to interplanetary :-(
  5. Hi all: I have frequently read that it is easier to depart from Minmus orbit, as you have most of the delta-V already, but I don't now how to plan it, as Mechjeb or any other tool that I know doesn't provide a solution. Thx.

    [1.4.5] Throttle Controlled Avionics

    Lol, have to improve my reading comprehension. When I talk about launching from the Mun, is a standard launch. I suppose there is a minimum, as in Kerbin, that I can't set an orbit below 80km

    [1.4.5] Throttle Controlled Avionics

    Hi @allista. First thing, thank you for a great autopilot. Now, the question: I am using the rendezvous autopilot and it ignores the max days field, finding solutions later. I was also a bit confused because there is no indication on when the launch will happen, but I already learned to check the countdown by the warp button to know it. Also, launching from the moon, I try to set the orbit at 10km at it changes it to 18.9. Thx.

    Orbital Darkness Time calculator

    Ampyear has a calculator https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/114991-141-ampyear-main-reserve-power-manager-v1520-16th-march-2018/ Also this remote tech helper https://ryohpops.github.io/kspRemoteTechPlanner/
  9. Is it possible that this mod is giving me Triple-Z Radio Astronomy Telescope contracts, even if i don't have that part? Thx.
  10. I still quite don't understand how it works, but what I do, for example for a circular equatorial orbit above Kerbin, is: Semi-major axis: 1600000 Argument of periapsis: Satellite A-0, Satellite B-120, Satellite C-240 The other five variables: 0
  11. Hi, @JPLRepo I am having to deal with some parts that are not supported by ampYear (LH2 cooling), and while calculating the necessary batteries is easy, I am having more trouble with power generation. Could a light-side transit period calculation be added? Thx in advance.
  12. It lets you target or jump to any object shown in the list.
  13. I have been issued this contract (by one of my 100+ mods. DMagic?). The only condition is: i had to install the part because I couldn't find it, so I suppose there must be a problem with the contract not recognizing it. Also, I tried 75 km and 100 km, beeing unsure of what orbit LKO is. Any help? Thx.
