  1. Hello everyone! I enjoy your interest in my previous craft Mi-26, so this community inspired me to create the second! Pretty small, stock and fun to play with! KSP 1.8 + BG 1.3 Specifications: No SAS, no reaction wheels and no RCS, only tiltable blades and several servos! Parts: 98 Crew: 1 or 2 kerbals. Possible to put up to 2 more seats, but it will nose dive almost everytime Mass: 1221 kg Main rotor diameter: 7.9 m (200 rpm) Lenght: 8 m Speed forward: 22-24 m/s Speed sideways: 17 m/s Climb rate: 5 m/s Flight time: up to 90 minutes Control groups: 1 - start/shutdown all systems. Throttle - main rotor pitch How to fly? I advise to use gamepad or some sort of controller to feel real cyctic control, but it possible to use keyboard. Set camera to locked behind tail, press 1, set throttle to 40 and wait 20 second. Then you can increase throttle, nice and easy, watching its positon, speed and forgeting about Z/X. As speed rises it will tends to climb and maybe roll left a bit. Once you reach medium speed it will feels like some sort of an airplane. Just watch a video below and you'll see. Have fun flying around! Craft file: https://kerbalx.com/IkranMakto/Bell-Helicopter
  2. KSP 1.7.2(Now 1.7.3) and TweakScale used. I've played this game more than 3 years and that helicopter and it's swashplate are my best work. Almost 6 month ago I created a helicopter with Infernal Robotics and huge internal swashplate, but it was difficult to fly because of incremental control and some freezes of the game. Breaking Grounds inspired new life in this old vehicle... EY-30 It's kind of a semi-copy of Mi-26 Parts: 180-186 Main rotor diameter - 25.8 m (8 blades) 110-140 rpm Tail rotor diameter - 6.3 m (6 blades) 160-220 rpm Total Length - 33 m Dry weight - 29.1 ton Max takeoff weight - 40 ton Max speed - 50 m/s Max altitude - 5000 m Fuel - 134, oxidizer - 164(3 tons) Power exchange: Fuel+oxidizer --> generating electric energy --> battery --> rotations Consumption - about 0.03/s Controls: 1 - start engines Throttle - angle of blades and motor speed of main and tail rotor Q-E roll W-S pitch A-D turn Recomended to use joystick! Changes: 15.07.2019 - main rotor limit 150 rpm - tail rotor 180-210 rpm - max payload 9 tons, possible to lift above 500 m - increased strength of axles due to changes in 1.7.3, so maybe bigger helicopter comes next. 05.09.2019 - 5-bladed tail rotor - Improved swachplate - 2 KAL group controlles for main and tail rotor separatly(inside cargo bay) - 3 tiny J-20 on main rotor axis for sound and air flow imitation. (Squad, why robotic parts and air surfaces are completely silent?) 1.7.3 Craft file
