Hagen von Tronje Posted September 18, 2015 Share Posted September 18, 2015 I don't understand what you mean by this, so please elaborate. You can change your CoM with your rover design, you can change how wide and long your wheelbase is. Both of those are irrelevant to the topic of this thread, which it's possible you haven't grasped yet. More and more, I'm of the opinion that this is the issue: people aren't doing the mental geometry with respect to what happens when you turn on a gradient. But, in any case, I'm quite certain you cannot change the manner in which SAS operates....you are aware that SAS can operate on engines with gimbal, on RCS, on wheels themselves, and anything else that generates force, right?SAS only has omnidirectional torque if you specifically gave it omnidirectional torque. If you give it directional controls, it will use those, and only those, because nothing else is available to it. I don't know what you mean by "manner in which it operates", but I can tell you SAS will not invent brand new magical forces to compensate for what you don't give it, so yes, you certainly can change the resultant behavior of SAS systems by designing a rover that only permits certain forces. It's really bizarre that you keep saying "everyone" agrees with how SAS works when it's not even clear that you understand the difference between SAS and a reaction wheel. I imagine you probably do, but you conflate terms regularly and aggressively and the entirety of what you've had to say has been built upon this extremely narrow understanding, so who can really tell?But I beg you, don't elaborate. I don't think I could hear "in case you haven't grasped it" one more time without gagging. That thing I said about being patronizing? Yeah. It's all I can stomach, I'm out.
