RCS unwanted translation on rotation mode


Recommended Posts

Using RCS on rotation mode sometimes induces translation, which makes docking really hard.

It seems the thrust of each RCS thruster depends only on their position with respect to the center of gravity. The problem with this is you have to place thrusters exactly the at same distance from the centre of gravity for them not to give you unwanted translations. I think it would be nice if the thrust of each thruster was balanced to give you full translation or rotation instead. This way you could just place your rcs thrusters as far apart from each other as possible for maximum moment.
