So what you're saying is that the parachutes are useless for abort procedures? I think maybe it was messed up somehow and it's issues slipped through the cracks during your testing. Shouldn't parachutes work at all altitudes? (Except maybe 3 feet from the ground...)

I'll check them again, when they interrupt worked well and I did not notice the problem ...

Should I be using FAR? Try deploying the parachute less than 5km. I'll reinstall and try again in the morning... 

Also I'd like to mention that the RO config doesn't resize the engines for Angara, and misses the RD-191 completely!

It will be time to test parachutes, it should work without FAR.
It is necessary to remove the RO folder, I gave it to Phineas Freak, I think it must be in the official development thread RO.

it looks good, but where shoud i put "r7 1st retro engines/boosters"? and rocket is always fliping when i trying to make gravity turn :(

I made a video about the rescue system, as you said, I picked up the ship at 5km and crew safely returned to the ground.

Find VAB folder, it contains a fully assembled version of the Soyuz and Progress, then you will understand everything. Most likely I will have to make another of my horrible video how to manage Rocket ... Although I do not think that everything is so sad because none of the reviewers complained about her behavior.

Well, the first version of the frigate is ready, it remains to configure the cfg.

Also preparing the launch pad for the R7. He is likely to be much easier than the original.

When doing some testing with the Soyuz, it seemed to have some weird aerodynamic issues when the parachutes deployed.

It is advisable to describe them, otherwise it is a black cat in a dark room at night.

@DECQ Any chance of a Soyuz-5/Feniks in the future? I like it's design quite a lot.

I have achievements Soyuz 5, the new version Federaziya (That I showed obsolete), but for the beginning it would be good to solve the problem with these two missiles, and then adding the other. :)

I will try to make a video and i will link it when i do.

The Launch doesn't go according to plan but the "Glitch" still happens.

You have the same rocket is falling on the fly? Try to install a plugin KerbalJointReinforcement by Ferram4, if it will help, I'll turn it into a mandatory.

 

P.S. Here is my video about the launch of Progress, with the plugin KJR rocket works very well.

But the parachute will be difficult to understand...

Did you design the capsule to have the same type of lift the real soyuz capsule has? The ability to turn so you either fall faster or slower?

@DECQ There seems to be some scaling issues with the engines in the Angara pack. The RO engines are a little small, and the RD 190s don't produce much thrust. I hope that will be fixed soon. Otherwise, Great mod!:wink:

I do not understand the question, it may be possible because of the autopilot as Soyuz capsule has a small mass displacement, if someone has more such issues are reported. I tried to make it as much as possible without errors... Although I and Dragon01 Soyuz works great.

I gave RO cfg "Phineas Freak", so I think it's worth waiting in the thread of RO, or use the Soviet Engines, they will approach 100%.

Something is... not right. I believe it's upper stage engine. (Testing without RO/RSS at stock Kerbin).

Angara-5 pre-biuilt craft is barely able to crawl to 100km LKO (assuming most fuel-efficient MJ profile was used and even that needed a correction for abysmal upper stage TWR). Also upper stage retrorockets are not potent enough to deorbit empty upper stage from LKO.

Angara-1 prebuilt craft is unable to orbit at all - can't reach decent AP with shallower profiles, not enough dV for steeper profiles. The case is BOTH stages have abysmal TWR. (No, I don't count RCS ports as viable engines for orbiting).

i use the angara 5 with the contares briz m upper stage like the real angara 5 uses and it works fine if you want any advice Dr.Jet

also DECQ the angara 1 is the 1.2 not 1.1, 1.1 would have had a briz km upper stage rather than the urm 2 but the 1.1 was replaces by the soyuz 2.1v

Angara lacks Breeze-M, it is in the development of so use a small stock upper stage, I have so many times deduced cargo into orbit.

Beautiful modeling work! However, the parachutes are useless. I have made several attempts to rectify the issue to no avail. I have rescaled everything to the same as Raidernicks and am attempting to port one of his parachutes, as both cause the capsule to spin uncontrollably before ripping off. I have read through everyone's comments and even watched the video a few times to no avail.

I am running KSP 1.1.3, I do NOT use FAR or RO. I absolute love DECQ work with his Energia rockets and these look just as beautiful. This is what I changed and have not encountered any problems thus far, from test launches to the upper atmosphere, to full reentry tests. Also, keep in mind I've rescaled to 0.80 in order to be compatible with Raidernick's Salyut stations.

Another notable feature is the offset COM, which allows the pod to generate lifting force during reentry (fly parachute-up for best results). This allows it a small degree of control over its landing zone.
