Woah, these things are brutal. Azimech, have you considered using a Kos script to automate all the hotkey stuff?

Thanks! I haven't learned kOS,  I think they're pretty easy to fly once you know them.

 

Any of you tried to transport some cargo yet?

What has Azimech done in the last few months?

  • Designed brand new high efficiency turboshaft engines
  • Released some of the coolest helicopters ever to grace KSP all in a single thread
  • Cool Screenshots
  • Download Links
  • Gained rep

What has Jon144 done in the last few months?

  • Post screenshots on light progress I made of abandoned projects I started prior to winter that are still not released.
  • Borderline necro-threading

Well that's disappointing. :/

Really good work though I am speechless. :o

Tried the filter yet?

Nope, i actually just downloaded them to see what the bearings were. I've been trying to make a stock chopper myself to no avail, and i needed some inspiration. These definitely helped, and don't worry- i read the manual :wink:

Not a Titan but putting it here anyway: the new & improved Azi15 Archon II. Completely rebuilt using the Asura II engine.

On the foreground the old one. Max speed has increased from 34m/s to 75m/s. Max range has increased from 48km to 173km! Improved control, has an autopilot as well.

News: It seems Kerbal Joint Reinforcement inhibits correct operation of turboshaft/turboprop engines. Please disable or the engine won't run fast enough for flight.

 

Engine angular speed at max power without KJR: 24 rad/s.

Engine angular speed at max power with KJR: 10 rad/s.

I'm happy to report my stock helicopters are functional using FAR in 1.2.2 with only minor modifications. Engine/rotor RPM needs to be higher but it seems fuel economy is much better. Forward flight speed is limited due to retreating blade stall, more than with NeoAero. The engine now benefits from a starter stage to get the turbine close to operating speed, a second stage then takes over and delivers most of the power.
