Latest steam version. I want to fix this

Ok :)

So, I did a quick test and the very same craft works fine in 1.4.3 but bounces like yours in 1.4.4. so it seems to be a bug in 1.4.4..

Anyway, you can work around the problem by:

-increase damper strength to 2
-reduce spring strength to 0.5
  or reduce it even more if is still bouncing

Also, I'll create a bug report ;)

How about some basic informations like your KSP version or something we should do now. Is this some kind of a bug report or do you want help to fix the problem? Since we are talking about KSP, I wouldn't even be surprised if you would ask for a way to make the gears even more bouncy so you can jump to the mun...

Not only had nobody fixed it I believe that no one has even tested it.

1.45 and my first aircraft is bouncing like an idiot at an idiot party.

It needs fixing and needs it now. I don't know how you can let a game go out in this state. It is beyond reason.

I am very, very disappointed in you guys.

Well, same for me. My plane is jumping and literally somersaults (probably because of it's center of lift) before exploding into tiny little pieces

I remedy this by strapping my plane to launch clamp and angle it at 5 degrees, fire up the engine, wait until it's on full thrust, and release the clamp

All my landers and planes are now lowriders.

What happeneds if you increase the spring strength and the dampers?

The gear is definitely buggy and shouldn't be bouncing like that. I didn't know if you could minimize it though by messing with the spring and damper settings.

I would say that's a lot of weight for the fixed gear. Those are for small aircraft....like a Cessna. Like one MK1 fuelselage section....not three, or three the Mark 0 ones not three of the Mark 1 ones....

With a craft that size you should be using the light retractable landing gear or bigger....
