Mk-X Spaceplane Parts

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Forum user @benjee10 made these parts 3 years ago, and is unable to continue.  While I am not going to make parts for it (I will accept new part if submitted to me), I updated their configs and releasing it now.  original thread:  https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/148722-12-mk-x-spaceplane-parts-for-ksp-12-1875m-x-37b/

Mk-X Spaceplane Parts

The parts are 1.875m wide and the cargo bay has space for 1.25m probes/payloads. 

As usual, no pics = no interest, so here are some pics:

Includes four parts currently: drone core, RCS slice, cargo bay (in 1.2 only) (2 are stacked together here to make the X-37b) and an LFO tank. The integrated RCS currently only covers roll and pitch so you will need a few additional thrusters to fully balance it for docking.

 

Availability

I always liked this little mod.  Good to see it back.

Note that while there aren't wings here, I'm hoping to release the B9 Shuttle style wings in a few days, which will work nicely with this

Nice work. As other have said, great to have this available.

Cheers, and thanks again.

Very good. Will launch this on damon's Falcon 9 as soon as possible.

Isn't this a little big for its launch vehicles? I rescaled it to 50% and it fits perfectly inside TundraExploration's Falcon 9 fairings.

I guess this thing is closer to its real life scale... The real X-37 has a wingspan of 4.5m and was launched in a 5.4m diameter fairing... (The in game Falcon 9 fairing diameter is only 3.75m. )

n-no.

IRL Falcon 9 is 3.7m in diameter, so KSP scale its actually around 2.3m, so the Tundra Exploration Falcon has been rounded up to 2.5m

Any chance of a craft file? Looks real good. There's slight clipping of the front node of the cargo bay but not serious. Added some hinges to fold the wings in so it doesn't need an xbox huge fairing and it flies great!

I'll take a look at it.

Are you offering up a craft file?

Best way to provide craft files is on KerbalX.

Also, a stock only craft file would be useful for those people who don’t have the DLC

These craft have a really bad habit of rotating in the atmosphere

If you really looked at the video, you will see that the control surfaces are forcing the roll.  The left aileron down and the right aileron is up.  Of course it rolls
