I present my newest invention: Samson Mk 1.5!





Inspired by the Samson Sa-2 from James Camerson's Avatar, this little helicopter is a vehicle of choice for the scouting parties both on Kerbin and other planets. Initially designed as a search-and-rescue craft by KAEC, which also made a combat prototype also known as "Samson 0", the KSCRD team upgraded it for exoplanet missions. It can carry up to 4 passengers (seats can be swapped for cargo holds), its engines can be easily tweaked for a thinner atmosphere, has an infinite range with the help of its 2 RTG generators, and thanks to its ability to fold the rotor blades, it can fit in the MK3 cargo bay, making it easy to transport.


This craft has two modes: transit and lander (ACTION GROUP 5) Recommended engine speed for "lander" is 80%, for "transit" is 100%

HOWEVER: before you fly the helicopter, make sure you have pressed ACTION GROUP 3 in order to make it work. It is highly recomended that you fly with SAS on, and that you take caution when performing maneuvers.

(You need both expansions for this craft.)


I am open for suggestions on how to improve the craft. If you feel there is something I really need to fix, please comment below and I will update the craft ASAP


Known bugs:

*Sometimes, when the craft is landed on a building, the lander legs clip through them when loaded  FIXED

*When opening the engines, there is a chance that one of them will go rogue. Revert to start/quickload to fix this.

I don't know how to tackle the symmetry bug, whenever I place 2 servos, one of them stops responding to action groups!!


I guess you could place them and then remove symetry on one. Then work with them as separate things.
