Pouicpouic Posted June 2, 2022 Share Posted June 2, 2022 Circumnavigation of Ike done (no losses). Finally I was able to test the rover at high speeds (weird things can happen above 80m/s with these wheels). But there, no problem, acceptable emergency maneuvers, even if I still haven't tested it beyond 100m/s. --> I think I can seriously consider to reach >120m/s on vall with this craft. New overall top speed : 93,8m/s ! Spoiler A little review at this point : This rover has already covered about 9000km out of the 27000 minimum to finish the entire challenge. I used 5 of the 22 available wheel repairs. More than 70m/s on the ground on all the visited bodies (kerbin, minmus, mun, duna, ike) and 46m/s on the water. If I had to rate it (compared to dozens of rovers already tested), I would say 5/5 in robustness, 5/5 in maneuverability, 5/5 in versatility, 5/5 in cruising speed, 5/5 in high-speed stability (>80m/s), 4.5/5 in jump landing and 4/5 on the water. Next stop, either in the joolian system cause the hohmann transfer window is in a few months, or towards Dres... @Jack Joseph Kermani hope the total destruction will happen quickly ? ... so i won't have to go there... ok, i get it, you want to see me suffer too xD Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
