Project Athena - KOS return to launch site video series


Recommended Posts


I recently had another series, 2mF, developing a KOS script to automatically fly, return and land boosters in KSP.

I decided to try that again, this time with less "empirically determined values" and with explaining my code. This should make the script fit to multiple different missions, not just this one specific rocket. I hope to be able to demonstrate New Shepard, Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy like missions. This also is an editing-learning-experience for me. So I hope the audio quality on the next video will be better, I am trying!

I want this to be a community-thing, so I am looking forward to your feedback, improvement suggestions and criticism!
