    OHM SpaceX Mission Package (2016-present)

    Hi Kyle, thanks for the Starlink scenario, sorry to preempt you on Saocom1B! ;-) I had to see if I could get a rough idea of how the new polar launch profile works. Yep, will be a treat if both Falcon9's go tomorrow :) Cheers, Brian

    Question Launch trajectory, Tianwen-1 Chinese Mars Mission

    Hi Rodion :) JPL Horizons has a "provisional" trajectory (although with disclaimer regarding accuracy). It might be some help. Cheers, Brian

    Search ANY one has the file "Baikonour, LC1-pad5 for Soyuz v1.0? BADLY NEEDED!!

    Hi James, I have "", I'm not sure what version of Orbiter this is for, the .zip is dated 14 Aug 2016 but that might be when I last downloaded it. The .dll modules were made in 2007 so should be OK for Orbiter2006-P1. Download link...

    New Release Crew Dragon DM2

    Hi, I don't usually use UAP MFD but had a quick go with it just now. I can't find any way of setting UAP MFD "engine" parameter to recognise the +Z configuration of the Main Engine, so you'll need to make the burn manually or use different MFD. Cheers, Brian

    New Release Crew Dragon DM2

    Hi, I have never used "Soyuz/STS Guidance MFD" so I'm not sure how it will behave. As Donamy says, it is possible the retro direction of the Main engine is causing a problem. Or maybe because the Main engine is disabled when nose-cone is closed. I usually use "Align Planes MFD" and "Rendezvous...

    New Release Crew Dragon DM2

    Hi, you should open the nose-cone and use the Main engine (nose Dracos) for large dV orbit maneuvers. Use Translation RCS for small maneuvers/docking. Cheers, Brian

    New Release Crew Dragon DM2

    Hi there, That's not a glitch, it's a feature ;-) I think Donamy wanted the HUD there for docking camera purposes. You can turn off HUD with Ctrl+H iirc. I don't know of any cross-range data. Yes, from ISS orbit ~400km. Arbitrary angle to allow some room for maneuver. If I start making a...

    New Release Crew Dragon DM2

    Updated on OH: version 200722 Fixed the nose-dracos-not-disabled bug. If you don't want to download the whole add-on, the .zip below contains just the new dm2_capsule.dll. Unzip into Orbiter root folder and overwrite old .dll . Cheers, Brian

    Comet NEOWISE

    I'm very much enjoying seeing all the photos - thanks for sharing :) I had another good view night before last just before 1AM. At the same time I saw the ISS go right overhead, blazing bright gold, followed by a meteor! Top notch :thumbup:

    New Release Crew Dragon DM2

    Hi, thanks to all for the kind words, I hope it's fun to fly and dock with the ISS. The Abort function is disabled when Dragon is not attached to a launcher or pad - must have been something else! SuperDracos are defined as the "Hover" engine, the "Main" engine (retro nose Dracos) is disabled...
