That's a standard Cargo Dragon. Crew Dragon AKA Dragon 2 doesn't have extensible solar arrays.

With the Earth rising in the background the Deep Space Transport (DST) is preparing for a year-long commissioning flight. A crew of four astronauts has arrived with an Orion capsule. They will use the chemical thrusters of the DST to leave lunar orbit. Later on they will switch to the ion thrusters and leave them on for nearly a year, to test their endurance for a Mars flight. The test flight will reach out a million kilometers away from Earth, relying on onboard systems alone.

Take a look at this beautiful picture of Io & Jupiter from the Delta glider IV Europa to Io rescue mission.

I (sometimes) can, but very carefully. The Spider LM is top-heavy in Orbiter, so the slightest bit of lateral velocity will cause tipping, so I hover and use translational RCS to null that out. Cutting the hover engine at probe-length will cause tipping to, so thrust is necessary all the way down (though in real life, this would of course not be optimal as the thrust would destructively backfire into the engine bell). Sometimes, you just have to fly down to the ground and use scenario editor to stop the LM's motion and put it firmly on the ground.

Testing the VTOL features from the Formation Autopilot Lua script.

Can't you hear the Wagner?

Time for MSS-10 to come home, after a 2 month mission.

Undocking, yesterday morning:


What a warm welcome!


Almost back from where we started


Wheels stop! Almost over-run the runway, but still happy with it.


This might have been the final MSS missions as I want to completely transition to Orbiter 2016, and not all add-ons are support yet. This missions brought back almost all experiments, with only one Soyuz and Dragon mission on the manifest to bring back the rest.
