Default Mars 2020 Rover and Mars Helicopter Scout

After the currently-ongoing development of the Curiosity rover, It's time to do another Mars rover that's going to launch in 2020. The addon could include the Mars Helicopter Scout.

Most of this has been done but not released yet. Since we know the landing site now I think the copter needs doing and we have talked about it.

It would be unique to simulate the Mars Helicopter Scout on Orbiter.

It didn't work on my old computer (due to the D3D9 client not being installed)

Yes. I am sure there are some differences between the 2 rovers. I haven't found any images of the scout mounted on it though. I suspect the landing gear folds up?

Also mentioned I might try to redo it so the hover thrust/lift controls the craft. Might be harder on this as the blades are all in the center. But they pitch,....
