Focus on AS350 and start engine [K], wait for warm-up ~60s (rotors go blurry when ready), then crank up the throttle.


Any good?

So I am not being able to lift the copter off. Is it attached to the flight deck?

I got in the copter and pressed K to start the rotors spinning. I waited and apply throttle. but no lift off. After a bit I got a CTD.

When you're on the ship you have to press K to turn on the flight deck. Kinda threw me at first.

Hi,
try following the steps in my post above.If it still doesn't work, exit scenario and post your (current state).scn and orbiter.log.


Yes, flight deck has an attachment point. It's passive until you switch it on [K] (don't want GoSearcher using CPU checking vessels/attachments/engines while you're in orbit, no point)


Cheers,
Brian

Ok I was able to get this to fly and its way cool. I guess I didn't see the go back to the ship and push the K key. Just some thoughts you might do a landing pad near the crew quarters and a dock for the barge and a carrier for the Falcon 9 1st stage to drive back to KSC, I think someone had done the Shuttle carrier which is what is being used. You would need a crane at the Port as well

Hey, if any of you dudes are interested... Alphonso (creator of axmpapermodels) has a really good paper model of the Dragon II.
Link here - http://axmpaperspacescalemodels.com/...3FYQ1Cb79vCB_I

Scroll down a bit amd over on the right you should see "Docking model", that'll be the one. If you print it 203.33% It'll equal 1:48 scale (as-is it's 1:100)

Looks like GoSearcher is a bit further back along the DM-1 reentry groundtrack than I guessed, at N30.69 W76.75 .

EXTRAORDINAIRE WORK

This mission DM-1 is very well restored and realizable reality.









Very good precision of the landing.































Thank you to all of you.

Wasn't an upper stage, it was a spacecraft called the Interim Control Module (ICM). The ICM was contracted and built by the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in case the Russian Service Module ("Zvezda") either was lost or ran into a very long development delay. It was to dock with the aft docking port on the FGB ("Zarya") and was to provide early attitude and orbit-changing capabilities, essentially duplicating the propulsive capabilities of the SM. Once the SM had been launched and docked successfully, the ICM was put into storage and forgotten about.

Dave S much thanks. It had been quite a while sense that time and I couldn't remember what it was called. I did see it once at JSC and was told that it was just unclassified and was used as a spinner to keep stable and that NASA was working to add a pressurisation system to retrofit the fuel tanks so it didn't have to spin. The truth is that it used the descent stage of a Lunar module and extra fuel was in tanks where the cargo was kept.
again thanks a bunch
