Watching a video on the landing. I heard them say it had 5 thrusters. 1 for landing. So I guess 4 thrusters for flight and 5th for landing. So 4 main and 1 hover.

So I may put the mesh put and if someone one wants to try to get it to fly have at it. Trying using VB.

AFAIR, its 4 throttlable engines used also for attitude control during propulsive phases. And one engine that is was added for orbit phase and for reducing the amount of dust impinging on the lander during final landing.

Thanks, I will add a 5th thruster to the mesh in Center and it had 8 thrusters for attitude.

But it isn't flying good for me so maybe someone can take a look using vb for help.

Hopefully someone can get it to fly right

Not sure. I guess it is just me doing it. I been working on the shuttle. But I posted the mesh for someone to try to get VB to get her to fly and land. Not sure if any has.

We should resume the development of the Chandrayaan-2 add-on to simulate both the partially successful Chandrayaan-2 and the planned Chandrayaan-3.
