Yes - but I might do it anyway.But this is just being too precise.
I like it too, so I left the "active" parafoil navigation function, but some time I have to try turning off the parafoil autopilot and chasing it down with Mr.Steven.The recovery of the fairings by the nets is so cool to watch
Hello, can anyone help me? I try to guide the falcon 9 in manual mode, but when I press the J key, it releases the load and not the first stage.
Can the first and second stage be separated in manual mode?
Thanks. Yes, in the add-on, the fairings have active guidance for the parafoil so it glides back to FRV. Not sure this is really what happens in real life! But as long as the RCS lasts until the fairing is down to about 20 or 30km alt. it should be OK. I'll take a look at the scenario anyway and check it out.On the Iridium-NEXT F4 mission.
The sats were headed to a 185 by 625 kilometer parking orbit inclined 86.66 degrees, and I made the first stage charred and expendable while the fairings were equipped with recovery hardware. Also, the F9 vehicle was in the Block 4 config.
Per its estimated position in the Launch Control Panel, the FRV was located at 26.359 N, 120.535 W and its heading was 90 degrees. I thought that the fairings would glide to the FRV while it stayed still.
Yes, making surface tiles is a bit more complex in Orbiter2016!I tried adding in myself, but then I remembered this is 2016... not 2010
Thanks, if anyone finds any good pics, do send me a link.BrianJ, it appears that the Crew Access Arm to support manned Crew Dragon launches has been installed on Pad 39A.The arm is meant to swing 180 degrees away from the spacecraft prior to prop loading.
