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.

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,....

So I found a model to use for the rover. Free to use just no commercial use.


I need to animate and add some parts for the copter. Just going to make the wheel rotate, turn and mast move


and remade the scout:

Thanks. I got it. Converted to 3ds. But got some issues. In the conversion some of the textures got converted.



So I may need to retexture:( Also this dds didnot load.
