# VesselMars 2020 Rover and Mars Helicopter Scout

#### gattispilot

Thanks. Here is the copter code and mesh,....

So one issue is when I apply hover the copter sinks to below the surface and then takes off.

#### gattispilot

Here it is landed. I might need some sort of brake to keep in form moving.

So when I restart it the copter jumps high and lands

#### gattispilot

Here is a test scn and files:

So on the rover Ctrl +space opens the dialogue to move the head,......

+/- keypad move it. 1/3 change heading 4/6 keypad change wheel rotation so you can move sideways,......

Copter using basic flight control. K get the rotors to spin

#### gattispilot

but I can not get the copter to do right.

I tried a VB version and the copter just kept going up with no thrust applied.

Maybe because it is too light?

Well someone do make the scout flyable

Can you check the forces in Orbiter? Maybe you have something unaccounted for.

Here she is. I had to reset the ouchdowndown so she is above the terrain

When I was helping to bring AMSO for Orbiter 2016 I noticed a problem to set vessels properly landed on a surface and there appears to be undocumented feature in the Orbiter that's critical. Value "10" must be passed to "arot.x"

C++:
VESSELSTATUS2 vs;
memset(&vs, 0, sizeof(vs));
vs.version = 2;
vs.rbody = hMars;
vs.status = 1;             // Landed
vs.arot.x = 10;            // <----- Undocumented feature "command code" to land on touchdown points !! IMPORTANT !!
vs.surf_lng = 1.234;
vs.surf_lat = 1.234;
vs.surf_hdg = 0.0;
hVessel->DefSetStateEx(&vs);
