So I download the hi res mars. And had to rest the height above ground.

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

Added some crashed vessels:


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?

where is the link for the hi res Mars ? With brianj under the weather is there any one else who could do the EDL ?

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

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);

How on earth (mars) did you get that information?
