I've noticed that RCS behavior for Shuttle Ultra mimics the RCS for the real shuttle, meaning a pulse mode for RCS burns (as seen and heard [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4uZeeUWrU0"]YouTube- STS-125 Atlantis Hubble SM4 - Hubble Release [HD][/nomedia]). Can this feature be implemented for Shuttle Fleet also, maybe like a 3rd party addon of some kind, maybe with posibility of swtiching back to continuous mode when needed?

Also, can the feature described here be implemented too, maybe in the same addon?

It should be somehow possible writing a simple module, using the SetThrustLevel function or so (don't remember the exact name). That could also be used to simulate the forward RCS fuel limitations (allowing to dump it's fuel before re-entry. The killrot as described in the post may be possible. I'll take a look tomorrow.

Thanks, that would be great. Also, I think a killrot for translation is also implemented, but I'm not sure.

Any luck with that? :)

You can do that via IMFD's Vem (Velocity match mode) or Attitude MFD's Target relative mode.

Also, all RCS thrusters in Orbiter can be changed to a lower thrust setting (10%) via the shift key.

I'm not familiar with IMFD (yet), but thanks for the tips, I will try with Attitude MFD, it's been on my queue for some time.
Also, I think a lower thrust can be obtain via the CTRL key, not Shift :)
