Description

This is my second try at making a rover. (refined and adjusted of course…) It has been a long time since this birdie has flown so don’t expect it to be a cakewalk. The staging of parchute deployment in a FAR environment will be decidedly nontrivial too. =\ This beastie HAS landed on Duna and can manage 24m/sec without falling apart. 30m/sec is a death sentence though. =( Keeping it powered is a rather, um, interesting problem. In an atmo environment it needs to park before using the solars. That is super annoying. =\

Somewhere in my collection I have a truss system that can make use of the nader docking port to mount two of these belly to belly in a towable configuration. Other than that, it’s basically a Winnebego complete with science lab. Built in the VAB in KSP version 0.24.0.
