Description

The Cyclone is the cargo lifter for Kosmodrome Aelita. It’s job is to deliver the Kosmodrome modules to the surface and haul up fuel. It has full VTOL capability even under heavy load and can be tuned to hover well with a broad range of payloads. It also has limited passenger capacity.

Note: The Cyclone is designed for Duna, and will not reach orbit under its own power from Kerbin. I flew it to orbit on the nose of the Wangari Maathai.

Controls:

Gear - Toggle gear and hover jet bays
1 - Toggle forward jets
2 - Toggle hover jets
5 - Toggle fuel cell (used for backup power)
8 - Control forward
9 - Control up

It is highly recommended to tune the hover jet thrust to line up with the centre of mass of each payload, but lazy pilots will be able to maintain attitude with the powerful RCS thrusters with which the Cyclone is equipped.

A stock aircraft called Cyclone. Built with 135 of the finest parts, its root part is adapterMk3-Size2.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.1.
