    VTOL Craft

    After detaching the docking nodes both of the engines at the bottom of the craft have to be activated manually.
    Make sure Thrust is at ZERO when activating them or the force will be unbalanced.
    After activating the engines right click on the drone core directly behind the seat and click ‘control from here’
    The VTOL will fly without SAS but it is recommended.
