A stock aircraft called Falcon Recovery Vehicle. Built with 192 of the finest parts, its root part is dockingPort2.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.1.


  • Type: SPH
  • Class: rover
  • Part Count: 192
  • Pure Stock

Action Groups:
stage - start fuel cells
gear - toggle boom leveling jacks
0 - undock boom and toggle 1st pair of boom actuators
9 - toggle 2nd pair of boom actuators
8 - toggle 3rd pair of boom actuators
7 - toggle truck height jacks
6 - toggle boom retraction actuator

Use AG 0 -> 9 -> 8 with pauses in between to raise the boom. With correct timing it will go all the way over but if it doesn’t then switch to the boom and use rcs to coax it the rest of the way. Carefully back the truck to the F9BV and get both ports to dock. This can be done by just driving the truck back but you can use rcs+leveling jacks to help if needed. With truck+boom jacks extended, all legs on the rocket should clear the ground and you may then use AG 5 to retract the legs. Use AG 6 -> 8 -> 9 -> 0 with pauses in between to bring the rocket+boom horizontal.
