Have your rovers never quite gotten where you wanted them quite fast enough? Or never could quite climb that hill? or even if you just fancied skydiving, this combination’s probably for you.
Without the rover the Nyangumi (Swahili for
whale) already makes for quite a versatile cargo helicopter. Though the rover itself can also be a lot of fun, allowing you to parachute it in, practically wherever you like, happily bumble around, or collect science (why not both?) and rendezvous with the (hopefully) landed helicopter for transport back again, though redocking will admittedly take quite some skill.
To parachute the rover:
4 to detach, then quickly press
] to switch to the rover.
5 will cut parachutes, and
6 will extend the aerials necessary to transmit that sweet science.
Avoid deploying below 200m as parachutes may not open fully
In general flight:
Helicopters are best flown with reference to the prograde vector over anything else, in terms of direction.
Prograde above level: climbing
Prograde below level: descending
Top speed is ~40 m/s in level flight
All action groups should be in the drop down menu
