After the release of Breaking Ground DLC, a new aircraft type is spreading all over KerbalX, and that aircraft type is a helicopter! SKDB engineers spent a lot of time to finally understand how to make one of them, and here’s our first model - the Crevette. Crevette is a light single-seater jet powered helicopter, with the maximum speed of more than 110 m/s! It was made as a competitor to other helicopters of similar sizes, such as BAK-121. And even though it may have some problems like flipping upside down while turning, it’s still very stable and fun to fly around.
.
To take off, you have to start the fuel cells first by pressing 1. Rotors are activated together with fuel cells, so you won’t suddenly run out of electricity and crash. Then you have to press 2 to set blade pitch. The helicopter will hover at about 80% rotor torque, which you can change with H and N. If you want to fly faster - a jet engine can be turned on and off by pressing 0. Then, when you are already flying fast enough, you can set blade pitch back to zero - this will decrease drag and make you fly even faster! The ladder can be deployed and retracted with 3.
.
At first, flying the helicopter may be a little tricky, but it’s really good when you finally understand how to do it. And don’t hit the tail, it’s fragile! Good luck!
