1.4.3 Craft File Update:
• Modified position of rear struts so Mk3 cargo ramp touches ground when main gear retracted
• Must’ve been a change in 1.4.2 related to the gear interaction with ground to cause it to sit a bit higher. Note: this had to be adjusted again for 1.4.3
• There is a documented bug that was introduced in one of the 1.4.x updates. It can be worked around for now, but hopefully it gets fixed in a future game update.

Mighty Duck is my personal favorite craft for reviving the activity of a certain old island base. I like to keep my most secretive new craft in the hangars out there; right next to those recovered UFO parts! I love to use the reverse thrusters (key
1) on both short runway (island base) and water landings! …and no, you don’t really need to fire those JATO rockets via staging (spacebar) on takeoff, but they can be a real blast!
1.4 Bug Alert! Mk3 Cargo Bay
I notice with some of my compatible rovers that have deployable arrays (solar or radiators) that the 1.4 update introduced a Mk3 Cargo Ramp bug that causes these parts to explode for no reason upon transitioning the ramp to exit. The bug has been reported in the Squad Bugtracker. https://bugs.kerbalspaceprogram.com/issues/18017 …and currently tagged as a low priority. Perhaps if more folks upvote the issue, Squad might elevate the priority. In the meantime, the Mk3 Cargo Ramp is going to be a rover transport hazard.

…cuz every amphibious plane just needs to have an amphibious rover!

Do you really want to downvote this?
Don't forget, people build craft at all skill levels, just 'cos something is 'newbish' doesn't mean it needs hatin'.
It will cost you 5 of your own points to downvote
