Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.1.

Note

Do not get excited too fast because the rotor is capable of shameful performance at best and the craft is not too maneuverable, but it flies ! The funny thing is the rotors are rotated 45 degrees from each other for aesthetic only because since they are part of the same craft they do not collide with each other in any way.
