  • Type: SPH
  • Class: rover
  • Part Count: 64
  • Mods: 7

  • KSP version: 1.0.5

Critical Mods

  • Infernal Robotics
  • Procedural Parts
  • TweakScale

Optional Mods

  • B9 — used only for the RCS thrusters and info drive–it should work find if you don’t have it, just be sure to add your own RCS. (They are placed on the linear rails).
  • RealChute — the placement on the chute is directly above the CoM: behind the seating on the edge of the Materials Bay.

Not Required

  • Ferram Aerospace — not sure why this is showing up as a mod, there are no aerodynamic surfaces here.


3.4t 2-kerbal all-science rover made for MkII Cargo Bays!

Ion-powered full-science rover using Infernal Robotics joints and ProceduralParts fuel tanks. When compact, it fits exactly into 1.5 MkII cargo bays. It’s quite stable (in the gfycat I started turning before the craft had fully landed and accidentally turned off SAS instead of RCS)

My Infernal Robotics had a weird symmetry bug, so test the joints in-field and not in the SPH. Always launch the craft with the wheels in their retracted position. If you decide to edit this craft, setting all the joints to their Default position should make it appear deployed.

Some assembly required. Spaceplane sold separately. No warranty included.
