Eve Rover Mission with a Shuttlecock inspired lander!

This stock 1.0.4 craft was used in my first career mode mission to explore Eve. At a cost of roughly 160k funds, this rover features a somewhat unique (i.e. unnecessarily complicated) system of air brakes, parachutes, and a heat shield to place a small rover on the surface, while also allowing for some science to be performed by bulky materials bays.

The craft in this download is a revised version made with some recommendations from the KSP forum, which raises deltaV by a little and also reduces cost by 30k funds from that used in my career mode play through.

The video linked below isn’t the career mode video, but rather a small rover tutorial i made using the rover/lander which gives a more in depth look at the craft itself as well as some of the tests performed on the rover, which is able to lose multiple wheels and jump off of stuff for fun and keep on roving!
