The Stealth Cruiser

Features a Cockpit, Interior rooms including bedroom, bathroom and docking tunnels.

Super smooth controls

No need for heading lock, its that balanced. Even in VTOL. Just need it for planet to planet travel.

Hover at 40% Throttle on Droo

Use Gyro for VTOL.

Use landing and parking reverse engines for VTOL minor adjustments.

Must stay above 100 m/s to use the control surfaces only. Use gyro for slower speeds.

Be sure to check out the docking camera for a great docking view. Turn on the docking light as well, it acts as a laser guide centered on the docking port.

. . .
IMPORTANT:

You will need to come to a complete stop and the wings level with the ground in order to start falling in Vtol. Even 20 m/s will keep you airborne horizontally. Then just set Vtol to 38% throttle and land like a champ.
I recommend using the Nav Sphere to check if you are level and true to your course.
. . .

Thanks for any interest!

    @Mercer okay ya man they did a ton of updates to the game after this RTG mod was done and its supposed to make free battery power.
    Heck knows whats really goin on. I wouldnt use.parts from my craft only for that reason.
    Again you can tag me on an unlisted post in the comments and ill see it if you dont want folks seeing it.
    Ill need to comb it over to see whats up. Lots could be going on or just something weird.
    Even mirroring odd shaped crafts can mess up connections for example and the gyro might not be connected and bouncing you around. I have seen weirder stuff lol

    @Starborn Every time my ship uses a gyroscope, the bow of my ship lifts and falls to the ground very quickly, not almost in the air like yours

    @Starborn i see..
    well I may not have made myself clear yesterday. I wanted my ship to be able to move its bow steadily in the right direction with no power, or even no engine, depending on the gyroscope. I thought the ship you built would work, but I've been trying to figure out why.

    @Mercer yes but shouldnt bother what you're talking about. And I didnt do it, @crazyivan did the RTG charger, its modded and the reason there is 20 AGs

    @Starborn I'll try to tune it up, and if it doesn't work, I'll upload it for you.
    Thank you very much!!!

    @Mercer i would need an upload to see whats going on but i imagine its too powerful or you have something off you are bypassing somewhere

    @Starborn I'll check it out later.
    And then the question is, why is it that when I have a gyroscope, the ship is spinning around, not stable at all?

    @Mercer I think theres like 3-4 gyros in this thing lol. There are hidden wings too so if you pull those all off it should act normal haha

    @Starborn But I found that if you remove the gyroscope, the ship still looks like it's in zero gravity.Wow, I'm so confused!

    Typically gyros are left alone or only brought to max power. The issue with tinkering is they can shake the craft violently when heading is locked and eat all your battery. There will be a balance with every craft as each is different sizes, weights and layouts.

    I turned the gyroscope on high, the ship will flip quickly and explode

    @Starborn I know this.I just want to know how to tune the parts or set them up so that I can do the same thing with the ship I built....

    @Mercer ahh yes the main gyroscope is quite powerful too. You can aim the nose at the ground before lift off and then do Vtol with the reverse engines instead to float around.
    Looks like a vertical robot drone that way lol

    @Starborn Even if I didn't turn the engine on, it lifted and lowered the bow steadily as if there was only a little gravity

    @Starborn That's cool!
    well I mean,On the runway, every time I lifted the bow, it almost stayed in the air without falling off too quickly.

    @Mercer what part do you mean the RCS and docking controls or pounding on the throttle in cosmic overdrive? Or something else? Lol
    The RCS is well balanced on the center of weight and the docking port is near center also. The only reason its not is for looks as it lines up better with the interior docking tunnels which are useless because we cant send droods through them and crawl.
    The cosmic overdrive has its own ultra powerful gyro attached to its active group so it kicks in only then. Otherwise you have no lock during high speeds or you would do 80 rolls trying to land haha.

    @Starborn No problem landinghaha.
    I'm just curious how do you get your ship to float anywhere like it does in space? It's amazing!

    @Mercer its not light thats for sure lol, without the wings it has no atmospheric control and feels like flying in space but always falling. I wanted it to stay heavy so this was my answer.
    The only tinkered weight is 2 extra fuel tanks and some cockpit details

    @Mercer The wings are tinkered way smaller so they look 10x smaller than they are. Theres another post of it on my profile with no drag if youre having trouble landing it. Still maneuvers well in the air.
