The Place-Anywhere 7 Linear RCS Port is a RCS thruster used for spaceship rotation and translation movement and is fuelled by monopropellant. The Linear RCS Port has the same thrust as the RV-105 RCS Thruster Block but is only capable of thrusting in one direction. This part is only available in the paid version of Kerbal Space Program.

Usage

This thruster thrusts in the same direction like all other stacked engine. To control a craft with these ports, a minimum of 6 thrusters are required.

RCS thrusters seem to prevent RT-10 Solid Fuel Boosters from overheating, even when offline.

Description

For every space that really needs an RCS thruster, Reaction Systems Ltd. has you covered with its new Place-Anywhere 7 Linear RCS Port!

Changes

0.23.5
  • "PhysicsSignificance = 1" added. The part now has 0 mass and drag, despite the listed values.
0.18.2
  • Nominal performance increased, bug providing vastly superior linear performance removed.
0.18
  • Thrust reduced from 3 to 1 kN; retextured; given Isp values and actual mass.
0.15.2
  • (undocumented) Thrust reduced from 10 to 3, bringing part Isp in line with the RV-105 RCS Block
0.15.0
  • Initial Release
