The 24-77 "Twitch" Liquid Fuel Engine is a small, radially mounted liquid fuel engine.

Product description

Tiny engine! But very useful, good for craft where larger radial engines won't fit. Although, you may need more of them to lift larger payloads.

Rockomax Conglomerate


The Twitch is used to provide thrust to a rocket. It is great for small probe landers because it has a high thrust-to-weight ratio. While it can be radially attached without a structural part and can be used to fit landing legs, it is less powerful and efficient than the 48-7S "Spark" Liquid Fuel Engine (though it is 50 kg lighter).


As of version 1.7 this engine has two textures that can be switched in the editor.
