The LY-05 Steerable Landing Gear is a part introduced in version 1.0.

This landing gear contains a small electric motor that produces a small amount of forward thrust (and consumes a large amount of electric charge) when steering. It is very good for changing direction quickly, and (unlike the LY-10 Small Landing Gear) still steers well when there is no electric charge remaining.

The practical load limit for a single LY-05 wheel is about 2 tonnes on Kerbin.

Product description

Simple wheel with steering actuation. It has become evident that aerodynamic control surfaces don't offer much control while slowly taxiing on the ground. Hopefully these wheels will reduce the number of low altitude low speed collisions with buildings. And Kerbals.
