  1. 1.0 1.1 The mass and drag are from the part config, but the game handles it massless/dragless.

The Place-Anywhere 7 Linear RCS Port is a RCS thruster used for craft rotation and translation, especially in space, and is fuelled by monopropellant. The Linear RCS Port has twice the thrust as the RV-105 RCS Thruster Block but is only capable of thrusting in one direction.

Currently, it has "PhysicsSignificance = 1", making it a massless part with drag added to its parent.

Usage

This thruster thrusts in only one direction. To translate a craft, at least one thruster on each of the x, y, and z axes are required. It is useful for balancing RCS on a single axis.

Product 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

1.7
  • New model and texture
  • entryCost decreased from 4200 to 800
  • Cost decreased cost from 280 to 25
  • Mass decreased from 0.03 to 0.02
  • Tolerance decreased cost from 50 to 15
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 2 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
  • Initial Release
