Questions : Does the emplacement of the gyro affect how the ship turn ?

Should be asked on the forum, you got more chance of answer there. But my guess is that it doesn't change anything as it just calculates according to each thruster's position. --DarkGhost 10:22, 28 January 2014 (EST)

Force in Nm not N

Hi there,

I do not fully understand why the Force of the Gyroscopes is in kN. It is a momentum, so it should be in kNm... right?

Correction/Answer would make my day, thx for reading.

Both thrusters and gyroscopes use the same name for the "force" property in their .sbc definition files. Each property on this wiki can only have one type of magnitude without enabling a false equivalency to a different magnitude. I have created a new property Property:ForceMagnitudeTorque to display the correct unit, though its name no longer precisely matches that of which you would find when examining the gyroscope definitions.
