Overview :

The main idea came when I started a new science game in KSP. I was looking for a way to get surface sample and reports from kerbin faster. The answer was in aircraft but I had to land, reports,take off, land etc... so I thought about a probe which is loaded on an aircraft (1-6 probes) and that would be dropped around kerbin biomes and then to takes the data and be recovered in the space center.

What it does ?

It is basically a probe that can collect surface sample and do EVA reports without a kerbal. It's only purpose is on Kerbin usage.

When using it from orbit, note that the probe does NOT have reaction wheels, you will need to either add one (from either Sounding Rockets, or BOMPs) or make sure it is aligned. Otherwise you will see some oscillations during reentry, and, depending on which planet, it may overheat.

New parts added to the original mod are:

KurrikaneChute A parachute sized properly for the Kurrikane

KurrikaneDecoupler A decoupler sized properly for the Kurrikane

KurrikaneEngine A small rocket engine, to be used on airless worlds

KurrikaneFin Stabilizing fins for the Kurrikane. When doing reentries, be sure to use the advanced fins

KurrikaneFuelTank Small fuel tank

KurrikaneHeatShield Two heat shields, one slightly larger than the other

KurrikaneScience parts 4 new science experiments, based on existing science technology
