Besiege Octocopter with Missiles and Reaction Control Wheels
Please note that this post is over a year old and may contain outdated information.
This Besiege octocopter uses reaction control wheels for pitch, yaw, and roll. Lift is provided by eight 4-blade props. It is very stable and able to hover with only minor corrections. Maneuverability is slow compared to a quadcopter, but it's easy to fly and smooth.
It uses FCVB keys and numpad 8456 keys for control, as well as Numpad "+" to toggle landing gear. Numpad 0 through 2 fire missiles. In the video I'm using the Keep Camera Rotation Mod so the camera follows the vehicle, and RocketMod for the missiles. Learn more about these mods on the Besiege mod forum.
Download the bsg file here (use right-click, save as) and place it into the SavedMachines folder in your Steam installation. Example path:
If you can't find the SavedMachines folder, make sure you have at least played the game and saved a machine (to make sure the folder is created), and then do a search for that folder name.
