Check out the NEW version:
https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/JAxGmd/MSL-Curiosity-Rover

THIS IS OUTDATED. CHECK OUT THE NEW VERSION. YOU CAN STILL DOWNLOAD THOUGH.

This is a fully functional version of NASA's MSL (Mars Science Laboratory) Curiosity Rover on Mars right now! It has working suspension like the real thing, a turning mast and a working arm! VTOL is to turn the head, throttle up and yaw to control, and roll left to extend the arm. Action group 1 activates the arm. Have fun exploring!

WORKS ON MOBILE DEVICES!!! YAY!

The suspension is just like the real rover, but without ball joints it can't happen without it looking terrible, but the suspension is still works pretty nicely.

    I'll take an order of one Phoenix lander with a Hubble on the side. Can I get a glass of water with that?

    @BrainyDJ Most likely Sojourner won't be built due to its simplicity...

    @LordofLego So you want a Phoenix Lander? Would you like that with a side of Sojourner Rover and Hubble? Spoiler Alert!
