    Hello guys, Im having problem with rotor. Im building openable hangar roof on rotor but now when the roof is bigger and rotor reach certain angle he just bounce back. Better explaination in video:




    I have 2 ideas but dont know if they will work or will be realiseable so im asking here.

    1. idea - Just do program which turn rotor off when it will be close to final angle and set breaking torgue so it will slowly stop.

    2. idea - Landing gear on the end and when it reach the final angle landing gear lock on something.

    But this ideas maybe need programable block and im not really programmer. So someone have better ideas or is here someone who is good enough to write code for this?

    Glad for all help and thanks for all answers.

    Start with idea #1. Rotors are affected by forces. You are rotating a heavy load in natural gravity.

    You want to increase the braking force because a 0 value means it will freely move when you are not commanding it to move.

    Yeah i know but breaking tor is only applied when the block is turned off thats the bad part. And dont wanna wait until it reach certain angle and then turn block off thats too much work i wana have it all automatic :D But dont know how to do if it reach certain angle then turn it off.

    unfortunately in this case your breaking torque (when rotor is on) is the actual torque setting, so breaking torque in this case will not help at all.

    your only option(s) for something this heavy if you dont want it to bounce is to

    1) set up programming to slow down the rotor near the end of the cycle so it doesn't slam into its boundary so hard
    2) actuate it using a piston (which is super sketchy atm)
