Notice to Elite Dangerous Commanders:

Funny.

Even the docking computers slams you down at about 60ms.

Fighter jets slam into an aircraft carrier deck ideally at around 6-700 feet per minute descent rate.
That's a rough landing, and equate to 3 meters per second.

60 meters per second, well that's almost 12 000 feet per minute.

For anything to be considered soft, you should aim for 1/2, at most 1 meter per second descent rate.

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

Yeah those Jets hit hard amazing they do not break things. I like to pretend I'm flying a helicopter. I switched back to analog from digital setting it was to slow. The Hog Throttle has a couple nicely located controls for thruster movement. I'm flying the DBX for a few hours today heading out to a few mountain sites she is sweet to land so is the Python no more splashing. Landed on Happy Sunday tried to flog a case of Brandy but no-can-do. Dropped it outside as legal salvage then jumped into Lave can be funny there in open at times.
