    Bug:
    Build any atmospheric ship (preferablely large grid) and let it hover level above ground. Add a piston/rotor/wheel to one end of the ship with some a weight like armored blocks attached to the head. You will notice that the ship will start to tilt at an angle towards the end where the piston/rotor/wheel is attached to, and ship will also start to sink down. The same thing happens if you park a smaller ship at one end (without locking it with landing gears).
    However if the attached grid at the end of the piston/rotor/wheel or parked ship is locked onto the main grid with landing gears, the tipping over stops.

    Also at all times there is more than enough thrusts and gyros to keep the ship afloat and level.
    Bug also appears in [1.79]

    Pic of my ship. The two landing gears on the right are attached to the ship via pistons

    My ship after 1min. If the landing gear is locked to the ship via a landing gear, this listing does not happen

    Also this probably related too... if you dock a small ship to a large ship via connector and turn off the engines of the small ship, the large ship will start to slowly sink, even if the large ship has enough thrust to lift both ships. If same small ship lands and lock it's landing gear on same large ship, the large ship will not slowly sink down.

    Likely that that game does not treat attached grids that are attached via pistons/rotors/wheels/connectors as part of the whole ship, and apply physics to it. But it will do it for grids attached via landing gears.

    Please fix.

    Issue is still happening in 1.180.3 although the tilt seems a bit slower

    Hi guys,
    We know about this issue and it has been reported to the programmers. It is tricky one, so it may take some time. Current workaround is to use safety locks on the rotors and pistons, when using ship in the planet's atmosphere. Thank you very much for your feedback, it is important for making the game better.
    Have a nice day :)
