- Controlled Engine Burns

I would like to see the ability to tell my craft to burn the main engine for X.X seconds @ X percentage.

I use SURF mode a lot to control my semi manual launches setting my inclination as I climb, it only seems logical to have the ability to automate a controlled engine burn.

:o)

You can use the utillities menu in mechjeb to limit thrust to a percentage before the burn. You can even change the edit box while butning. This can be used to get a more controlled "tail of" as you finish the burn. Also when theh TWR has gotten high and you have to restart a nearly empty stage with a big engine to make a small butn you can turn the %throttle way down.
