Starting landing Gear
The first landing gear you unlock LY-01 and LY-05 bounce when they make contact with the ground. Even when the craft is sitting still on the runway it bounces around since the last patch. It makes it very difficult to build the first aircraft in career mode because the bounce usually makes the plane blow up as it is accelerating for takeoff. As a long time player of KSP, I am able to manage it but it being the first landing gear to unlock new players would have a very hard time. Even as an experienced player I cannot land I have to use parachutes to get the plane back on the ground. In my opinion, this should be a priority fix as the first time a new player attempts to make a plane it most likely will not work and I think many new players will be put off by this. The bounce just started in the new version of the game if you could please take a look at this it would be greatly appreciated as many will be unable to create the first plane and it is very useful to have a basic plane in the very beginning both for contracts and for exploration.

The bouncing damps out reasonably quickly, with the craft stationary.
It still cannot take off, because a wheel-bounce starts during the take-off roll.
However, it would be very difficult to take off with this craft even with rock-solid wheels, because of the gear and control-surface placement.
Probably best to consider this an exact duplicate of #19427
