A stock aircraft called Mantis Shrimp Mk3. Built with 29 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.2.
After extensive testing, I made these modifications. On takeoff you need to let it slip off the runway, don’t try to take-off any other way. On ascent, you need a very steep angle of attack, something like 45 degrees almost, until around 10km where you can level out a bit. Once you get to 28km switch to closed cycle, and burn till you have about a 75km apoapsis. Then just burn at apoapsis to orbit, and if you’ve done it well you should have just about 5-10 units of liquid fuel and oxidizer left once you’ve hit orbit, plus some rcs to maneuver.
Tiny, but Fierce!
