Description

This is an awesome little VSSTO that will get you to Kerbin orbit with plenty of dV to rendezvous with space stations up to 250km. Take off from your tail like a rocket using air breathing Rapiers, pitch to 80 until 100m/s, pitch to 60 until 150m/s, pitch to 45 until 250m/s, transition to normal spaceplane ascent. You should end up on orbit with 500ish dV. Coming back, save just enough Ox for deorbit, Use a Kobra maneuver to aerobrake, then glide in steep and fast to keep enough energy to transition to vertical landing without using too much fuel. Set down on her tail anyplace flat - or maybe make a water landing? Good luck!
