Flight profile (max load):
Full throttle takeoff, begin backpressure at 70kph, rotation at 120 kph. Level out after take off and begin to accumulate speed near sealevel until 700+ kph is reached. Gently pull up until prograde indicator reads 10 degree climb. Switch to closed cycle mode when acceleration stops (usually 1450+ kph at 22km) Climb until desired apoapsis. Circularize at apoapsis. Reentry at 45 degrees indicated (extend airbrakes on very steep decents). If very light on fuel, pump remainder to wing or nose tanks. Nose- down to normal flight below 1400 kph / 30km.

*NOTE: Cockpit is set at a -5 degree angle to blend nicely with the nose. If this is bothersome, control from the probecore in the cargo bay.
