Description

A stock aircraft called Phoenix to the Mun. Built with 60 of the finest parts, its root part is mk2Cockpit.Standard. The Mun Phoenix or Phoenix 2 is an upgraded version of the Minimus Phoenix. It includes changes like: Another set of rapiers, another nuke and more LFO and oxidizer.

It has a relatively higher TWR than the Minimus one but it is slightly less forgiving. For one, if you do not take off at 130 m/s, it will start veering wildly from side to side and blow up eventually.

Second, it automatically glides meaning it noses up at a very high altitude. This you can counter but it is annoying.

Third, I had barely enough fuel to make it back! It got quite close (i.e 62 units of LFO or 90 m/s) and landed on the big continent east of the KSC. Recommended for experienced SSTO builders! (I’m not one!)

Enjoy!

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.1.3.
