Description

Accelerate to 1km/s at sea level then VERY gently pull up to ~30 degrees. Abort (backspace) toggles the Nerv engine, light it up around 10km.

When Whiplash thrust falls off and it begins to decelerate, activate prograde hold (requires 1 star pilot) to bring drag to a minimum and let the Nerv push to space.

When prograde drops to ~5 degrees, release prograde hold and keep burning until periapsis >60km.

Stable, circular LKO should be achieved with >2000m/s delta-v remaining.
