Description

A stock aircraft called MSS. Built with 100 of the finest parts, its root part is mk2Cockpit.Inline.

Designed for Kerbins local system. Travel to either the Mun or Minmus and return to the runway. Wing section is left parked in LKO awaiting the shuttles return, self guided and powered, the wing section is able to maneuver in space (for easier docking later) but cannot adjust orbit. The shuttle is sent out and can land and return on its own supplies. Re-docking with the wing segment should only be attempted by those very familiar with the process. Misalignment may cause unwanted re-entry effects. Ship glides in quite nicely, approach speed <100 m/s. The climb up is slow and painful, requiring a dive to get over the mach barrier. A good climb out should leave all of the shuttles side tanks completely full.

A trip to Minmus leaves plenty of fuel, however a Mun trip can be quite close to fumes. You should not have to worry about moving fuel around, it is well balanced in the current setup.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
