-Realism Overhaul and all of it’s requirements

-Rocketdyne F-1 (listed as suggested by Realism Overhaul)


This is an orbit-capable and easy to use light launcher for your small everyday payloads to Earth orbit. Built to be used with Realism Overhaul + Rocketdyne F-1 mods and definitely won’t work without them. The craft comes with a demonstration-purposed ready-to-launch small communication satellite.

It doesn’t include an autopilot or calculator but you may -of course- add your own.

RECOMMENDED ASCENT PROFILE: It has 4 Rocketdyne F-1’s in the first stage and first stage will give you about 4000 m/s. Go vertical until you hit 1500 m/s and start your gravity turn. Go completely horizontal about 70-80km, burn until you finish the first stage. The second stage needs a hot staging so start the second stage’s engine just before first stage fuel depletes, then decouple the second stage. You may raise the apoapsis of an altitude just over 500km, but don’t go too high - just to be safe. Level your prograde vector to horizon when you are at the desired altitude, and shut the engine when you acheived the orbit.

The second stage can be ignited 3 times, but in order to do orbital manuevers, you will need to build an RCS system.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.1.2.
