Description

A stock aircraft called [POD Racer]. Built with 56 of the finest parts, its root part is probeStackSmall.

Star Wars inspired POD Racer. While you technically can fly at high altitudes with it, in its current form it’s thruster controlled to be easy to operate close to the ground. Land speed is adjusted to be slow(ish) out of the gate, but you can adjust that up by adjusting thruster control on the main engines.

It gets deployed with a lander can (to allow spawning Kerbals in for sitting in the pilot seat), but this gets ejected during startup. It has Action Groups for liftoff (1) and forward thrust (2). It also comes with a pilot ejection system to save your Kerbal should stuff happen.

To launch the POD, thrust up stage 1 to full throttle. You’ll know when you’re ready by trying to wiggle it around. When it has enough thrust to lift off, it’ll push itself gently off the ground (when you try to maneuver it), at which point you should fire up stage 2 to generate forward thrust.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 0.90.0.
