Description

1:VERT 2:HORZ 3:DART 4:REV 5:UP 6:FWD 7:bay 8:ladder
Executive lunar conference jet

To lift-off and fly away:
1. Engage Vert mode [AG1] and select SFC Radial Out; apply thrust to clear the surface
2. Turn to heading; touch ‘F’ to select SAS Hold; engage Horz mode [AG2]; raise the nose to climb attitude hitting ‘F’ to Hold the attitude
3. Deselect Vert mode [AG1] but then hit AG2 twice to re-establish full Horz mode
4. Go full throttle

Sub-orbital is the most efficient way to get around but this craft is loaded with oxidizer for the vertical thrusters to allow low-altitude (a couple of km for ground clearance) scenic cruise.

De-orbiting to land can use retrograde horz thrust (including the Dart) to get low. Then re-establish level flight and/or hover.

A stock aircraft called Salamander. Built with 47 of the finest parts, its root part is mk2DockingPort.

UPDATE: this is now the 2019 model. Action groups have been sanitized; probe controller removed.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.6.0.
