Description

The K-Wing fighter (Model K-65k). Vaguely reminiscent of a popular all-purpose starfighter used in a galaxy far, far away.

VTOL… start with action group 1 to spool up the VTOLs and then activate group 2 when 30-40m off the deck. Once you pass 100ms, turn off the VTOLs with 1 again. If you nose up after activating group 2, quickly turn group 1 off and back on again. No clue why that happens.

A bit finicky to get into orbit, but with a good launch profile you should be able to circularize with around 1k dv leftover. Basically, get as much speed in the 18k to 22k meter range, slowly throttle down when your thrust goes asymmetric, then punch group 3 and floor it when you’re no longer gaining speed from air breathing mode.

Watch the video if you’re having trouble with the launch profile. =)

Yes, I’m aware the S-Foils stay locked. Sometimes you have to pretend.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 0.24.2.
