Early stock ssto with turbo jet engines. Parts are stock with revamped parts for looks. Includes fuel lines for the center tank, you could remove the fuel lines and manually transfer fuel from the center tanks for even more basic career start. No payload, but you could do science with it. Flight profile is simple: From liftoff point the nose to 25/30 degrees to either gain as much speed as you can or you can do classic airhogging, if going for 30 degree escape:do not change it. 30 degree escape: look untill AP is about 3 seconds away, toggle off the jets (1) and toggle the rockets (2). Go up at 45 degrees untill AP is at 50,000 and burn 0 degrees (horizontal) untill AP hits 75,000. At this stage you will have enough time to add a node to circularize. You should have enough fuel to play around LKO and with a little bit of extra fuel you should be able to get to the Mun. Airhogging you should have enough fuel to go to the Mun as you will have an alot higher velocity befor igniting the rockets. Deorbit you can move all the LO fuel back to each jet tank to be able to fly if not managing to land at the KSC in a glide. Album:
