This is my replica of the Rokot, which is a Russian launch vehicle first launched in the 90s and still used today. My version is fairly accurate both in aesthetics and functionality. BE WARNED: The second stage can be a little bit uncontrollable in the lower atmosphere due to the large fairing causing lift and drag. So just be aware of that when you separate the first stage. Ive made it as controllable as possible while still keeping the weight down.
Instructions for launch:
1) Launch
2) begin gravity turn at 1,000m
3) Be at 45 degrees by 10,000m
4) Stay at that attitude
5) Stage 1-2 separation
6) Keep the same attitude throughout the Stage II burn
7) Fairing separation
8) Stage 2-3 separation
9) Ignite Stage 3,tilt down to around the prograde marker
10) Once desired Ap is acquired, plan and execute orbital burn
11) Payload separation
