WARNING: NEEDS FIXING
- Type: SPH
- Class: lifter
- Part Count: 178
- Pure Stock
You may need to change the amount of fuel in different stages if you are planning to launch a heavy satellite (be aware that I’ve only tested payloads of up to 1 ton). The aircraft in the images of the launch is missing the mating adapter, that is because I hadn’t built it yet. The mating adapter doesn’t change the functionality, just the aesthetics.
Please Note: This is not a perfect replica, I’ve had to make changes to the design in order for it to work well. I added a set of fins on the 2nd stage, angled the main wings down slightly to bring the center of lift lower, and used a longer SRB as the first stage in order for it to be able to reach orbit. That being said I did try to keep it as close to the real thing as possible.
How to launch the Pegasus:
Step 1: take off at around 100m/s
2: Pitch up to about 25-30 degrees for climb
3: Pitch down when necessary to make sure you are always accelerating.
4: Level off at 5,000m
5: Drop Pegasus (the L-1011 will turn away uncontrollably)
6: Ignite 1st Stage
7: Pitch up to 45 degrees
8: After burnout, stage, but don’t ignite 2nd stage
9: At about 40km ignite 2nd stage at 0 degrees attitude
steer it to adjust you’re Ap
11: At Ap ignite 3rd Stage
12: Deploy fairing/payload
