A stock aircraft called Courier. Built with 121 of the finest parts, its root part is probeStackLarge.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.4.3.

Rated for up to 30T to LKO (may need to remove more Oxidizer for heavier payloads).

Standard ascent profile - take off and pitch up to 30*. Around 8 to 10km nose down to 20*. Switch engine modes when the speed / engine thrust trails off.

De-orbiting - de-orbit from the ocean west of the KSC continent. Set initial landing area to between KSC and the island runway.

Optimized from previous version - CoL much closer to CoM which improved handling especially at lower speeds.
