The X-108 Colibri is a 8.25 t Mini SSTO.
Main Propulsion is done by the Rapier, which accelerates the craft to up to 1600 m/s in atmoshere. Rapier rocket mode or spark brings the Colibri into orbit.
Long range transport is done by a pair of Ion Engines.
4 Batteries and four deployable solar panels provide power for the Ion Engines.

Take-Off and Landing
Colibri does not have landing gear. The Rapier has enough thrust to lift the craft vertically like a regular rocket.
The skilled pilot can land the craft with rapiers only on its tail. Regular Kerbals use the parachute on the nose to assist with the landing.

Have fun!
