Flight guide:


  1. Take off on speed 100+ m/s, set pith to 12-15 and wait until 6 km of altitude

  2. Gently set pith to 5 with SAS to prograde/stabilize technique (IMPORTANT: pith should be no less then 3) and wait until altitude 17-18 km and speed 1150+ m/s.

  3. Engage Skipper, do not shutdown turbojets immediately, off turbojets only after self shutdown and maintain pith after it in 10-15 degrees range

  4. When you reach speed 2000+ m/s, set SAS to prograde mode until you leave atmosphere

  5. After circularizing you should have no less then 70 m/s of dV for deorbit burn and 150-200 liters of kerosene for landing air maneuvers.


Move all fuel in forward big tank. For prevent overheating maintain pith no less then 15 degrees. Minimal flying speed near surface ~40 m/s.
