Description

An unmanned SSTO spaceplane capable of lifting 21 tons to LKO. Heavily inspired by Skylon and EJ_SA’s Enterprise.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.5.1.

How To Fly

KER & Trajectories are recommended for optimal flight

Launch
- Takeoff at 100m/s
- Be gentle on rotation or tailstrikes will occur
- Set pitch to 45*
- Climb to 5km
- Level off to 10* and cruise
- Activate aerospikes when thrust starts trailing off
- Switch to closed cycle once thrust trails off again
- Pitch to 30* and hold until MECO (Ap should be ~80km)
- Lock to prograde to minimize drag
- Circularize at Ap

Reentry & Landing
- lol, crossrange
- Joking aside, just make sure the landing marker is at or before KSC
- It does not slow down like a shuttle does; it will coast until you run out of speed
- If you do go long or short, you have about 30km of crossrange to work with
- Stall speed is 80m/s fully fuelled
