Description

A mod rocket called Jumbo Shuttle + Spacehab. Built with 231 of the finest parts, its root part is mk3Cockpit.Shuttle.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 0.90.0.

Same craft as http://kerbalx.com/crafts/720 but with Spacehab in cargo bay.

Using the biggest engines Stock KSP has to offer, this shuttle can haul a rather large amount of cargo in it’s cargo bay, and return it safely to Kerbin.

Works fully with completely stock installs! But if you have FAR installed, it’s even better:

  • Realistic Body Flap to control pitch during reentry! (Action group 9 and 10 to decrease and increase flap setting)

  • Split-Rudder speed brake to control your glide!

This will allow you to re-enter at up to a 30 degree AOA (almost like the real thing) and make a safe re-entry even with Deadly Reentry!

This is not quite as easy to fly as the my NASA replica (http://kerbalx.com/crafts/631) , but it’s still a fully stable craft, meaning at no time do the engines fall out of balance. I would install a mod such as Kerbal Engineer or VOID in order to keep an eye on your trajectory. If you have FAR, be sure to reduce your flap setting to 0 before you launch (AG9).

Includes a not-very-accurate-but-functional Spacehab in the cargo bay, with science, battery, solar and mobile processing lab onboard.

Action groups:

AG1 - Shutdown SSMEs

AG3 - Toggle OMS engines

Abort - Shutdown and separate boosters

FAR-only:

AG9 - Decrease Body Flap

AG10 - Increase Body Flap
