This is my STARJET shuttle design, it’s not an SSTO. So in order to fly it you need to strap it on a bigger booster ( 2 SRBS + 1 LF Tank ).¨ ¨ The STARJET is equiped with 2 modules ( 1 ore collector and 1 processing module ) that can land on their own. The ore collector has the ability to move with a decent velocity on Kerbin/Duna surface using wheels ( Go gentle on braking to prevent the module from tipping over ). ¨¨ After landing, connect the two using KAS mod and you will be able to refuel your shuttle. ¨¨ Due to Duna’s lower gravity and lesser drag coefficient, the STARJET becomes an SSTO and can reach Dunian orbit after refueling.¨ ¨ The small plane in the front is the MINI STARJET. It’s a small plane used to do an emergency ejection of the pilot and a safe landing. (Use the abort action group).¨¨ It requires few attempts to master the mechanics of this spaceplane. As you will have to take into account the mass destribution of the fuel inside, otherwise you’ll lose control over it (Especially during reentry stage).¨ ¨¨ Fly safe! :)

A mod aircraft called Starjet - Shuttle to Duna with ore processing. Built with 113 of the finest parts, its root part is ij.adaptor.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.0.
