Description

A 1/3rd Scale replica of the NASA Space Shuttle it can deliver a small payload to 100km orbit. Included is a resource scanning satellite. Be aware it must be put in a 100km polar orbit to work correctly, adjust your launch angle accordingly pre or post launch.

To fly set throttle at about 90% and then stage main engines, stage again to release clamps and ignite Solid Rocket Boosters. Follow a normal rocket launch trajectory keeping the orbiter underneath. When you stage the release of the empty SRB’s you should now rotate the craft to put the orbiter on top. You should have enough fuel to circularise before you need to jettison the main tank and activate the OMS.

Action Group 1: Open Bay Doors
Action Group 2: Decouple payload

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.0.5.
