Description

The Mk3 SSTO Shuttle is able to fly into orbit and
return to Kerbin safely with only the cost of fuel.
- -
FEATURES:
Transport up to 4 kerbals
Can haul about a 5.0 ton payload
Dock with ships and stations
- -
INSTRUCTIONS:
Getting into orbit and having any fuel left can be a little tricky so this ship may test your piloting skills.
1. Get to 10,000-12,000m as quick as possible with a fairly steep incline.
2. Level out flight and let ship accelerate to 1000+ m/s
3. Ease ship nose back up to around 15-20 degrees, keep speed up
4. When speed starts to drop (about 20,000m) press SPACE to fire the Vector and burn till AP reaches 70,000m +
5. Warp to AP and finish burn to orbit and hopefully you still have some fuel left.
6. NOTE: RAPIERs will auto switch to rocket mode but it helps to switch them when you fire the Vector with #4
