Description

Just a basic rocket for those Ferry # Vip to Orbit Around Kerbin Contracts (and nothing more).

After loading wait until it stabilize, turn on SAS and set throutle to max.
At 160m/s set SAS prograde.
Stage when each stage deplets.
Raise perispasis to 80km and coast to circularize
Raise periapsis to complete the contract parameters.
Circularization and retroburn is a bit slow given the pathetic TWR of the last stage but nothing to worry about.
To reenter point retrograde, open the service bay and arm the parachutes and enjoy the time for a quick break. The open service bay generate drag, acting like a improvised airbrake (with decent heat resistance).

Notice that the craft almost fly itself. I didnt check it (yet) but using Smart Parts probably allows to reduce the whole operation to 4 imputs (launch, follow prograde, follow retrograde, throtle up)

A stock rocket called Auto Orbiter. Built with 37 of the finest parts, its root part is batteryBankMini.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.2.
