A development of design shared by Kerbal Forum User @Bewing
His design was not a Kerbin SSTO that can SSTO in Laythe with scientific instruments and crew space for a scientist, intended to take all science from Laythe in a player time efficient maner.
I added a docking port and three FL-T200 worth of LFO and moved the tanks around to bring dry and wet CoM closer;
Set the canard to Pitch only with 28% Authority, a pair of delta Deluxe for Roll was added and the AV-R8 gone to be replaced to a combination of wing stakes and elevon 1 (mostly to improve simmetry);
Landing gears increase in size (ly-35 instead of LY-10) to raise the craft from ground a bit.
Finaly added a service bay with solar panel, monopropelant and moved most science intruments inside)
T0: SAS on hold attitude, full throttle, activate Jet and release brake
T30s:Gears up
T3min40s:activate rockets
T4min:Jet Flameout, turn off jets
T5mins:SAS to follow prograde
T6min30s:apoapsis 75Km, cut throttle, coast to apoapsis
T:11min20s:(30s before the apoapsis) throtle up sligth to ciscularize
Reached 75x75 orbit with 755lf and 80ox (KER says 180m/s)
REENTRY PROFILE(from the orbit above)
Retroburn just after the desert to make the orbit intercept the surface near KSC
Enter the atmosphere with 60° AoA and maintain it until reducing the speed to ~1km/s
Keep rougly 5° above prograde to glide to the runaway

A stock aircraft called B-Wing4ps. Built with 61 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
