Description

This is the robotic, unmanned, cargo variant of the Alliance-V shuttle.

It can handle basically any payload you can fit in its (admittedly tiny) cargo bay, and ships with its own docking adapter.

Flight Instructions

The first stage is primarily used to gain altitude and ascent should be steep.

Turn on SAS and RCS, throttle to full and stage. Keep nose pointed vertical until speed reaches at least 80 m/s. Then lean the shuttle back to 80 dregrees. From here, fly hands-off until side booster burnout. The shuttle will wobble some, and will force itself into continuing the turn.

After side booster burnout, the nose should be well above 45 degrees. Stage to separate the boosters, throttle down to 75%, and refine your trajectory.

Action Groups

1) Toggle shuttle engine
5) Toggle cargo bay
G) Toggle landing gear and landing light
U) Toggle exterior lighting
Backspace) Separate launch stack, disable all booster engines, drain shuttle’s fuel

WARNING: Fuel drain is irreversible
