The Róta is a high performance SSTO designed to deliver a 36 tonne payload to LKO and return to the KSC runway. This might not seem too impressive, I mean, everybody makes SSTOs these days, but the Róta sets itself ahead of the pack with its ease of operation and extremely forgiving handling characteristics in all flight regimes. This is thanks to the 15° angle of attack built into the wing. Under power the Róta climbs like an elevator, and during reentry and final approach, the built in incidence allows the Róta to fly much slower while maintaining control. In fact, the touchdown speed is below 50m/s, which makes for a very short landing roll, in case you are landing somewhere with less forgiving terrain.
Warning: not rated for crewed flights. Warranty void if flown below 25m.
