SPH
stock spaceplane

A stock aircraft called test 4. Built with 56 of the finest parts, its root part is mk2Cockpit.Standard.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.1.2.

Description

Design goal:

Carry 4 passengers and a full FLT-800 tank to dock with space station in 100km orbit

Action Groups:

1 toggle whiplash’s and intakes

2 toggle aerospike

Before takeoff:

Lock tank on test payload.

Takes off nice, rotates easy with just a touch of pitch up.

Climbs at 20deg. Higher climb angles induce roll and yaw.

Level at 10K, accelerate to 1200m/s then stage aerospike and attempt to pitch up

runaway thrust does not happen, ever, in spite of lots of trying.

This craft does not like to pitch up and when it does it likes to roll and yaw.

If flown just perfect it barely makes 71K alt and fails orbit.
