The AC S-4 Speeder Mk2 is an early career Science & Exploration plane that’s easy to fly and land.

It’s well balanced, Very Short TakeOff and Landing, very maneuverable and good cruising speed.

It can be flown without SAS and minimal use of Trim.

The standard Science package has 1 Thermometers, 1 Goo Experiments and 1 Science Jr.

There’s room for 3 kerbals, but the recommended crew is 1 pilot and 1 scientist, because it’s easier to shuffle them around when there’s one spot open (Crew cabin not allowing passengers to exit)
