Description

A stock aircraft called Grasshopper. Built with 54 of the finest parts, its root part is probeStackSmall.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.

An SSTO spaceplane capable of carrying 4 Kerbals into LKO and then re-circularizing at orbits of up to 250km (or possibly higher; I haven’t fully pushed this craft to its limits yet.)

Does not use R.A.P.I.E.R. engines or any other 1000-science part, so good for career games that are reasonably far along but don’t have the entire science tree unlocked yet.

Has a shielded Clamp-O-Tron port on the nose and enough RCS thrusters and monopropellant for easy docking. Great for shuttling personnel to and from space stations in medium Kerbin orbit.
