Mission Steps & Suggestions

Suggest Launch Throttle - Half

First Step - Roger Roll & Drop Flea boosters

Second Step - Drop Attached Fuel, almost immediate drop of extra boosters.

Third Step - Lower Fuel to minimum (1/3) or more as needed for control Let solid fuel do the lifting.

Fourth Step - Drop solids & wait to orbit height before firing next solids. This is designed to help with about 200 m/s of ‘orbit speed’

Fifth Step - Drop boosters & use about ½ fuel with two remaining engines to set orbit. NOTE: You may want to swap stages 8 & 9 mid-air as excess fuel may end up being dropped with standard staging.

Sixth Step - Remove shielding when in orbit, and transfer monopro & Fuel to one tank (either one) to become orbiting fueler. Manual detach of (junk) fuel / monopro tank. Break shells on satellites & extend one (outer) panel, so they have electricity. Manually decouple satellites. NOTE: Do not go through stage 5 without transferring fuel (designed to be manual detach, but still in staging)

Seventh Step - Retrograde thrust to reenter Atmosphere.

Eighth Step - Prograde entry after decouple of thrusters. Fire jet engine to level out & guide lander over non-water surface. Extend landing gear hotkey 4 and nose up, cutting fuel … and deploy chutes. Return to tracking station to destroy empty tank, and position satellites.
