SSTO Spaceplane

This SSTO plane has a delta V budget of approximately 3900 m/s in orbit. A mod aircraft called MSTTO07. Built with 34 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.4.

To get from the airfield into space: - Press space - When velocity is >100 m/s pull up - Climb with an 20-25 deg angle until you reach an altitude of 11-13 km - Slowly pitch down to an angle of 10 degree to gain speed - When you reach an apoapsis of 16km, pitch down to 0 degrees - At 1620 m/s, fire up the nuke engines (press SPACE) - At 1700 m/s, switch RAPIER to closed cycle mode (right click on the engine) - Pitch up to 10 degrees and let the plane apoapsis rise - When you run out of oxidizer, slowly pitch down to 0 degrees and wait until you reach an apoapsis of lets say 80 km. - Circularize when you reach apoapsis: you should have at least 1400 LF left in the tanks (delta v is approx. 3800 m/s) - Transfer fuel from wings and secondary fuel stacks to the MK2 compartments by right clicking them while pressing ALT.

And that’s it. I bet there’s a lot of room for improvement!
