Since KSP v1.1, Squad decided to ‘fix’ the attachment rules of Mk2 fuselages. This has led to some unexpected/inconsistent/buggy behaviour when rotating Mk2 fuel parts, so you may find that some of these parts are flipped over (aesthetics issue only). If this bugs you, please send me a pm for the pre-1.1 part configs and message Squad about a fix :). There’s a topic about it on the forums here.
Stock SSTO spaceplane 2-seater with cargo, passenger and fuel variants. Change variants by detaching the docking port, deleting the cargo bay and inserting the prefered modules before re-attaching the docking port. Make sure the craft is controlled from the
Mk2 Drone Core. Built in the SPH in KSP 1.3.1 by Yakuzi.
