This giant SSTO is designed to take you a bit everywhere. The craft here is a bit different from my imgur album, but that’s just an imrpoved version.
Ascent from Kerbin is a little longer (6-10 mins) because you should not pull up too hard, or she will loose velocity and stall.
Once you have enough velocity (about 1200m/s at 15k) press 1 to switch rapiers and 3 to activate the vector. Because the vector has higher ISP than RAPIER, you can switch them off by pressing 2 at higher altitude.
A good orbit should give you about 1200-1300 m/s of delta-v left.
If you want to do a VTOL landing (like on Duna) first zoom in to check that the camera is pointing exactly to the center vector engine. If not, transfer fuel to re-equilibrate it.
For Duna: Choose a flat place to land (lowland is better). Lower your periapsis down to 18km a bit before that point. Then glide down as long as you can; you should start to have real stall problem under 100m/s. Open the cargo bay (5) and activate the vector (4) and deactive the main engine (3). Hit the brake button and give a little push of thrust each time you go close to the ground. By doing so you could continue to do a
power-assisted gliding and finally hit the ground around 50m/s (doing it faster may be possible on a REALLY flat terrain).
