Description

Spaceplane using only Liquid Fuel. Equipped with twin RAPIERS and a LV-N. It has enough delta-V to land on the Mun and return to Kerbin with about 10% fuel leftover.

It is stupidly easy to fly because it is well balanced and has a 1.25m reaction wheel.

Add a solar panel and antenna if you feel the need.

Ascent

Ascend at ~20 degrees, level out slightly at 10000m. You should be able to get to about 1650m/s on the jet engines and from there it should be very simple to circularize the orbit with the LV-N.

Re-entry from Mun:

I recommend setting Periapsis to 40km and using Radial Out hold so the belly of the plane faces the air. No part of the plane is particularly heat resistant so you should simply maximize drag.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.9.
