Description

3.5T to LKO (80km) using FAR aerodynamics. Apart from MechJEB (can fly without it) it’s stock and uses fairly low tech parts (Panthers and circular intakes).

KSP 1.2.2

Takeoff using only Panthers. Climb fast to 10000m - lessen climb to accelerate to around Mach 2 climb to 20000m and ignite swivels for getting out of atmosphere and cicularise.

Re-enter with about 30-40 degree AOA, nose will pitch down on it’s own, try and keep AOA high as possible to bleed off speed and not burn out. May need to reduce AOA in thicker atmosphere to not break up. Use AIRBRAKES to slow down and land at about 100m/s.

There is a drag chute for landing.
