Details

  • Type: SPH
  • Class: spaceplane
  • Part Count: 52
  • Pure Stock

The I.S.O.C.E.L.E.S. SSTO spaceplane (Inline Surface/Orbital Crew Exchange Low-drag Exploration Spaceplane). High speed (1550m/s on jets), low drag (all odds and ends including airbrakes tucked in the cargo bay), overpowered, overwinged, easy to launch (rotates up at 60m/s), re-enters on a dime when pancaked radial-out, easy to land (floats down at 40m/s, the airbrakes are hardly needed). Try holding 15 degrees after launch. Just a ton of fun and I think she’s a looker, too.

UPDATE: New and improved I.S.O.C.E.L.E.S. MkII, with even more isocelesiness! Engine and RCS thrust closer to inline, more jet fuel capacity. Just watch out you don’t rotate too hard off the runway and bonk the ventral stabilizers (though she’ll fly just fine if you do).
