Mods

  • KW Rocketry
  • Squad (stock)

KW Rocketry is necessary to use the launcher

Start all engines at launch besides rapiers

-Turn 1 pair of external booster engines off as pitch becomes too much to counteract (pairs are bound to action groups 1, 2, 3 and 4)- timing depends on mass of payload

-Drop external tank and boosters once external tank is empty

-Turn on rapier engines (Action group 5) for orbital insertion

-Use rapiers for orbital maneuvers and RCS for rendezvouz and docking

-Use rapiers in atmosphere mode (action group 6) to land on KSC

-To use the hinge, undock the BOTTOM docking port (attached to the bottom of the cargo bay) and switch to the hinge’s probe, be sure to turn on SAS and use the W and S keys to move up/down!
