Crow Mk1

Mad Magician eXploration has developed a reusable low cost solution to putting small payloads in orbit. It is capable of putting up to 4t in an 80km orbit (test payload was 2t to 120km orbit). Larger payloads may be possible but have not been tested. At 2t to 120km estimated fuel costs were 800 spesos/ton.

Flight: 5-10 degree climb until RAPIERS hit their curve and start ramping up. 10-15 degrees in thinner atmosphere after switching the aerospike and closed cycle on. For better fuel performance I recommend turning the RAPIERS off before circularization. On Re-entry pump as much fuel as you can into the forward tanks on the nacelles to help with balance (maybe put some in the Big S wings for thermal performance, but will likely cause flat spins for a few kilometers of stall ;) )

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.1.3.
