The KSA PaperSpacePlane with and added air-breathing jet booster to get it high enought in the air so the ion plane can make it into orbit
No action groups. Just stage your way through. Be very careful with the jet throttle. You don’t need much. Start at 33% Throttle and Increase slowly as you clime. ~50% at ~12km and full by ~25km
The tail drags on take off. It’ll be fine, just turn on SAS and don’t touch the controls till it takes off on its own
The goal is to get above 2100m/s and 45km with the jet, the Ion can make it from there. It’s tricky, you don’t want to clime too slow and run out of jet fuel too deep in the atmosphere, and you don’t want to clime too fast and run out of air before you use all your fuel and gained all the velocity you need.
