Description

Introducing the Advanced Kerbin Shuttle Reliant. It can put basically whatever you can fit into the cargo bay, and it can make it into moon orbit, with lighter cargo. Note on flying: The gravity turn has to be done by pitching up, so the plane is flying normally, instead of upside down like the shuttle, also, do a very gradual turn. Once you reach your desired Apoapsis, kill the engines, and make the SAS take you straight through your prograde vector, otherwise the shuttle might flip. On re-entry, it’s recommended that the fuel tanks on the shuttle are completely drained. My recomendation is to do the deorbit burn before dettaching the main tank/booster, then transfer all the fuel left on the shuttle’s tank to the main tank and then dettach to glide into the runway. It’s actually a pretty good glider for a shuttle.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.5.
