Hello. I have made my first SSTO…¨¨I think it’s well designed however i am stuggling to get it to orbit with a 16t payload.¨I have planned a return journey to the mun but cannot seem to achieve orbit.¨¨It struggles at 5900-6200m at 310-330m/s for a few minutes losing neglegable speed and alt, but eventually pulls through and begins accelerating.¨¨at 24,000m and 1200m/s i change to closedcycle and initiate nuclear engines but it seems to lose control and cannot continue accelerating to orbit, i have never seen it break 31-33,000m before it begins flying out of control, and i’m not sure if i have my fuel balances right.¨¨could anyone try achieve orbit and let me know what the problems are, and how to correct with the goal being a return journey to the mun?¨¨Much appreciated
