Description

A stock rocket called Falcon9, a lifter with capability to be reusable like SpaceX Falcon9 (this is 1st stage). Built with 49 of the finest parts, its root part is dockingPortLarge.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.2.

For a right launch cargo in LKO (80km) need a second stage (I’ll upload it if need)

Hints and Tips:

1- Launch with gimbal ON (default) for engine
2- At AP 60km decouple this 1st stage
3- Activate RCS, select probe and choice control from here
4- Point retrograde orbit and burn until trajectory is between launchpad and the isle with old airport (if your launch was to EAST)
5- Point retrograde surface and activate brake
6- At 10Km press 1 to toggle gimbal off for engine, deactivate RCS and open the legs
7- At 2Km burn to slow under 100m/s
8- At 500m burn to slow under 50m/s
9- At 100m burn to slow under 10m/s
10- Touchdown under 5m/s

I use these mods for a better mission control:
