My attempt to do a reusable ship capable to reach LKO with a 10 tons payload in
It can carry up to 3 kerbals in a luxurious air conditionned capsule and can dock to a 1.25m docking port.
Superdraco engines on the dragon 2 are replaced by 8 24-77
twitch engine which aren’t as powerfull as they should , so it hasn’t the escape system feature.
Merlin 1D engine are replaced by the monstrous
Vector which provide enough thrust to desintegrate the launcher with g-forces, so be carefull.
since there is no fins in ksp stock, i used winglets which are disabled for the ascension phase, remember to activate them manually at apoapsis.
i used A.I.R.B.R.A.K.E.S to help the craft to slow down but it should not go under 250m/s .
Launching this ship is pretty simple :
1-Install the kerbals
2-Deploy landing legs
3-Decouple and take the lauch tower away
4-SAS on and throttle up to 33%
5-Go straight up until your apoapsis reach 60 km ( no gravity turn or you will not have enough fuel to land the launcher)
6-Decouple second stage and put it in orbit
7-Launcher should begin to fall down by this time , activate fins and airbrakes and activate RCS
8-Manoeuver it to your landing site , deploy landing legs , shut down the 8 externel vector
9-Pray the kerbal gods to succes without exploding the landing legs.
- Type: VAB
- Class: ship
- Part Count: 221
- Pure Stock
A stock rocket called Falcon 9 Full thurst + Dragon 2 + launch tower. Built with 221 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark1-2Pod.
Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.0.
- 8 landing legs instead of 4 and they are very fragile
- color of the craft
- launcher is very hard to control at very low speed during landing
- dragon 2 should jetisson heatshield to deploy landing legs
- not enought Delta V but i can’t add more without destroying the look of it
- no engine powerfull enough to make the escape system
Do you really want to downvote this?
Don't forget, people build craft at all skill levels, just 'cos something is 'newbish' doesn't mean it needs hatin'.
It will cost you 5 of your own points to downvote
