A stock aircraft called love ssto 1.2.2. Built with 110 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.

Orbit Insertion Checklist:

1 full throttle take off gear up start building speed
2 once speed is at 400 m/s pitch slowly up to 15 degrees
3 keep 15 degrees untill you start loosing speed, once you do hit 2 for nervs
4 try to keep your speed constant by controlling your pitch untill rapiers kick into rocket mode
5 after enjoying the kick of power from the rapiers prograde it and let it burn untill desired height is achieved
6 circularise

Deorbit procedure checklist (provided for a 90 degree orbit) :

1 obtain an orbit periapsis of 72 km at the start of the dessert biome
2 once there burn retrograde until the trajectory is between the ksp and island
3 extend brakes, retract solar panels and extend flapperons with 3
4 try to keep the craft stable as you start descending back to kerbin while pitching up by controlling roll
5 the fastest way to dissipate energy is trying to go up , however if you notice your sink rate to be very low you might risk overshooting the spaceport so slow S turns should do the rest of the deceleration.
6 provided everything went well and the craft is still in one piece the last thing that is left is to glide towards the runway, there should be enough fuel left to fix most of the badness

I hope this helps ! have fun flying ~ sighthough
