This is the Grendel 1 SSTO, my first functional spaceplane for 1.0.5. Built with 43 of the finest parts. It is capable of carrying a pilot and 3 passengers to approximately a 120x120km orbit and returning to the runway.
1) Close intakes and switch RAPIER mode 2) Toggle airbrakes 3) Shutoff RAPIERS
General spaceplane piloting skills needed. Climb at a 45 degree angle until ~12k, bring the nose down and increase speed to around 1300m/s until losing thrust at around 24k alt then toggle RAPIERS and go to space.
The Mk1 cockpit has a tendency to overheat and explode. Be sure to re-enter with a steep trajectory and upon reaching 55k alt, ensure the nose is pitched up at least 40°. Enable RCS and hold the stick straight back. At least, that worked for me. Once.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.5.
