  1. This is probably the best SSTO I ever made from 2012: is cheap, can boost your game (if you are playing a career game) becoming the lifter for anything before the 1k science wall. I know is not beautiful but is very, very effective. 27 tons on 100 km orbit with wide load cargo (is not a joke) Perfect flying capabilities and reentry (no rolling flapping) Hyper tested.

  2. Thanks you, I did updated the craft file.
  3. Four years ago on reddit :
  4. Thanks for the advice, Il will immediately change that part and update the file. Thanks you.
  5. If you are playing a career game there are things that matters: cost, research, safety, effectiveness. In my game I imposed myself to make crew rotations on long term station, to minimize cost you need ssto but effective SSTO will come with R.A.P.I.E.R. engines that are very expensive engine. This SSTO is my answer. It flies almost 20/30 times and this is the perfected version. Is cheap and does need high research elements such as R.A.P.I.E.R. engine but still perfect in its role mission task: safely bring a 3 member crew to/from any Orbital Kerbin station without refuelling. It reach 100/100 LKO with remaining 1300 ms of DV enough to reach also any Mün or Minmus station. Safe. the orbiting ascend is made in only four manoeuvres: a) take off rotation to 10° ascend angle, b) switch to aereospike at 1380 ms c) shutdown engine when reached your goal apoapsis d) circularise . Safe on reentry: once you made your preferred deorbit burn just set your VSO to orbit RAD+ with 0 rotation and wait unti il speed slow down, once you regain a correct flying asset you will bless it's almost perfect balanced flying performance: that will allow you to safe land your crew on runaway.

  7.

  8. See Album on Imgur TakeOff advices Be carefull pulling up because the lower gear and the Nerva displacement fly with 10° pitch until reached 8000mt altitude then change pitch to 15° change pitch to 20° after at 30000 (when the R.A.P.I.E.R. engines toggle) finalise orbit circularisation using Nerva Engine (key1) Keys Toggle Nerva Toggle R.A.P.I.E.R.

  9. Dear Sam, I wish to thank you for you amazing little 3 seat cabin. Is an very fast 6 metric tons single engine little bird (2255 m/s overland) with full ISS capability. Reliability, speed, weight and aerodynamic was the main goal fully accomplished by this little spaceplane. Designed as fullwing has very good flying capabilities and is Death Reenter safe. It goes in a 130 km circular orbit with 450 m/s of DV to spare (that mean 200 + deorbiting) enough to make the required orbiting and rendezvous manoeuvres. His scope is to ferry crew from KSC to the orbiting space station. I just reported the mission to bring back home Jeb, Bob and Bill from the Kerbin Main Space station.

  11. I VERY APPRECIATE this lander cabin. I make a moon lander around this Capsule. Ty

  13. Np xtremespino , Sparrow It was a temp name, the ship is not pubblished yet, I'm going to use italian names, and I'm thinking to call it "Gabbiano"(seagul). The cargo is working hard shuttling the component for my new Kerbin SpaceStation and is almost perfect. Right now Steve Kerman is returning from the STS-04 (linking the fuel tank module). Are planned 12 STS missions to complete the spacestation project. I'm currently using the death Reenter mod (g force and temperature) and il Gabbiano is working fine.
