Internal SAS only, and bonus kudos if you can fly it with SAS off. 3. The plane mu
Inspired by @Alpha_Gametauri questions about Shuttle design I have came up with a practical near stock (only Mecheb2, this was for delta inquiries, can remove and fly a-okay) tutorial fleet to introduce newbie pilots into asymmetrical shuttle flight. Lots of people ( @Raptor9 I am looking at you here) can explain how the change of position of centre of mass (COM) relative to centre of thrust (COM) as fuel burns causes this design to nose up aggressively as a result. But what does this mean in KSP terms? Well, your shuttle stage and tank-engine stage will need to balance their thrust outpu
