  1. When I use the MJ Maneuver Planner to fly to Minmus, I've noticed that the maneuver required varying amounts of delta-V. Sometimes it got a little past ~1300 m/s, others I've seen it go as low as ~900 m/s. My goal is to minimize the amount of fuel it takes to make the burn from LKO to Minmus so that I would have enough to safely land my SSTO. Image of the Mk. III Duna SSTO. I believe that, to decrease the amount of fuel I use for the Minmus burn, I need to not only launch at the right inclination, but the right time at well. Since Minmus has an orbital inclination of 6 degrees, I need to launch my plane at an 84-degree azimuth (that's also a 6-degree inclination). However, what I DON'T know is how I'm going to time my launch right so that my orbital inclination matches Minmus' AND requires the least amount of fuel to reach it.
