The K-Prize Party Thread.
K-Prize badge by WafflesToo (sig badges).
The K Prize challenge is to make the obvious craft, a spaceplane, and make it work. All those who succeed will be included on the roll of honour and get a free back stage pass to hang with Kay Kool and the Kerbettes after their next live performance at the Dog and Booster (where free beer will be available). To enter report relevant accomplishments on a mission which actually flew, your word is goo
My low tech entry, the HKA-3A. It just uses the panther jets and Mk.55 rockets, and 90 tech node parts. Nothing than a LKO tour bus.
Turning on the afterburner. This gets the plane to about 850m/s at 15000m
Then switch to the rockets
Re-entry. I just extend the tailfin to keep the nose 35-45deg above horizon. I am overshooting KSC. Have to fly back.
Landing back to the runway. I am not a very good pilot...
