Hey guys!

Well I finally managed to make a working SSTA. I'm quite proud of this one. I usually just carelessly build spacecraft fast and forget things like solar panels, batteries ect. but this time I actually took my time in the SPH hanger and it turned out flawlessly! Well almost. (Forgot reaction wheels. :P )

This SSTA has VTOL engines, a functioning RCS system and enough DV to begin with to get to Duna or do a Minimus round trip without refueling. It also has four seats so you can easily put a pilot for control and an engineer to speed up mining. The VTOL engines are nicely balanced so landing on Duna with these will be a piece of cake! I still haven't tested its re-entry capabilities but I went up to about 1400 m/s before burning out on Rapiers so I assume it will be fine. The COM/COL placement might be bad so I am going to place an octagonal strut to mark the COL. This helped when I designed an aircraft launched shuttle because the shuttle carrier had stall problems.

Download is coming soon. Still got tweaking to do so I thought I'd just put this here. Also Action group list + how to fly tutorial coming with download so stay tuned!
