Anyone interested in playing with flyback boosters I have shared a link to stock ones which I have made.
 
They are designed to be able to lift adequate payloads to a parking orbit with equatorial apoapsis of 125km. Then your payload will circularise or you can use an upper stage to do this (taking out of your payload fraction).
 
From there you circularise your payload before switching back to the booster and performing a course correction burn if necessary and then ignite the panther engines to extend your range back to the runway.
 
The Twin Boar variant is great for small satelites. The variant built off the plane tanks can easily lift the Mark 2 capsule to space using a poodle kicker stage and plenty Delta-V to reach your station.
 
the 3.75m variant has be glide tested only, but I figured larger payload options might be useful.
 
I do recommend SRBs for larger paylaods to reserve some Delta-V for high altitude trajectory corrections.
 
Very much interested on people's opinions on the crafts or if they have made fly backs of their own.

Hello, Avo4Dayz!

Your project sounds interesting and useful!

I would like to constructively make the following suggestions that ought to increase the level of response you receive to this:

  1. post some screenshots.  (Use imgur or similar to do this.)
  2. consider opening a KerbalX site to also display your work as well as make it easier for people to download
  3. certainly keep using The Space Exchange here to publish your work and solicit comments and opinions!

I'm definitely going to keep an eye on this topic for further developments.  Good luck!

P.S. I wasn't able to load the 10t & 15t boosters: "some parts missing".  (In 1.6.1. with Making History.)

So turns out the other two craft files had mechjeb installed.
Here is a link to KerbalX and also to Imgur for the lot. The Krafts on KerbalX do not have any modded parts installed
