Well, i took the 4way thrusters for the example pictures - yes, not optimal.

But there are monodirectional thrusters too ;)

I build leightweight ComSats all the time.

HECS probecore, 3x static solar, RA2 antenna, one battery, smallest monoprop tank and a pair of monodirectional thrusters below. 

Vessel mass below 0.5to., has about 230m/s dV - enough for manouvering around Mun and Minmus.

Easy to send 4 of them with one launch.

First go to settings and activate "advanced tweakables".

In the VAB you can rightclick the RCS thrusters then and choose "show actuation toogles", should look like:

Switch on "Force by Throttle".

RCS must be turned on when thrusters shall fire.

Hint: if you deactivate yaw, pitch and roll the SAS wont use the thrusters anymore - no waste of monopropellant if vessel is just reorientating but still full RCS capabilities when using IJKL for docking
