This thread is devoted to all things SSTO!!
Have an interesting Single Stage To Orbit Aircraft or Rocket that you wish to share? Then this thread is for you~
Not sure how to build an SSTO aircraft? Here are some of my SSTO's, they all work and are capable of flying into orbit and landing safely back at the KSP runway. Feel free to use them as you please.
These SSTO's use Action Groups, before attempting to fly check out the action groups so you know what does what. Action Group (1) is usually Toggle Air Intakes + Toggle Jet Engines.
The craft files have been compressed in .RAR format.. So use WinRar or an alternative to extract the craft file.
SSTO Shuttle Mk5 - http://www./download/exxdvwsa48s4p5n/SSTO_Shuttle_Mk5.rar
This SSTO is a rather large 3 Kerbal Space Shuttle, it is capable of flying to other planets without refueling in orbit if used correctly.
VTOL SSTO Mk1 http://www./download/v7vo26odlag6zad/VTOL+SSTO+Mk2.rar
A small VTOL SSTO capable of getting into orbit around kerbit, then de-orbiting... and then landing back at KSP headquarters and landing on the roof on the heli-pad with fuel to spare.
Be sure to check the aircraft's action groups before flying.
SSTO Type 29 Rapier Mk1 - http://www./download/jw6wl79j85dqqyq/SSTO+Type+29+Rapier+Mk1.rar
The Type 29 Rapier is a low part count SSTO built around the R.A.P.I.E.R. Engine.
SSTO Type 26 Ares Mk2 - http://www./download/qrp2zvpbd83ikm9/SSTO+Type+26+Ares+Mk2.rar
Type 26 Ares Mk2 is a culmination of many SSTO designs. It is capable of flying to the Mun or Minmus without refueling and then landing on them using it's two small vertical rockets, if used correctly you will have fuel to return to Kerbin. Type 26 Ares is easy to takeoff, easy to get into orbit and the most important... easy to land.
SSTO Type 24 Raven R2 http://www./download/8kuc5ia614a619i/SSTO+Type+24+Raven+R2.rar
Type 24 Raven R2 has an unmanned probe in it's belly. You can deploy it once in orbit. I am not very good at making probes though... hahaha~
You might need to use the two rocket engines to get off the ground before the end of the runway.
SSTO Type 23 Diamond R4 http://www./download/f3nxybr9v6n4vgd/SSTO+Type+23+Diamond+R4.rar
Type 23 Diamond is quite heavy for it's size, easy to take off, easy to land.. One Kerbal SSTO with the ability of flying to other Planets if used correctly.
And some SSTO images to start the thread off~
