Using launch clamps, SAS, ASAS, some struts.


I ended up scrapping the design and trying something else that ended up working.

Potentially not enough struts.

You need to strut your stuff.

Dat Kerbal Technology. Experimenting with jets more, I just like using them. So damn efficient.

Behold, the Ultra-altitude Test 2. Not really named, I guess you could call it the skipper.











Given enough time and a steadily decreasing ascent, this thing can nearly reach orbit. It has to throttle back almost to zero at the edge of the atmosphere, using what little oxygen is available and taken by the crapton of ram air intakes. I'm not sure if it could completely exit the atmosphere (researching it the net indicates no). On this run it reached the apoapsis/periapsis that you see there, and I stopped messing with it at that point. Mainly trying to experiment to learn how much thrust and how many air intakes are necessary to reach this kind of altitude purely with turbojets, in order to design extremely lightweight spacecraft that use damn near no fuel.

Oh, yeah, it reached that altitude and speed using only ~90 units of fuel out of 150.

The science is awesome, but I want a mod that makes advancing more difficult.

@Raz: I did see someone build a Jet/Ion driven craft able to reach orbit. That was pretty interesting. Also technically you have a orbit there even if it not a stable orbit as you skim the atmosphere.

Kerbal Space Program is 40% off on Steam this weekend.
Might be interesting if you were waiting for a discount.
