Whats the largest SSTO or near SSTO (one with drop tanks) you've made unmodded? on Kerbal Space Program

I'm trying to get into making SSTOs or near SSTOs (ones with drop tanks if needed), and while I can make small 1 or 2 manned ones that can't do much but get into orbit then return and land is proving easier I'd really love to make a huge one. And that is not going well.

So I'm left wondering if I'm just having trouble designing them, which is ok I can just keep trying until I get it, or if I'm just trying to do too much with one SSTO and really need to create ones that are more role specific.

What I've been trying to do is use the Mk3 cockpit, the 16 passenger section, the longer cargo bay, one or two nukes and the RCS tank. Granted that doesn't include the necessary fuel tanks, RCS thrusters, and engines to get to LKO. And I'm only really trying to get enough delta v to get to orbit and dock with a refueling station. Then from there be able to get to at least Duna.

I guess this could have been put in one of the questions sub-forums, I posted here though because I'm hoping to see screenshots of large SSTOs that may give me ideas or maybe even push me in a completely new direction in my designs. And I didn't post any of my failures because I'm not at my gaming computer and I think I deleted most of them as being hopeless.

Thanks,

Hexdragon Enterprises | Jets, Vtols, SSTO's; I've got 'em all! on Kerbal Space Program

My name is Hexdragon (or manni01 if you prefer) and I like building atmospheric vehicles. I usually build replicas of real world fighter jets, and while my goal is to have a similar look to the actual jet, my main goal in every replica is to have a very agile, stable and responsive vehicle. I have created many crafts in the past, but most of them are useless due to 0.25 replacing wings. If you want to see them, I have a legacy thread where you can find all my old crafts (0.24.2 and lower) I li...

[Mod Craft] Barely modded SSTO - my first and it is beautifull! :) on Kerbal Space Program

Got to a 80x90km orbit with 250 dv left :-) Small but should be enough to put small items and kerbals to space. Like a cab :) Possible to switch the cargo bay with other stuff. http://imgur.com/a/p2360#0 ...

[Stock craft] SR-81 (SSTO SpacePlane) on Kerbal Space Program

The first successful SSTO I've ever produced. Slightly resembles the SR-71, hence the title. I've constructed three separate variants, a cargo, and docking variant, as well as one capable of holding 6 Kerbals. :cool::(:(:(:(:( As far as my capability goes flying the craft I was able to get this thing into a stable 100KM orbit. I have yet to stress test each variant, but will plan on doing so in the future. The Cargo Variant : http://i.imgur.com/A1aJSL5.jpg Download : https://www.dropbox.com/s...

[Stock craft] Best SSTO ev3r. Thanks to .25 on Kerbal Space Program

Okay, so... the one is 25 tonnes, the other 30 tonnes... one can carry more than the other... that's about it. They use 5 engines. The two outboard engines actually have a fuel tank shoved inside all of that and is the standard Turbo Jet. There are two RAPIER engines in the back, just in case I feel like landing on a low gravity rock. These could easily be replaced by two Turbo Jets. Then there is the single nuke, it's for getting around in space. They lift 5 and 10 tonnes accordingly. B...

KYLON Challenge: SSTO to the next level! on Kerbal Space Program

Your challenge is to create an SSTO that works as well as the fabled SKYLON spaceplane. AKA an SSTO that can get to low orbit (bonus points for being able to take cargo, but i doubt anyone will be able to do it) to do this, you will need these mods: RSS Kerbin (6.4x bigger kerbin works too) FAR or NEAR Realistic Jet Engines Mod Of course you can use other mods, but you have to list them, and they have to be relatively non-OP. Also, no cheats. No other rules. Go Wild and Good Luck! PS: if...

[Unanswered] Need help pilotting SSTO's on Kerbal Space Program

Posting this here as suggested: Alright, had a thread a long time ago asking if an SSTO that I made could get to orbit, it would seem I can make ones that can get into orbit, in theory, but I just SUCK ASS at pilotting them. Generally they are on the heavier side and can't take off until the runway drops off, but I just can't get em into orbit even if I can reach 1.2km/s+. I generally try to build them so that I could use turbojets to actually get my apoapsis where I want, and then an LV-N to...

SSTO orbits now very easy? on Kerbal Space Program

I'm a little confused.. Months ago when I played this regularly I generally had to test, test and re-test SSTO's. Please do not confuse this with bragging. I threw this together with little thought (just having some fun) and it made orbit with almost no effort. What gives? ...

[Stock craft] VTOL SSTO "Xcover" on Kerbal Space Program

I've been playing the game from before they even added the mun but never really had a design worth sharing.. Till now! I always wanted to make a design like this but before 0.25 stock never had the parts I wanted. I'm still working on it, changing minor details (those lander legs..) etc but I'm pretty happy with it now. You launch it from the pad, go with a 80 degree angle till 5000 or so, then go to 45 degrees. at 10.000 put it on 20 degrees and then slowly end up with 15 degrees at 20.000....

[Stock craft] Probe-Launching SSTO Spaceplane on Kerbal Space Program

It's nothing special, and should probably go in the SSTO showcase, but here's the first SSTO spaceplane I've built for any practical purpose. The idea is that I can now distribute probes to all unvisited planets in my career save with a re-usable vehicle. I'm still working on a way to put a new probe in between flights without returning to the VAB though; that may end up requiring KAS. Name: G-A Probe SP Mk III Reason: Go-Anywhere 'Probe Spaceplane' Version 3. I'm terrible at naming things. The...

[Unanswered] SSTO orbit, save, load ,explode!?! on Kerbal Space Program

I've finally perfected my first ssto...got it into orbit...saved...had dinner...came back to kerbal, loaded the save. There's my ssto, beautiful....give it a second for the physics to kick in and the thing explodes. Tried again with a 2nd ssto, same thing...reach orbit, save, load ,explode! Not sure what's going on.....I'd just installed procedural wings, could be that....? Hmmm.... I installed Kerbal Joint Reinforcement, things are a little better....it doesn't explode any more. But now at s...
