Talk:Tutorial: How to Get into Orbit
I've given this tutorial a serious overhaul today for the new 1.0 aerodynamics. I tried to make it such that a new player can memorize it as a sequence of simple key numbers: 100 m/s, 10 degrees, 300 m/s, 10 km, 30 seconds. Let me know what you think!
The old comments on this talk page weren't relevant anymore, so I went ahead and wiped it to a clean slate.
The tutorial is good, however, it's not quite clear what our apoapsis should be when we are finished with the first stage, and what angle we should burn at to get it from there to 70+. --Phay (talk) 20:59, 7 June 2015 (UTC)
- Why would the apoapsis at stage separation be important? The important bit is to get it above 70 km with the second stage. For the angle, the tutorial already instructs to keep the level indicator within the prograde marker at all times - I'm not sure how else to explain it. Wcoenen (talk) 14:15, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
