Overly large rocket

I think that this rocket is unnecessarily large for launching just a small satellite. Take a look at Tutorial: Sputnik 1. This tiny rocket is able to brings a satellite into low kerbin orbit. You might need a bit more when you want geostationary orbit, but definitely not a rocket as large as described in this article. --Crush (talk) 06:19, 12 June 2013 (CDT)

RCS for a satellite?

What does a satellite need RCS for? The probe command pods have enough rotation torque for turning the satellite, and you also have a liquid fuel engine on board for orbital corrections. --Crush (talk) 06:19, 12 June 2013 (CDT)

Not helpful

This tutorial is grossly inadequate, it takes more space explaining how to get the said satellite in orbit than explaining the satellite and probe construction. That section can me directed to other tutorials to save space and focus more on the aspect of building and designing probes. I'll be updating and refining this in the following weeks.
