    @BeastHunter not that big of a deal considering the very forgiving payload mass, thanks for pointing it out though

    The new update will likely invalidate the 75km orbit parameter.

    @Activatewindows as long as it still falls under the category of spaceplanes it's fine by me (F.E the dynasoar has multiple stages). Oh and i don't really care about the amount of stages unless it's an absurd number
