Auto Credit Based on JSO18's JSO Sparrow 2 Auto Launch Phoenix Crew

The JSO Sparrow 2

The Sparrow 2 first stage automatically lands itself near the launch site. In 10 flights, It had 9 successful recoveries. The second stage continiues to an accurate orbit. In 10 flights, it was always within 2 km of the target orbit. The Sparrow 2 can also carry payloads to many different orbit hights and inclinations.

Sparrow 2 Cargo capabilities

  • Reach any orbit from 100km to 750km accurately
  • Fly with any target heading, making it easy to reach many different orbits
  • Carry up to 25,000kg to up to a 150km orbit, or up to 5,000kg to a 750km orbit

How to use the Sparrow 2

Launch from the launch pad on the stock system. Follow the prompts to choose your orbit hight and target heading. After that, the Sparrow 2 will get to orbit and land the first stage on it’s own. After landing the first stage, it will switch back to the upper stage. This will be the only other time you are needed for the flight. It will tell you to activate AG 7. After doing this, the Sparrow 2 will finish the orbit on it’s own.

In case of failure

1st stage landing failure

If the Sparrow 2 first stage command chip explodes on landing, you will need to manually switch to the upper stage. Then the flight will continiue like normal.

Thanks For Using Sparrow 2!

Phoenix 3 is coming soon!

    @Rockets5001 sorry it took so long. Here is a version that should fix that problem.

    @Rockets5001 I think I know what happened, and why it did not happen to me, so it should not be hard to fix.

    @JSO18 when you put in the pitch it leans to its side and falls.

    @Rockets5001 thanks! A new Sparrow might be a while though, since I am working on the Phoenix 3 now.
