This craft consists of the Nylon E-28 orbiter and six of the Ion reactors in place of it's 9 chemical engines.
Aspects of the orbiter, besides the reactors, have also been tweaked/improved. Those including a 2m height increase in the cargo bay, a 47.38% decrease in mass and RCS power as well as an increase in gyroscope power.
The reactors on this version of the orbiter extend and retract for protection of the reactors as well as to expose it's solar panels to the sun.

Run through the stages as seen.
Stage three is associated with the cargo bay and is the docking port. Activating it will turn on the port but shouldn't undock it's cargo.
When landing be sure to have the gyroscope activated.
Use RCS in translation mode to make adjustments and slow down especially if landing on lunar surfaces as the reactors may provide too much thrust.

4) Cargo Extension
5) Cargo Rotator
6) Solar Panels
7) Landing Legs
Do not extended the reactors before you launch off the pad as they will either break off or explode.
During/After atmospheric re-entry, if you pitch at the right angle, you can glide quite a ways if needed
If there any craft problems leave them below and enjoy!
