The Space Shuttle orbiter was the spaceplane component of the Space Shuttle (along with the external tank and solid rocket boosters) from its first flight in 1981 to its last flight in 2011.
There were 5 spaceworthy orbiters built (see below), (: all built in game:
- Columbia (1981 - 2003): 28 missions (first flight)
- Challenger (1983 - 1986): 10 missions
- Discovery (1984 - 2011): 39 missions
- Atlantis (1985 - 2011): 33 missions (last flight)
- Endeavour (1992 - 2011): 25 missions
Each was made as close as possible to its most recent livery.

!!! Challenger has the lowest part count (2019), in case you were looking for the least mobile-unfriendly build

How to use

Get in a different plane first, climb high, go fast, set a custom spawn point.

    Think you could make a version with roughly ~1k parts so that way it is more manageable for lower end devices?

    @Eggplant Technically, it could be considered a memorial post for the whole space shuttle program.

    @keru91239 Thanks <3 I would have but I wanted to be able to control how much it deflects instead of just on/off

    This is amazing, you should try adding the split-brake being controlled by brakes instead of flaps.

    @Eggplant Wrong place to post a masterpiece like this, Juno New origins is the place for these builds. (Disclaimer: I don’t mean this seriously, it’s a joke comment fyi)
