comment Usefulness of SSTOs and spaceplanes
SSTO/Spaceplanes are completely nerfed, IMHO. Their part requirements (and the science and funds to unlock them) totally diminishes their cost savings. The Rapier is usually the last part you unlock and by then (end game) funds aren't at a premium so you might as well use a rocket. Also, getting rockomax-scale parts into orbit is child's play with rockets.

comment Is Terminal Velocity important in KSP 1.0+?
I like this answer. It's funny, but it can't be accurate. If a vessels has a starting TWR above about 3 it will explode due to dynamic pressure and heating. I know because I've done it... many times. Throttles are for sissies.

comment Efficient solar panel placing strategy
@SergiiZaskaleta The optimal way to place them is one set of 4 and then offset the next set by 45 degrees on the far side of the vessel. That way, if it faces directly into the sun, you'll get all 8 panels in full sunlight and you can minimise overlap. Three-way symmetry will fulfill the requirements for most vessels, heck, two-way symmetry will work 99% of the time. Six or Eight is even better, but remember that some panels will block others if you have a high symmetry. But I think 4 has a nice ascetic and fulfills the requirements of the questions, that's why I recommend it.

comment Efficient solar panel placing strategy
This can't be true. A functioning science lab uses 5 units of electricity per second and the Minmus' night lasts 5hours. 7200 unit batteries won't last. Do the math, and this can't be right.

comment When should I perform the inclination matching maneuver?
Once you know what you're doing, I recommend using MechJeb to avoid the tedium of minor course corrections. I have 700+ hours of KSP under my belt and I use MechJeb to perform simple course corrections like fine tuning planetary (or satellitic) intercept. These are best done at high transition nodes (usually half way between LKO and Minmus).
