https://www.orbithangar.com/showAddon.php?id=ed2c618f-41c7-49f5-86f3-503f46f9eff3

The Saocom1B satellite, and the two rideshare small sats Gnomes1 and Sequoia(generic meshes).
Launch scenario for 30th Aug 2020. Rare Polar orbit launch from Cape Canaveral.
Manual steering adjustment required after fairing separation - set Falcon9 autopilot inclination to -97.86,
or fly it manually (see notes). 1st stage flyback and landing at LZ1 enabled. FRV on station for fairing recovery.

Requires "Falcon9 for Orbiter2016"

Updated on OH: version 200829

Removed SEQUOIA (now scheduled for Electron launcher)
Changed initial Falcon9 target inclination to -70.00deg for 160deg launch azimuth (as implied by reports on the interweb).
Changed fairing recovery vessel position accordingly (close to reported pos).

Plane change (dogleg) can be made by changing Falcon9 target inclination to -97.96deg when upper stage reaches latitude 24.5N (for good alignment with dawn/dusk terminator).

Launch date will probably slip, but no info yet.
Cheers,
Brian
