I made two mistakes with this piece.
- I put it on a higher energy trajectory by accident, and ended up getting to Jool like 80 days ahead of the other two ships, which wasted fuel.
- As you can see, I didn’t aerobrake enough. I should have come around for another pass to lower the periapsis more.
Consequently, there was barely enough fuel to get into Bop orbit, I burned it all plus most of the RCS. I had to through the empty fuel cannister overboard, although I’d been planning to save it to convert the skycrane into a tanker.
