Golden Age Simulations Kinner B-2 Sportwing - now free

Recommended Posts

I'm enjoying this aircraft. I'm currently flying the Route 66 flightplans on Flightsim.to. Very appropriate for this old bird, methinks. I do wish someone would make a few more liveries for it, though.

Is it perfect? No, but it's fun and the price is right.

I think, i will add it to my NeoFly-Fleet for tourist-tours !

 

BTW a nice moove from the developer to make this free: best advertisement for upcoming Stearman f.e. and turning the upcoming rage into an overall good mood.

@ and if this bird feels nice, there will be a donation, and if it is just for encouraging other devs to take the same approach !

I was able to dump the chocks, but how did you get rid of the tie-downs?? Mine are quite persistant. - very embarrasing!

The control is hidden away in the task bar camera settings.

GAS published an entire video walkthrough showing all the aspects of the aircraft, so unlike say the Typhoon or the 737MAX....even the very first people to buy had the opportunity to know exactly what they were going to get.  So I found the reaction to it a bit extreme even to me. 

If a developer wants to do a portover of stuff from a prior sim and make a video showing people exactly what it is and then sell that, with full disclosure, I don't see any issue.  Showing 5 screenshots of the best angles on Simmarket when there are issues elsewhere, that's another story.....

With a little bit of PBR render pipeline magic ported models can look pretty good.

Actually, one of the models in the package looks to be a copy of an actual plane flown here in New England,  He got the basic layout pretty well but just too bad the resolution wasn't better.

Yes it is and deserving of a brush up on the textures inside!  It's already flying well and the panel layout looks accurate.

The MSFS one seems to be based on this restored example, not the version for sale in that photo which presumably was a different variant of the B2:

For those that like this genre, and are a little more adventurous, I always liked Craig Richardsons work. His later stuff seems more like payware, and it will port, with a little work, just fine into MSFS. The Dart Kitten is an example, and just needed some help with the glass. The Camel is exceptional too. But they have to be FSX native.

The Kitten is great, I agree.  But how did you overcome the opaque external glass.
