REQUEST: Beechcraft Starship, please?

Recommended Posts

I'll take this opportunity to thank those who read and responded to my request some time ago for a Tu-95 Bear for FS2K2. What resulted was very well done, and I'm sure many others enjoyed a lot of happy hours flying them, as I did. Thanks to all of you who work so hard to make new fun things for us to fly. I hope there's someone out there who likes the Starship. I had forgotten about that thing until quite recently, when a very different turboprop sound from above prompted me to look up and see a Starship inbound for Saint Paul's Holman Field. Unusual and impressive a/c. The last virtual one's for FS98, so it's time to take advantage of the FS2K2 possibilities and make one, don't ya think? So, I'll hope you get inspired to do a good one. I can say that it sounds very much like the Piaggio P-180 thing, since I'd seen and heard one of those not long ago. I've never flown one, but I'll be happy to help someone beta-test it if you need help. I'm a former pilot, but now disabled, homebound, so I have entirely too much time to fly. Life is good! Happy landings, everyone........ -dogbert

There was someone working one one some time ago. I don't know what happened to him or his plane. It looked very promising. Maybe he will read this post and respond.Later,Udo.:-wave

I found and downloaded the Starship for FS2K2.The only problem I had was that it appers that a GPS instrument in the panel doesn't want to load so I have to disable it when FS2K4 gives me the error (otherwise everything hangs).What would it take to update this gorgeous plane so that it's 2K4-compliant? (i.e. replacing the GPS I'd imagine)Or is there an update I don't know about?Thanks in advance.
