Compatible With: FSX (Intended for use with FS Design Studio v3.5)

Several years in the writing, Adam Howe has released the first of five "books" that will guide the modeler from the basics to the advanced stages of aircraft design using FS Design Studio v3.5.

The goal of this book is to show you how to use the functions of FS Design Studio to create an aircraft. In finishing the series, you will be have created a complete aircraft that can be flown in Microsoft's Flight Simulator X. From there, you can brag to your friends that you made it yourself. Armed with this knowledge, you can then venture out and design your own aircraft using the knowledge and experience you've gained from this series of book.

This first book in the series will show you how to install FS Design Studio v3.5, the FSX Software Development Kits (SDKs) and their service packs as well as set up FS Design Studio to properly use the SDKs. From there the book covers how to find and set up 3-view drawings as backdrops from which you can forge your design.

Other Books in the Aircraft Design Guide series include:

 

  • Book 2: Modeling the Exterior
  • Book 3: The Boolean Operation

Customer Reviews
JUSTFLIGHT - PA-28-161 WARRIOR FSX
Austen
Accurate simulation of a real Piper Warrior. The aircraft model is outstanding. Having flown the actual aircraft, all the functionality is there. Even the engine sounds like the real deal. Would definitely recommend this product for anyone training on this aircraft as you are able to go through the entire real world checklist and practice stalls/emergenc-
y procedures.
FLYFREESTD - SUKHOI SU-27/27UB FLANKER-B/C FSX
Austen
Finally a Flanker that is worth purchasing! -
I've been searching for a SU-27 for FSX for a while now and have finally found a quality one. Both external and interior models are very well done. The external model has that shiny look that comes with quality models. The interior seems to be a fairly accurate representation of the real world cockpit. All the instruments and switches are in the correct Russian. My only complaint is that not all the switches are interactive, but nevertheless all the important ones are. The avionics reflect the 1980s design of this aircraft, so don't expect to navigate using modern tech. Basic nav and autopilot functions are all there along with a simple waypoint pointer. Flying the SU-27 is a welcome change compared to the typical western fighter. Can confirm you are able to perform the cobra maneuver, but make sure to turn off the AoA limiter. Ove-
rall, I would highly recommend checking this product out if you are looking for a SU-27.

SCENERYTR - LTAC ANKARA ESENBOĞA AIRPORT FSX/P3DV4
Jens
I have been to Esenboga many times, and it looks very realistic. I am very impressed, and the performance is great too. That the Ataturk museum, which is located in the city south of the airport and visible when approaching to the north, is a great detail. Fantastic value. Thanks a lot.

ALPHA DESIGNS - ATC CHATTER SOUND PACK FSX P3D X-PLANE 10/11
Phil
Well, it’s a start! As someone who wants an easy to use product this fits the bill, it works seamlessly in the background. In Europe,though, there didn’t seem to be much by way of English or German speaking ATC, have I missed something? It’s inexpensive and gives some extra immersion so I’m not going to criticise. Hopefully it can be expanded with additional sounds because the concept, not new I know, works well in P3d...
FSPS - FFTF DYNAMIC P3D4
Stephen
I picked it up after coming across an avsim thread and seeing a number of positive comments.Wasn't expecting much but I will go on record saying it definitely works as promised. You can the sim, display the fps, start FFTF Dynamic, and watch them jump up as high as 10 in certain areas. One thing that's important to realize is this isn't a cure for a poorly optimized sim. You still need to run settings your machine is capable of hitting, but it's a safe, low cost enhancement to squeeze out a bit more perf without cfg tweaks or constant edits.
JUSTSIM - EUROAIRPORT BASEL MULHOUSE FREIBURG - P3D4.4+
Terblanche
ONCE AGAIN, excellent scenery from JustSim. A fully GSX file for the airport is on its way from the developer and then the scenery will truly come alive. Love the PBR effects and the glass reflections are just super duper. A very large area around the airport is also covered that gives a very nice view when approaching this airport in Switzerland with a French ICAO code on the German border. I'm looking forward to make this my hub for a while and do flights in and out of this airport with different aircraft. It's very well priced and a must-have if you are flying (like me) most of the time in Europe.
