FSX Space Shuttle

Complete with Base ModelJump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details

Not a realistic flying vehicle but just an interesting way to check out the new FSX space views. Included save flight offers a simulated liftoff with appropriate animations. By Ron Jeffers.

First off this is only an interesting way to check out the FSX space views and is not to be meant as a challenge flight. As the aircraft is totally controlled from (Houston Control!) or the cfg file. So anyway, (don't try to fly it as it ascends) the save flight puts you already after Liftoff over Cape Canaveral and headed up. The shuttle is animated and effect timed to do a roll and booster and fuel tank separation on the way up. Plus the effects will cut off when you reach orbit altitude. When you are above 600 thousand feet then you are good as for orbit. You may then hit the (Y) key on your keyboard to go into (Slew) mode. Then hold down an appropriate (arrow) key on the keyboard to set a direction of orbit. Then you can control the shuttle with the arrow keys and other keys to rotate ect.
