Freeware Project Tupolev Tu-154B2 for FSX (beta)

It has been released a few days ago. Native FSX model, new VC with 3D gauges, several cockpit options ('70s, '90s). For those who haven't heard about it, Project Tupolev was the best and most sophisticated freeware aircraft for FS9, and I dare say it was better than 90% of payware aircraft for that sim.Bear in mind, that it's still a beta release and has a steep learning curve. It's definitely not for people that simply want to hit the autostart and immediately get in the air. But it already works well and has more features that some well known payware vintage jets .Go get it at: http://www.protu-154...pic.php?t=12373Couple of shots:

Finally! Been following the progress for a long time now. Kirill was always dropping hints on how far they are along. Great to see that they have reached a releaseable beta stage! Kirill certainly improved in his modeling. I'm quite impressed! Can't wait to see them releasing more Russian oldies.

Hi Tom,I can tell you even though I didn't much use the FS9 version due to a weird issue with my yoke not working properly, that I printed a step by step check list using tutorial photos of how each step was to be taken and printed them out. That was the only way I ever got the aircraft started. As advanced as I am with turbo props, 737's and A320's, this my friend was the most challenging I've ever taken on. Once you do it several times, you will find things become a lot easier. I do hope one day that they make an english version VC option like Suprunov did with their Yak40. The FSX version looks really nice. I may revisit this aircraft again. I'm sure there are still posts on how to operate the aircraft in the forums over there. I would assume even the FS9 version stuff will help you with the FSX version as they are the same aircraft. hope this helps.Best, Jeff

It's the best freeware plane on the market! This sim was approved for training in Russia. And a beauty! Fantastic machine to fly. I've got it in FSX but have forgotten all the procedures, is there an English voice pack for the crew for FSX?
