Project Stratosphere released this week a new model of the Kitfox for Microsoft Flight Simulator: the Kitfox Speedster Series 7.
This project from the Indian team of developers brings to the simulator the latest model of the Kitfox family. The Series 7 was introduced twenty years ago, featuring some improvements over the previous incarnations.
Fans of Kitfox airplanes have been lucky to enjoy a spectacular offering for MSFS by the talented team at //42, and now there’s a new contender in town for the same aircraft. Well, not exactly the same, because //42’s version depicts the aircraft’s Series 5, which is a bit older. Furthermore, the Speedster version now released by Project Stratosphere should be a bit speedier, with a shorter wing and higher cruise speed.
This new Kitfox appears to be a decent contender in the category, with initial buyers praising the overall experience and placing it somewhere between the BT Studio Kitfox, the worse of the bunch, and the //42 version, which remains on top as the best Kitfox airplane for MSFS so far. The new Series 7 even comes with a few nifty tricks, like a smoke effect that can be activated with a switch behind the seat.
The Speedster Series 7 has been out for just a couple of days, but the developer has given good signs in terms of support for the product. Users have complained about a few key areas, which will now be the focus of the developer’s attention over the next few weeks.
Updates are expected to be dropped frequently, fixing and improving the areas that need the most attention such as the sounds, fuel flow, texturing on some surfaces, and more.
