Beechcraft 2000 Starship

THE STARSHIP

(From Wikipedia)

The Starship is an Executive transport that can hold six to eight passenger. Development of the Starship began in 1979 when Beech decided to explore designs for a successor to its King Air line of turboprops that would fly faster and carry more passengers.[1] The design was originated by Beechcraft in January 1980 as Preliminary Design 330 (PD 330).[citation needed] Beechcraft President Linden Blue was the executive sponsor of the project at its inception.[citation needed] Max E. Bleck was the Beechcraft President who oversaw its subsequent production. C.R. Stoner, head of Beechcraft’s Experimental division, was the project manager.[citation needed] On August 25, 1982, Beech contracted with Scaled Composites to refine the design and build an 85% scale proof-of-concept (POC) aircraft.[1][2] One of the significant changes made to the design by Scaled Composites was the addition of variable geometry to the canard.[3]

The POC aircraft first flew in August 1983.[4] This aircraft had no pressurization system, no certified avionics, and a different airframe design and material specifications from the planned production Model 2000. Only one POC was built and it has since been scrapped.[1]

Prototypes were produced even as development work was continuing—a system demanded by the use of composite materials, as the tooling required is very expensive and has to be built for production use from the outset. Beech built three airworthy full-scale prototypes. NC-1 was used for aerodynamic testing[4] and had an ejection seat and was the only Starship equipped with conventional electro-mechanical avionics.[5] NC-2 was used for avionics and systems testing and NC-3 was used for flight management system and powerplant testing.[4] NC-1 first flew on February 15, 1986.[4]

The program was delayed several times, at first due to underestimating the developmental complexity and manufacturing learning curve of the production composite construction, and later due to the technical difficulties of correcting a pitch damping problem and developing the stall-warning system. By the end of development, the Starship had grown larger in cabin volume than the King Air 350 while having the same gross ramp weight of 15,010 lb (6,808 kg). Starship development cost $300 million.[6] The first production Starship flew on April 25, 1989

Controls :

VTOL : Flaps
Trim : Trimming (but no details for this, sorry XD)
AG1 : Canard positioning
AG2 : Open the door

How to approach propperly :
AG1
Power 25%
Flaps full
Trim Up

The plane is smol, but the parts aren't mobile friendly XD

ENJOY!

    @nomalnormaltheman itu saya cancel, saya ubah jadi RAI R80 (udah selesai, cek aja di profil) karena R80 bukan hanya Airliner, tapi itu adalah pesawat milik Indonesia yang artinya itu sangat spesial bagi negara ini
