Project homepage with changelog and recent testing version: http://takhadnotor.github.com/kodiak

Summary of this Thread:

We, a friend and me, are trying to build a model of the Quest Kodiak for FG. We are looking for experienced developers who are willing to help.
Blueprints and exact datas have been requested from Quest Aircraft and we have gotten some drawings.
The Kodiak is a modern STOL turboprop single built to be a back-country aircraft to help in areas in which humanitaire help is needed. Information about this aircraft you find via Google on the world wide web or on the homepage of Quest Aircraft: http://questaircraft.com

Avionyx got excited to create some sounds.

Status of development:
Done work: FDM (takhadnotor), 3D-Model (roughly done by Silvester)
In progress of work: 3D-Model (Silvester), Sounds (Avionyx), autopilot (takhadnotor)
Work needed: panel, livery, autopilot, getting more detailed information, etc.

Thank you for your help!

Hello everyone,

I am the friend of takhadnotor and my part is the 3D-Model. At the moment, I don't have blueprints of the Kodiak, so if anyone of you has blueprints, please contact me!

At the moment we are trying to contact STC which created a professional flight simulator of the Kodiak. The should have some blueprints and exact datas.
We are still looking for a developer who is willing to give us some tips and hints...

I'll look forward to helping with the sounds guys, I'm on it right now. Digging out all my P&W PT6A-34 sound bytes for sampling.

Remember that this is only a prototype, there will be many changes until the final version.

I look forward to flying this model. Need more testers?

Here's another interesting bush plane I'd like to see in FG:
