Balsa Model Flight Simulator has taken off into Early Access on Steam for Windows, offering a 10% launch discount for the coming week. This is the brainchild of Felipe "HarvesteR" Falanghe, who first helped us struggle with the gravity of the situation as creator and lead designer of Kerbal Space Program. Here's a new trailer showing off the incredible lightness of being balsa. Here are some details:
