View Full Version : How to alter a model?

08-14-2014, 02:10 AM
Hi and greetings to you all.

After a long time of using Phoenix i recently got RF7/ I love it, what a nice program and what a community behind it.:D

What i am trying is to alter an exsting model from tri-cycle into taildragger. I also want to change the power of the engine and the prop size? Even want to add flaps?

That way it looks and react as my own plane
Is this possible? I have search the internet and these pages but can't find the right tutorial. Want to change the model sensei flyzone.

Engine should be an NTM3548 900kv and a 11x5.5 APC prop.

Is this possible and can someone provide me of a link with instructions or a tutorial?

Regards from the Netherlands :)

You can modify the physics of any model using the editor.

You can not modify how the plane looks, nor the landing gear, etc.

To modify the appearance of a plane you need the original 3D model. Most modelers do not give out their own source work and commercial vendors never do so.

If you want to modify the looks of a model you really have to start over and design your own 3D model from scratch.

There are plenty of resources here and stickies about what you need and how to get started.
