We Need Scale Helicopters

With all the additional poly and capability... we really could use some excellent detailed military helicopters. Civilian too. I know that this is asking a lot.

What companies are you referring to? Bell Helicopter?

Can't we do all American military helicopters without a license? I know of some issues.... but ?? Isn't there some fair use, if it is not for profit?

Unlike knife edge, we don't have the same copyright restrictions on the content we create. If we did most of the aircraft on the Swap pages wouldn't be allowed.

As far as payware aircraft from other simulators being ported to realflight, it's kind of a gray area.

Yes, I would agree that porting X-Plane aircraft into Real Flight would be wrong. You have to recognize, it is becoming easier to do so. Just as with software, 3D artists need to recognize that anything can be stolen on the computer.

FSX aircraft to be exact, I converted like 5 or 6 helicopters. I'm not the original author of them, I just modified them to work with RF, so can't share them.

Well Johnny, I was talking more about starting from scratch, but I am interested in the process you underwent to move from FS-X to RF-X. I also have many helicopters that I paid for in FS-X. Maybe, that would be easier and help until I get good with the heli creation process. I am not going to share others work. I agree with your stand on IP rights.

Don't let all this get away from the fact that we need more Scale Helicopters. History is rich with beautiful helicopters. Military and Civilian.

Outlined the process of converting FSX aircraft in this thread.

I agree though. Some original content would be cool, I sadly don't have time for modeling anymore.
