An AeroScout I made in AC3D.

I made this in AC3D, and was wondering if someone would want to put it into RF ?

It looks like there is no FBX export for AC3D so you will need to export plane to Student version of 3dsmax (you don't need to be a student) or another program with a fbx exporter.

Thanks, I got the model in RF8, but it's real tiny and backward. Turning it around is easy, but how much to scale it up ?

Thanks. I got it scaled (very new to MAX) a bit of creasing issues, other than that it looks good. I'm using the Eflite Apprentice physics for now. How are the groups for animations and damages done, in MAX or RF8 ?

Having a problem with the Nose steering.

The pivot works correctly in the X axis in Max, but it rotates along the Y axis in RF.

All looks good, but plane just sits on runway at full power. Lifts up and moves forward about a 1/2 inch. Any suggestions ?
