Blender users

Is there anyone that has used Blender to design a plane for RF? I am messed up with the lexicon they use to define what RF calls pivot points. I have my plane fully designed, but now I have to define the "hinges", and I really don't understand what object element should I use, besides parenting.
Any help will be appreciated.

There is one person that I know of that uses blender, but he's not here very often, bosshawg is his username so you can try messaging him.. Otherwise you can look at the student version of Max and I'm sure one of the other modelers here will help you.

Thank you csgill.

I am waiting for a 3dmax sw response, however, I would like to figure out Blender, as I already got familiar with it.
Will try to contact bosshawg, and see how things develop.

Kind regards.
