Unhappy Making an aircraft appear larger than default

I posted this in the RF8 forum but didn't get a response.
Hopefully this isn't considered a double post, but I'm sure there must be a way
to do what I'm asking, especially from the guys who design aircraft.
I fly aircraft only, and my question pertains to aircraft.

I can't remember or find in the manual how to make a particular saved/edited aircraft
appear bigger in the sim than it really is as the default.
I hope that makes sense.

Thanks for any help or ideas.

Take care
Bob

Change graphical scale, but will need a lot of physics modifying to fly realistically.

Thanks for the reply, but when I do that, it only changes the size in the edit window, and not on the flying field.
Am I doing something wrong?
I do save it before exiting to the program.

Thanks for the ideas
Bob

If you open the editor after saving your change does the vehicle graphical scale show the change you made (like changing it from 100% to 125%)?

If you're only changing it a small amount it's hard to see in RealFlight so try changing it from 100 to 200 and see if the plane looks larger.

Yes, it does get larger in the editor, but not on the runway.
Can it be my machine or something?

Thanks for the help

Well that's a hard one but I don't think it's your machine. Like I said change the size from 100 to 200 and see if you can tell the difference. It's hard to see small changes to a planes size in RealFlight.

You're right.
It's doing what it's supposed to.
I stand corrected and thank you for the help.

Take care

If you want to increase the physics to match it takes a lot of learning and tweaking to get it right. It can be challenging but fun. It took me years to learn all the tricks from various people here.

I haven't used this tutorial but I've seen it posted a few times to people asking about physics so give it a look and see if it helps.
