In editing the Pond Racer I see many details in the aircraft design that would impact flight characteristics. In order to incorporate those details in the simulation it may be necessary to utilize this option. I,ll post my AV soon.
I am well aware of this as it is needed to make an EA from scratch. You should see a custom homemade aircraft when you first import it into RFas a KEX file. It's wire frame starts out you out with a default. Almost looks like a Nexstar or something like it. You then have to reshape it to match the visual model. Which can be very time consuming. This also includes shaping the control surfaces and setting up things like landing gear. Lets not forget the control surface throws and CG location. You also have to set up your engine(s)/motor(s), prop(s) diameter and pitch , battery or fuel tank size, sound profile, and about a hundred other things I left out like setting up the radio software. Some planes like dhk79's awsome F-16 have very complecated mixes just to do the simplest things like moving the slats on the front of the wings. Or how about Inky00's F-100 with bombs that drop off with the flick of a switch.
Trust me most the models you get off of the swaps the designer has already given you a HUGE head start as far as the physics go.
But, for exsample say if I had real one of these and knew it tip stalled really bad yeah I would go in and crank up the "stall severity" . But like I said before I had nothing to compare it to other then a video I found online.
