It's been a long time since I went over any of that stuff, but I'm sure I would have notes laying around somewhere since I'm one of the world's worst pack rats.

It may take a good couple of years to find any notes, but considering there is a way to do this, the internet may have instructions somewhere on how to do it. The instructor that showed me how to do this was Scott Rittinger. He is awesome at what he does.

Most of the guys flying these things, only make left turns, so makeing one wing shorter makes it stay in a turn, hehe.

prob

I first ran into this on the Calmato 40. I took the easy way out, just changed the background color to a color I could pass off as being on the horns.
Now I want to do it corectely. I thought I could ungroup them to assign the tga, then group them back. I can not find a way to do dat.

Don't combine them, just link them. Linked parts will follow the motion of the parent.

Had to go back to Wings for a few, so I decided to add the gear on the spinner shaft.
I had to cut off the lable face for the bat, so it could be assigned with the rest of the parts, and keep the rest of the bat off the map.
I had a lot of down thrust in the spinner, but RF did not like it that way. I tryed the pivot both level, and with matching down thrust
