Wow is right. You're only 22, yet you wish you would've gotten into this years ago? When would've that been? I don't think you're going to get alot of sympathy here, kid.

I think you are suppose to model that level and centered with the rest of the plane. RealFlight automatically tilts the spinner for the Down and Right thrust when you add it in the physics. I think that is how it works since I read that some where, but I'm not too sure.

You mean like this, I have 8 deg of down thrust in the motor. RF shows it in the prop, but not the spinner.

That's weird. Is the Spinner linked to the ~CS_Engine? and is it Suppose to be? Like I said I Think that's how its Suppose to be, I'm not 100% sure.

No, you do not link the ~CS_ENGINE to anything. The ~CS_SPINNER is linked first to a ~CS_MOTOR if you have it in the Hierarchy, or in this case it is linked to the FUSELAGE.

I used this link to edit the flight of the CHAMP RTF

Every thing is done but the paint

Kudos on a really nice design job! I am really looking forward to seeing this finished. I have one of the HZ Champs and it really is the champ everybody says it is. I have flown it dozens of times, crashed it a few and no noticeable damage yet! And my only experience was in crashing control line planes many years ago.

When you design the planes, do you determine in advance whether you will have more than one camera view? I have noticed many of the custom planes only have the one viewpoint. I like Chase and First Person as much as the default for variety and would hope those options would be there. Is it an awful lot more work to do?

I am afraid my only 3D experience is with Google Sketchup so real CAD stuff impresses me.

cameras are added in the RF editor. It's something you can do easily. Pick the component, like the fuselage. Right click, select Add, camera component. Position it where you want it.

When I got through setting it up in RF, the edit did not match the plane, so went back into Wings and redid a lot of things, which made a lot of the map no good, so I had to make a new Map. It's all good tho!

Snag

I hit a small prob. I can not get the wire frame wheel to move with the Graphic wheel. The linking is corect in Max. I have tried with and without pivot. Sence the SG is tied to the MMR, I would expect them to move together, because of linking. I could add the pivot back, but I would have to have a pod for the SG. What am I missing here?

Fixed. Had to walk away for a few to let my brain cool down. hehe Changed the linking from the rudder to the fuse, and put the pivot back and centered it on the rud. hinge line, then set the traval to 30 deg the same as the rud.

wheels

This is the second time I painted the wheels and batt. The first time, I imported a new Kex, and well, you guessed it, I said yes to overwrite the CS, then yelled O NO, hehe. But I don't mind, because they turned out better the second time. I had the grand babies all day today, so redoing the wheels and battery is all I got done. I'll hit it hard tomorow.
