Now I'm really jealous. Our grandbabies are about 5,000 miles away in Hawaii. My wife can't stand not having them near us and I can't afford to keep sending her to Hawaii!

Your model is really outstanding, love the battery detail.

Everything is done, except figureing out how to imulate the texture. Tomorow I will copie the tga and start playing with the texture.

I made some progress on the texture today. Would have been a very good place to use a normal map.

Flexible, that is amazingly good. It looks just like my perception of the foam's texture. The wings of course have more of a smooth paper kind of look to me, but I think you had that already in an earlier pic. I am literally on the edge of my seat watching this progress!

I forgot to ask, I hope this will import into 4.5?

Nunja,

Don't forget that unless Flex has flown this plane the physics may not be right, but I would think a simple model like this would be very close.


Flex, it looks great!

Another nice Flyer,

I understand that the micro J-3 is very similar to the Champ, but maybe the Minium Citabria is closer. The Champ has a good bit of dihedral and corrects itself very well without any "anti-crash" mumbo-jumbo. It will literally land itself hands off, once you get it close enough and kill the throttle. It also glides VERY well.

With neutral trim, if you give it juice it climbs slightly and smoothly. It also handles light wind better than the J-3 (I have been told). The demo video from HobbyZone really shows it well.

Lovin' it!
Only thing that was a bit unsettling at first is the rudder operating on the left stick instead of the right.

I know I could change it with mapping, but I think I need to go ahead and get used to it where it is for when I "graduate" to ailerons.

The plane's behavior is pretty dang spot on compared to the real thing, too. Trying it out in different APs now.

Thanks Flexible! This is a very nice job.

(Apparently, I have not been here long enough yet to rate it, but I think you should get a few 10s for sure.)

This seems to have disappeared from the swap pages after v3.5. Does that mean anything, like whether it would be useable with v7?

Thanks. (Brand new here and to the sport, 1st post, toe in water, v7 simulator "in the mail".)
