I don't know if someone has made this before as I couldn't find one on the swap pages but could someone make a ver 6 450 Pro with training gear or could you let me know how to attach trainig gear to an existing ver 5.5 one.

As I am learnig on the 450 pro useing training gear so I would like one to be the same Please.:)

Just use the Dominion.

It's better to learn with a larger heli before moving to your small one.

You'll not want to fly your real 450 with the training balls anyway.

Yep but I would still like to have one as I fly mine with the training gear on as I am only learning basic hovering and orientation etc and that way it would react the same way as my real one

UMX Gee Bee R2 with AS3X Technology

I would like to request the "UMX Gee Bee R2 with AS3X Technology" for RF-6.

There is a larger EP one on the Swap,...and I did what I could to Scale things and took many shots at the Physics items,..however, I do not have the knowledge to really get it RIGHT.

There ia a EP Gee Bee R2 with 66" wingspan in RF-6.

So, I, and others I believe, would really appreciate someone taking this on.

Many Thanks to All of you Modelers and Flight Physics Engineers for what you have done over the years to provide us that which we take and see at the Fields as is!

BTW: There is a "UMX Beast with the AS3X Technology" which is an amazing likeness to the Actual R/C Model which I own as well!

If your model already exists for RF, there is no reason to make a new one. You could resize a 108" plane to a 42" plane in the physics editor. If your plane is painted a different color, then a new CS could be made. The 3D model has nothing to do with how the plane flies. Do what you can to tweak the physics yourself. Look at other models for help, like the feature you mentioned. The person who best knows how your model should fly is you!!

Roger That Jeff!,

I will do what you suggest,...I had completely forgotten about the new Physics Editor by Percentages.

Thanks for Helping once again!,

Anyway,....Its about time I learn how to do some of these items in an "Open Source"
piece of Simulation Software that I have been using since its inception.

Newb, Skywalker questions/request please

Hello,

I'm a newb, and starting to get a fpv itch. I saw that there was two versions the Skywalker but they were for 5.5, I am running rf6 (up to date). When flying these aircraft it seems like I am fighting them a lot to keep the heading straight and in turns its even worse. It seems like the only time I can get the plane to fly some what correct is full throttle and that even seems to be tough.

Are models designed for 5.5 compatible with 6 if not is it because of the physics?

If the plane needs to be re worked for 6.0 would someone be willing to do that? It would be greatly appreciated!

I really want to buy a skywalker and set it up for fpv but I need to buy everything. (I only own a blade msrx rtf, I had some zagi gear but my parents trashed it after I left for the military). In the mean time while I'm acquiring/building, it would be nice to get the feel of it before the maiden.

If there is anything that is needed from me please let me know!

Thank you!!
Chris

The only thing I can tell you is to tinker away. Physics really isn't my strong suit, but I did do the physics entirely on that model, if I recall. In the aircraft editor, save a copy of that file under a new name, and try your hand at adjusting the variables. Turning on the advanced editor will give you access to everything that can be changed. Happy editing!

Kwik Fli Mk III

This is a request for the Kwik Fli Mk III by Phil Kraft.

Did find an article with 3 views and pictures

http://time.fh-augsburg.de/~erd/Modellflug/download/KwikFli.pdf

Yes, it's a Reflex article.... But hopefully it is enough for the designers to work with.
Preferences:
Electric power
Orange color scheme
Retracts
Also noticed one of their versions added flaps, but I am not aware if they were ever in the original.

Decide what you want with flaps, and why there's several 3-views in that document. I can do this one after my current build.

PS - Somebody get my back and make sure this doesn't already exist in some form. :eek:)

Thanks Jeff!

While I haven't read that entire report, the author seems to be giving an overview of the Kwik Fli series, with included Relfex model references. So some views are apparently from different originally published sources.

3 View:
I think the image on page 10 gives you the best overall info.

Flaps:
Simply extending the aileron width to the inside as shown on page 21 seems ok. That image is from a Mk IV, but it's the same idea. The Mk III 3 view from page 10 clearly shows the rib locations, so that should help you.

Thanks again!

Hello Everyone.

This is my first post! Yay me... anyway... I have a question about a custom paint scheme for an existing airplane in RF6. I actually would like to get one of the airplanes in RF6 made into a file with the paint scheme on the real aircraft that I own. I'd like to take the Great Planes Stearman PT-17 and have it designed with the colors on my actual Stearman. Is this possible?

Thanks guys, i know that it has probably been asked a million times before, but i'm going blind searching for the answer.

Jeff, on page 4 of that article, (second paragraph) there is a cleaner 3-view that you may find useful, if you end up doing the modeling ;)

That's why I asked, UT. I skimmed through the .pdf and found several 3-views. Are they the same? Are they different? Like I said, I'll let the requestor figure that out!! I'm just a dumb modeler!

Gibson, yes, it is poss. post some pictures of the top, bottom, and both sides. maybe someone will pick it up

Jeff, the 3-view I was referring to was a link, not a pic.Did you see that one ?? The others are of a Mk1 or 2 and/or the Bar fli (at the end of the art.)

Nice plane Gibson :cool:. A pic. of the RT. side would be nice, UNLESS it`s exactly the same as the left.The only other things someone could use are straight on closeups of ANY/ALL the graphics and nose art without any glare in the photos.What you have posted so far is good enough for someone to start with.Details can be added later.I might do it ?? I`ll know for sure in a couple days.:D;)
Edit, Is the Stearman that you`re referring to, from Exp. pack 2 ??, it`s not on the #6 main menu (All I got was the upgrade) no mega pack for me.
Edit #2, I might add, that there is a Stearman with a cowl and pants available on the swaps, you should check it out
