Thanks

Im sorry I just started using this forum and I'm kind new to forums so thanks for the help and sorry about the huge picture. Does anybody else think all of the vtols I mentioned are good ideas. They will be challenges to make but they could be tons of fun to fly.

There is no such thing as a bad idea.
The challenge is finding someone(or yourself) to create it.
Give it a try ("I don't know how" doesn't fly around here) There are plenty of tutorials available to learn.

Good Luck.

Thanks

I would like to make my own planes. The kemax doesn't work on my computer, Or it maybe that I am not setting it up right. I know this is a request forum but can anybody help me with getting the software working on my computer. I would really appreciate it. I really want to start making my own planes.

How to build your own models

There are a lot of tutorials in this forum, here's a start.

Kemax is not the program you use to build aircraft, just one part of the process.

Starting out

Hey dima what software setup are you using for the project your working on I want to start making planes but the tutorial is giving me links that don't work. Can you send me an email or something. I have no clue what to do. I was kinda turned off to the idea of complicated software. I just want something easy to set up and use. If you could help that would be great.

Uhhh, Well the titlebar in his screenshot says "Wings3D" I'm pretty sure that was mentioned in the tutorials you read.

Which links aren't working by the way?

Thanks guys

It never mentions what software to download. I know it is hard to do but I need a free setup to make simple planes. If you can post some good free software links that would be great. I guess I need to know exactly what I need. What software is easiest to use? Most of the "useful links" are tutorials not software downloading sites.

Sorry I seem like an idiot about this but it is a very complicated process but
I have found a wings 3D for dummies tutorial and I will go by that for now on. Thanks for the help and support.
