At the moment you need to have a 3d software package called AutoDesk 3ds Max to create new 3D representations of planes/helicopters which are then imported into G3. Unfortunately this is $3500! (The company I work for paid for the one I use) Knife Edge is trying to work out solution that uses a free 3d software package called GMAX. Just to make it clear if you want to create completely new visual representations of planes/helicopters you will need another piece of software. It goes like this ...

1. create a new plane in 3DS MAX
2. export the plane from 3DS MAX as .KEX file (using the exporter provided by KE)
3. import the .KEX file into RealFlight G3 (.426)
4. define the flight characteristics using the G3 aircraft editior
5. export the new plane for sharing as a .G3X file
