AP models for Real Flight G 4.5

Having hard time deciding what model will be the best for your flying style and your camera ?
Now you can do some testing on Real Flight simulator before spending the money !

After a discussion on romanian FPV - AP forum , this amazing computer guy (pccdtk) produced the model of a classic design: Mike's AP solution !

Hopefully, this will be just the beggining and there will be a few more AP designs modeled for Real Flight in the near future !

You can download the model here :

As I own a Solution and a Supersolution, thanks for this. Very cool.
Now if only I could get someone to make a Hawkeye for Realflight for me...

Yeah, maybe pccdtk can build a Heptad too. He should stick to just Rudder / Elevator though.

Hawkeye can be easily done as a 3D model but I don't know how to set model physics for that .....

Mike would be the guy to talk to regarding this. Does he even know that you built this? Hopefully he chimes in.

Very nice job on the model

Here are my recommendations to anyone that asks me about the Solution.

The plane flys much better (more authority) when the motor is in the tractor config. (motor in front) as opposed to the pusher. The model in the video looks to fly a bit faster than real time. Is the wing 15" X 80" or 13" X 72" ???

Most of the latest Solutions all have 15" X 80" wings with all other parameters the same. The wing loadings with a "normal" point and shoot should be in the 6 to 7 oz/sq in. The DSLR wing loading is 9 to 10 oz/sq in.

The model does not need ailerons...it actually messes with the layout. It will/can turn just as sharp and at very low speeds with just rudder.

Again, great job!


Mike

Hey Tim, do you find much difference between G4.5 and G5? I haven't upgraded yet but am thinking about it. Your video shows your G5 running much smother than my G4.5 but that may be my computer's fault.

Hi Jeff,

This is the first version of Real Flight for me. So, I couldn't tell you what the difference is. I upgraded my wife's computer to a new Dell running Win7, 8 gigs of ram, 1 gig video and the new i7 intel processor. I do all of my video work on that now as it's pretty fast.

Have you figured out the networking function? I can't get mine to work...
