Hello Friends!

Around three-four months ago, I had designed a twin motored Transporter type Aircraft using Depron.

As soon as I started to use RC desk pilot, I created a virtual Model too for RC desk pilot. I call it "Walrus 44"

Hope you enjoy it.

New SGTalon Enterprise D profile foamy

Hello desk pilots,

Here's the first cut of a Trekker's dream Enterprise D for RCDP.



SGTalon created an awesome Trekky RC experience with his Enterprise D.
The model flys a lot like other flat plate airfoils with a bit of high
alpha required to generate the needed lift. Once airborne with the
recommended motor, the model is aerobatic with rolls, loops, stall turns
and harriers.

You can see the RC Groups discussion, plans and build log at:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=881739

Enterprise D video review by ARoundToIt RC:
RC Enterprise D Review and Maiden Flight (7 min 33 sec)


Buy the kits here: http://www.sg-ideas.com/sg-ideas_004.htm

Model Specs are:

AUW: 14.3 ounces with full skins (.4054kg)
Saucer Span: 24" (.61m)
Length: 33.0" (.838m)
Materials: Blue/Pink FFF and carbon fiber airframe.
Motor: TowerPro 2410-12D brushless motor, 24 oz thrust!
ESC: 18A brushless ESC
Prop: 9x5
Batteries: 3 cell 11.1v 1300-1800 mAh 20C LiPoly
Transmitter: 3 channel A/E/T, no mixing required
Servos: Hextronic 9g and 5g, one of each

Please compare this RCDP model to the real version and let
me know what changes need to be made.

What 3D program opens .pdo files? We'd need a file either AC3D, MetasequoiaLE2.1, or Blender can open.

PDO files are Paper Craft Pattern Files which are used to create models out of heavy paper. These files have the .pdo file extension which was developed by the Japanese company Tama Soft.

The Software used is called Pepakura which is available as a Designer which is used to create the patterns and a viewer to open and view them.

A geezer's request

I am not a fan of powered planes but there is one scale model I'd like to see available for the RC Desktop simulator. This plane exudes charisma!!
Due to influence of Blackhawk comic books during my youth, the Grumman Skyrocket (F5F-1) has a firm place in my heart. For really neat color schemes, check out:
http://ourworlds.topcities.com/black...s/f5fmark.html
This geezer would really appreciate tooling a digital version around. BTW, there were only two of the original real airplanes built and they didn't fly as well as those in the comic books. For younger readers, here's what I'm talking about:

Hi all, Really glad i found this sim.

My 5 y/o boy is enjoying flying but rathers using the keyboard than the controller (controller is too big for him). Is there some way i can set it up so i can switch between the keyboard and the controller without having to restart the game.

Thanks in advance.

New Avro Vulcan bomber - camo

Hi flyers! (sic)

Thought I'd share this Vulcan that I made for some folks in FMS land.
The Vulcan seems to fly quite well when built for RC and there
were very few available for the RC sims.

Give this one a try when you get a chance.

Avro Vulcan bomber for RCDP

Nice! Is the Eastbourne modeled after any particular kit? I ask because I am finishing my first balsa build and it is the Pat Tritle Eastbourne. Similar question with the SE5a. Yours is more floaty than my Lanier RC SE5a. Thanks for posting these, lovin' the Eastbourne.

-I remember the pic in your avatar from when I first started in RC groups.
