no need for crossed fingers, you have to thumbs up here. rolling is very comanding on stick but otherwise it is a lovely bird, looks very nice in the air and feels sweet. i have notice rudder may want some extra throws dialed in, i found it a little weak.

the cabin interior wicked job there looking just as it should if build from balsa

one more problem, aerlions placed so they overhang wing tip, looks like the wing had added flight tip feathers like a eagle.

it is a very nice flyer i had fun right from the start, loop the loop was easy but needed plenty of throttle command, rudder flying gives a very slow banking turn nice for training, roll's are hair raising in a dive and very nice. i love it !!

Waw! That's a gorgeous model! The 3D model is absolutely perfect! Love the paintjob and the prop.

I've made some slight modifications to the flightmodel that I've PM'd to you.

Keep up the excellent work!

oops, I just fixed the zip file.
I'm in a habit of making copies before I make changes, so the overhanging tips are from the "mullicoupe_copy.par" files. There were two copies, so just erase those and leave the one mullicoupe.par.

Thanks for the comments TamyiaCowboy. I'm still tweaking the flight parameters, so that will help.

I'm glad you like it. Cheers

Thanks again also to Davy

Hi, thanks for trying the editor.
The error is related to permissions and will (hopefully) be fixed in the next beta (which I'm working on atm). The workaround:
- run the editor as administrator (right click and "run as administrator")
- modify the permissions of the aircraft folder: browse to the RCDP installation folder (c:\program files\rc desk pilot). Right click on the aircraft folder, select properties, open the 'security' tab, click the 'modify...' button, select "Users" from the top list and check "Full control" in the bottom list.

Hope this helps,
Davy

Google sketchUp to DirectX converter plugins


Sorry guys if this is a dull question but I'm new to model SIM .

I played with RC desk pilot SIM and it looks really cool.


Is it possible to design models using Google Sketchup ?

I found a couple of plugins to export from SU into directx

THIS and THIS.

Can somebody give me some clue how to use the .x file with the RC desk pilot aircraft editor, I cannot open the directix file whit it.

Thank you

I am not familiar with SU or those exporters. For a clue you might try opening the .x file with a text editor like notepad to view the contents. Compare the text to another .x file from RCdeskpilot.
Most of the .x files used in RCdeskpilot are asci based so you can see the file structure. The only unreadable file is the bird.x file which contains hex, for animation (I believe).

If your looking for a free 3D editor MetasequioaLE2.4 will "save as" in the .x format.
If you use vista or 7 meta2.4 says it does not support Vista, but it works fine for my vista...well mostly.

MINI TUTORIAL Google SketchUp & RC desk pilot SIM


Well I discovered some more TIPS using the RC Desk pilot editor.

To change the model view just press the F1 , F2 and F3 button on the keyboard.

Next challenge is to find the way to add the movable parts (rudder, ailerons, elevator etc.).

Thank you very much for your small tutorial Franky. I'm looking forward to seeing the end-result. Don't forget to look in the manual/tutorial included with the installation when you're stuck. It should explain everything.

I want to thank everyone for their feedback on the editor. I've made and will make some improvements to the sim and editor as a result of it. Also a thank you to ggunners and Eves for their excellent planes and ggunners' help fixing a problem with ultra micro models.

With the professional advice of Metman (another big thank you) I've also made some changes to the wind/thermal code that I hope the glider pilots will enjoy. With these changes thermals are a bit more realistic and slope soaring becomes an option. I've made a short video to demonstrate the latter. This will become available shortly when I've prepared another beta.

Have a great weekend!
Davy

GeneralFailure , very nice option and video.

You are right, most of the tips are in the manual (for those who read manuals).
I'm a lazy man.

I tested the model not connecting my radio Tx to the PC.
As you can see on checking the TEST flight mark makes the model starts moving side way.

How can I fix it ?

Thanks.

Hi Franky, the problem is the obvious one: the mesh is rotated 90. Rotate the mesh in Google Sketchup 90 counterclockwise before exporting and it should be fine. In the editor your plane should point left after pressing F1.

Cheers,
Davy
