User-Built Models for PhoenixRC


Seems to me that a thread about user-built PhoenixRC models might be useful.
There are other folks building their own models, so perhaps this might be a place to trade experiences and share models.

Hey guys,
Any of you computer geniuses build me a Pilatus Porter PC-6.....1600-1800mm W/S ? The other one I would like is the Taft Dornier Do-27 w/1600mm w/s. For use with Phoenix 5 or RF-7.5. At 71, my computer comprehension level is just adequate enough to get by. Attached are links. Thanks.....

F7F for your Enjoyment


Took a break from the Pilatus to finish the F7F.

A big thank you to BSquared18 for finding a great 3D model as a starting point.
Originally created by Jacque Brault for X-Plane, Bill converted it into an OBJ file importable into Blender.
It was much more sophisticated than my creation, so I switched horses.
After a reasonable amount of Blender and PhoenixBuilder work I ended up with v27 which is attached.

To install, unzip F7F_v27.zip to your PhoenixBuilder\Test\Models directory.
In PhoenixRC under Model.Change.Testing.Airplanes.Scale, you should then see a plane named "F7F v27” .

A PhoenixRC video and a PhoenixBuilder screenshot are below.

Been flying this model a lot and really like it - turned out much better than I expected. But, I NEED SOME HELP.
Would like to publish the F7F through Phoenix, and could use some perspective from you folks out there before I take that step.
So please fly this thing and give me some feedback.

Enjoy, rickp

Note: post #2309 contains a completely new version of the F7F, but I am leaving the original here for old times sake.

Flying Bulls PC-6


Thank you, Denny, for suggesting this project.
Turned out to be a nice airframe, and it's hard to resist the Flying Bulls paint scheme.
Blender and PhoenixBuilder screenshots are attached, as is a video at the Countryside Hill site.
Pretty windy there, and the Pilatus was more stable then anticipated.
Flown on low rates - nicely aerobatic at high rates.
Also attached is a zip file of the model if anyone would like to try it out.

Enjoy, rick p

PS: You may install this model in either the Phoenix Test or Normal Menus.
To install it in Phoenix Test Menus, unzip PC 6 v77_RB.zip to your PhoenixBuilder\Test\Models directory.
To install it in the Phoenix Normal Menus, unzip and install the PKG file as a Phoenix update.

Beech Model 17 Staggerwing


Had pretty much made up my mind to develop a Catalina PBY as my next model and had even set up reference drawings in Blender.
Then something made me remember the Beech Staggerwing I saw at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum a few years ago.
Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful aircraft ever designed, I couldn't resist creating a model.
The final project should look something like the attached picture.

Hey Rick,
You do some nice work. I watched the new PC-6 Red Bull vid you posted....a gasser. Yes... I downloaded it. Now I can fly both elec. & gas. Thanks for your interest to provide some very unique planes not available from the sim developers.

Thanks Denny!
WRT gas - I just kinda like the smoke trail in the sim.
You can easily turn it into an electric by clicking Model.Edit.Propeller in PhoenixRC and making a few changes.
Let me know if you need help with that.

Army Beech Staggerwing


US Army version of the Beech Staggerwing assigned to US embassies in Europe in the late 30's.
This particular aircraft is the YC-43 assigned to the London air attache'.
Very nice flying aircraft - my favorite creation yet.

Was able to knock out a quick Smithsonian version by editing only the texture files.
Flies exactly like the YC-43, of course, but I'm a sucker for yellow planes.

Final Three Staggerwings


Really, really enjoying these Beech Staggerwings.
Ended up creating three versions - Smithsonian D-17S, YC-43 Traveler, and a SD-17S Amphib painted in Texaco colors.

Great aerobatic airframe, and as you'll note in the video, the amphib is a ton of fun.
