I have read a couple post of people who asked for a Formosa for FMS. Does anyone know if one has been made for FMS yet?

Thanks

Wow, I would think the Formosa was a pretty popular plane for these sims. I guess its not though. Looks like I need to learn how to make planes for FMS.

New GWS Formosa model for FMS


I've created the Formosa model you asked for.

Model: GWS Formosa
Author: Gary Gunnerson
Email: GaryG51384@aol.com
WebPage: http://gunnerson.homestead.com/files/fms_models.htm
Created: November 2004



Notes:
The GWS web site is located at http://www.gws.com.tw/english/product/airfly/f3a.htm .
This model seems a bit over-powered. If so, just reduce the max RPMs or drop the blocking current down a bit. This is a very nice model. It'll knife edge, fly inverted and generally do most things a nice aerobatic trainer will do plus slow down real well too. It will rise off the ground (ROG) at half throttle and is very easily controlled and a lot of fun to fly. Please give it a try!

If you'd like to edit the control throws, use the plane field .par file editor on My webpage. http://gunnerson.homestead.com/files...eld-editor.zip

I must be blind. Can someone post the link to the Formosa download? All I see are the other planes on the site, but no Formosa.

GalantVR4,

You need to refresh your browser cache. In Internet Explorer the option is under the Tools menu item called Internet Options.

Once you select that, Click on the "Temporary Internet Files" button called [Settings]. Make sure the circle is black for "Every Visit To The Page"

Here's a direct link to the Formosa zip file.

Me and my mate have modified the skin on the Formosa so it looks like mine, and we've tried out some colour schemes, which is pretty useful. But how do we do the underside of the wings? That would be really useful.

bugeater,

Sorry, I didn't image map the bottom of the wings to the formosa.bmp file so they're white.

I just re-mapped the formosa.bmp file and rearranged the wing area in the image map. Your personal and customized wings will not look correct now but you will be able to modify all surfaces by editing the formosa.bmp file with an image editor.
