As new to world of helo models...few Q`s

When assigning the VTol  RCS   components how crucial is placement...also how do you go about deciding where to place them.?

looked at some helo data,s and models in mues lod viewer....(btw...in mues viewer  some reason  seakings dont show a lod...though it thinks its there)

I know how to fake ailerons etc and dummy items...just the VTOL commands (RCS) has me stumped...

TIA..

Before anyone gets too excited lol....this IS an FSX model,one I had bought ages ago...I hoped it was in the Aphasim freeware bundle ,but after I started to convert it,discovered it isnt.......so,Ive contacted Virtavia,who ARE more or less Alphasim....to get permission to convert it to a freeware model....I informed them it would be in SF2 LOD format and probably not so easy to pirate lol...

anyways,if they refuse...I will "clone it"....as ive already replaced some parts anyways..some new parts,some texture work,new Spec and Bumps etc......about 10%.....I am hopeful they will agree,dont see why not as its now an old model...if they refuse I might suggest I charge for it...$2.00 lol...and give them half....anyways...we`ll see what happens...no matter what,we will still get a version....Ive probably put in 6 hours work on it...all need now is the data..doing...(will use the one from the KA-29 one we have at CA....all points etc (co-ords,coll points etc)

Hopefully the green light will be good as ive a few items in pipeline...:biggrin:

Yakarov.....ive set the rcs as you indicated...would you agree I set them (looking from side) midway between top and bottom rotor sets.....?

also didnt add yaw rcs as the kamov has rudders....this you think ok ?

cheers bud...lot to learn with helo models lol

believe it is worth of trying..can result in interesting behavior...you can also experiment with puting them in 3/4 of that distance...but it also depends on COG and reference area of a model.  

if rudder will be enough to make a hard turn on low-speed then maybe rcs on yaw is not important.

trial and error is my friend on helos...and moonshine.

If you did 30% or more of changes on model it can be consider a new one. If not, make the credits and go on. It's a sort of "abandonware".

That's absolutely ridiculous, I hope you are joking...  :lol:

No. For Copywrite law if anything is 30% or more diferent from the original can be considered as a new. The hard part is estimate how 30% is changed.

Wilches, what are you talking about?  There's no such thing as a "copywrite" law.  I assume you meant "copyright"; but besides almost all of these are subject to licensing agreements - LOL - these are different.  In almost all cases the licensing agreements declare and uphold protection of the copyright laws.  How do I know?  Because I was subject to software code and intellectual property piracy in the past both personally and professionally where lawyers had to get involved.  I'm not going to say anything more on this topic - good luck.
