Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

A first version = Description =YASim development tools are an addon for Flightgear to visualize the internals of a YASim FDM while running the simulator. Minimum required version is FG 2018.1 = Installation =YASim development tools is are availabel for download on [https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/fgaddon/HEAD/tree/trunk/Addons/YASimDevel/ SourceForge]
In order to load the add-on, start FlightGear (fgfs) with the option --addon,
then look at the menubar. :)
= Usage =Select an entry from the YASim development menu. A canvas window will open, use left mouse click to zoom in, right click to zoom out. Left click+hold to drag. == displayMasses ==You will get a canvas window showing the airplane mass points viewed from top with markers for the CG (the diamond), the desired range as given by the cg-min and cg-max attributes in the XML file and the hard limits for the CG (given by the gear positions).  == displayForces ==Similar output as for displayMasses. Also displayed are the centerlines of the wings and the MAC. Last but not least a colored chord line is drawn per surface element (yasim generates several surface elements per wing). They will show green for positive lift and magenta for negative lift. The red part indicates drag.
