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

Development status/Issues/Todo

FDM

  • Currently only the winged phase of a flight is modeled. Landing (with parachute) and jump (folded wings) are yet to be developed.
  • Jet engines are close to, but not releastic yet.

3D Model

  • The model is basically finished; details (like belts and better helmet) will be added later on.
  • Parachute is not modeled yet.
