I'm too lazy to fire up FRAPS and take a video, but when it comes to scale, I like flying the Schweizer with floats:



And the Westland Lynx for some extreme scale FFF:

When I get it finished, this Royal Navy Bucaneer for ClearView will be my hot favourite. First Navy jet I've done with folding wings.

Very cool Tom, how long does it take you to design a model like that? Do you start from scratch?

This one started as an FMS import (if I remember correctly - I'll have to check when I get my own computer going again, this one's the wifes'). So far it's taken about 3 months spread over a year. I believe it's the only ClearView model with folding wings. Just getting that bit right has taken two full weeks! (Got to keep the ailerons in line with the wings!) I'm also working on a Lancaster, but that's going to be a while yet.

Love ClearView, I often test experimental models that I might build, helps to get the CG etc right. Can't put up any examples until I get the internet sorted on my computer. I think the router is up the creek and I'm on WI-FI.

The Buccaneer is about ready, if you have ClearView and would like to test it you can get it from here.

Argh you are making me want Clearview just to fly your models Tom! I could use my RealFlight Futaba USB controller with it, right?

Not sure on that one Nick, if windows recognise it as a PPM controller then there should be no problem.

You can download the free demo copy of ClearView (runs for a limited time with a few test models) to check. If that works then you send your $39.99 USD and get the access code to upgrade it to the full program. Trying it out will cost nothing except a little time.
