    Ok thank you for the feedback. Yes, I found my solution for creating the HF probe antenna based on a YouTube video of someone building a helical shape (a poo, haha). There were two methods described, one using Blender, and the other 3ds and it’s on this basis I formed my opinion. I’ll go check...

    I’m back :) Only a brief summary. Not a lot of physical progress. I have undergone significant amounts of time away from home for training coupled with an international move and job change, so the hobby has been parked for a while however in the meantime, in my downtime I take the opportunity...

    Thanks guys for the encouragement. Lion heart, I have looked at others' work. Part of the reason I’m doing this apart from the learning aspect is because their work wasn’t convincing enough to use, emulate build on for entertainment or learning purposes. They each have their qualities but in...

    2 months later. I've spent 145 tracked hours and a thousand dollars (told you guys i was serious!) on my project and i've only just scratched the surface on systems knowledge haha I havent finished accumulating knowledge in the form of manuals yet. I also am only JUST getting used to Blender...

    Hi. Though I refer to them, I don’t consider blender guru’s Tutorials a mainstay. He uses the most basic of 3 view drawings (very very basic) which makes the artist have to unnecessarily apply their artistic license sooner than is required. In reality, the drawings get much more technical than...

    Thank you all! I'm well underway. 3D modelling is where i've started and, despite the advice I decided to capture time spent on the project (as far as practicable). So - 75hrs/21days later, and I believe I have a good solid basic technical knowledge of the plane i'm modeling. After studying the...

    Edit - I’ve just had a sneak peak at the links you’ve supplied! Cannot thank you enough! That is perfect both for me and anyone else who may read this thread! Thank you very much! I very much appreciate you taking the time to provide reference. I will reply in kind and read/watch your...

    Yes, it is fun, I’m finding. But then, I haven’t got to the coding yet :) Kalong, that is exactly the road I’m headed down. Been flying a while, I’ve tinkered a little here and there. Now I’m ready for the challenge of building a plane. I’m also keeping a diary as I work on this project, which...

    Gfxpilot. Thank you many times over for taking the time to write what you have. I cannot adequately express my gratitude to you all. The project I will eventually work is no longer operated (wink wink - ie not the latest and greatest 787 etc). i Do not intend to market it as I doubt very much...

    Thanks gentleman, I really appreciate the detailed guidance you’ve just proffered. Rest assured, I acknowledge IN FULL the complexity of the task ahead that I am repeatedly warned and lectured on in every post to the extent that (as politely as I can say this) I’m just going to ignore those...

    If what I was endeavoring to build was on the shelf to an adequate level of complexity I guarantee i wouldn't be embarking on this road :) I really don't think its a stupid thing to ask for a road map or infographic, as I believe an airplane would carry key components. Seems i've wasted my...

    Thanks Heretic and DDawson I am embarking on this road to build a craft. I intend to be jack of all trades, flight model/aerodynamics, 3D modelling, gauge programming etc. At this stage the intent is to bounce from one to the other whenever I get sick of the aspect I’m working on. I have a...
