    Read pjprofili’s comments below. I don’t recall exactly where the model is but if you read his comments below he tells us how to find it.

    where did you get that model, ive been downloading about 4 now but cant find one that flys that well, or looks that good

    I believe you can. I have used a Saitek Game Controller to do this on my laptop. I just prefer doing it with my real airplane transmitter.  The problem with a game controller is the spring loaded left stick which corresponds to the throttle on a model transmitter. On a model airplane transmitter that stick is not spring loaded to neutral and can therefore retain a setting given to it whereas the game controller returns to center position.

    Question, I didn’t understand what you said on your description. Can you hook any plane remote up to your computer if you have a USB connector?

    A Slow Stick is a minimalist radio controlled model airplane. The fuselage consists of an aluminum “stick” and it flies very slowly, hence “Slow Stick.” Many people use a Slow Stick as their first radio controlled model. Many experienced fliers have one just for fun.

    Got them both. Thanks for the great models. I will try to get some video of them in flight for YouTube soon.

  8. Bob Brown III says:

    Thanks. I will do that. Those sound like models that would be fun to have.

    Search for my username (pjprofili) in that Forum for links to the three models that I’ve built for FMS. The Slow Stick, the Parkzone J-3 Cub and the Trick Stick.

    Sure thing!

    The modeling was done using a program called Metasequioa (looks like YouTube doesn’t allow URLs in comments, so Google for metasequioa 3d and you’ll find the page) and there’s an FMS forum that contains quite a bit of detail on various aspects of model building. Again a Google search for fms will take you there.
