1. Click on "source tree" to open the repository. You can now browse through all the files. 2. Click on "Download master as tar.gz" to download the entire repository (won't work on fgdata, as that one is several GB, but for small repositories like this it works).
I did a quick fix on the model today: - Plugged in some random instruments - fixed some nasal errors. - hid the 3-d line drawings in FG
The startup procedure now needs the battery and alternator switches turned on. They are mapped to the ( and ) keys. The } key is overloaded to be the starter key, too. So the key sequence '( ) } } } }' will start the engine.
It has 4 flaps settings - the original C42-B has only 3. livery, seats, joystick, pedals, magnetic compass, choke, carb. heat, flap-handle, air intakes, wheel cover, rudder trim surface, 3 switches: fuel pump, strobe, landing light
last week I allso got interested in the c42 and downloaded the aircaft to start learning aircaft modeling. The original model is a little distorted, because the reference images are off. I have tweaked the model a little, but not shure about the right techniques for modeling and animation.
You say the model in my repo by Ron Jensen (jentron) is distorted ? Or which model ? The aircraft I am working on ( https://github.com/mherweg/Ikarus ) has animated control surfaces, gear dampers, front wheel steering.
In case you want to model & animate the stick or the flap handle, you can have a look at the xml files of other FG models, e.g. sailplanes and helicopter.
