flight equations, where are they

Postby rgto273 » Tue May 22, 2007 1:55 am

I posted this in the general help section, but I think that this will be a better place..

I'm new to flight gear and was wondering under what file the flight equations are. I tried the help section and the manual but couldn't find anything. I would go through the files one by one, but since there are 1,090 of them according to WinZip it would take a while. Any help would be great. Thanks.

in FDM/Ballon you have everything inside only one file.
in FDM/YASim you have that in 60 files (or in Integrator.cpp for the final computation).

Not sure what you are looking for, but it's in the FDM dir, and then it depends on the kind of fdm you want to use.
Anyway flight equation is just normal physics laws ( ... ewton.html).

Well, I'm certain there are plenty of differential equations too.
