adding spray boom to R44

Postby Wazeh » Sun Aug 30, 2020 1:56 am

first of all would i need permission to make a edit to a aircraft ?, i need help trying to put a sprayer boom and tank on the Robinson R44 in game, I would like to know what program to use and how to obtain the same sprayer boom and animation for the sprayer? do I simply use sketchup to put a sprayer boom in game ? i am so confused and new to aircraft development please help !

For Spraying system & animation you can refer to UH-1 from http://helijah.free.fr/flightgear/hangar.htm, http://helijah.free.fr/flightgear/tar.gz/uh1-23-12-2019.tar.gz
You can also design 3-D model of your spraying boom in Sketchup, but for using in FlightGear it should be in .ac format (i.e. AC3D format)
or you can use 3D model of sprayer from UH-1.

thankyou very much !, I am scared about the licensing though because I don't want to steal the boom for the UH1 and just use it on another aircraft, but will now get to learning Sketchup

If both of your aircraft, the R22 and the UH-1 come from the FGData aircraft repository they'd most likely both be GPLv2 (+) licensed. Then it will not be any problem mixing parts. Otherwise you need to read the two licenses and verify that you can combine the material.

Hi Wazeh, I personally designed the spray boom for the UH-1 and Helijah did the spray animation. If you look at the model my name should be on the developers. Feel free to use it/modify it to your needs.
