First of all, I think it's important to know which FDM you are using.

Should correct myself that it is a stall spin.

Could you maybe send a flight log or a video? That would make it a bit easier

HHS,

Great info. I am looking for someone capable of making the graphical (3D) model of a new aircraft. Are you interested?

Hello everyone! I'm quite new to the FG community.
This is great article for beginners like me.Now I am developing a very small plane for my own collection
I'm quite new to this, but I've read many different opinions.

Can someone pleas update wiki page http://wiki.flightgear.org/Howto:Create ... sh_screens ?

It says "that is very easy to do, just by looking at the documentation". But what documentation should I look at? I suppose this wiki page is that documentation. But as it states "This article or section contains out-of-date information". And indeed, there is no information what is the difference between

Code: Select all
<startup>
    <splash-texture>Aircraft/MYPLANE/Splash/splash1.jpg</splash-texture>
</startup>
and
Code: Select all
<previews>
      <preview>
          <splash type="bool">true</splash>
          <path>Splash/splash1.jpg</path>
      </preview>
      <preview>
          <splash type="bool">true</splash>
          <path>Splash/splash2.jpg</path>
      </preview>
</previews>


Content of which elements is displayed on splash screen? I suppose
Code: Select all
<description></description>
and
Code: Select all
<author></author>


Is still true, that "dimensions must be powers of two"?

Is there something else I should know about splash screens (recommended size, etc.)?

Thanks in advance.
