Looking for Custom Aircraft developer


Recommended Posts


I own a Cessna 172 (a real one). It has a custom made camera pod that attaches to the wing strut. I'd like to hire someone to make a model of it that would fly in a flight simulator. I'd be using this model for trade shows and for my website. Here is a link that shows a picture of it. http://blimpguy.com/services/airplane-aerial-photography/


Could any of you guys point me in the right direction?

In FSX you can make a '(CameraDefinition.x)' in the aircraft.cfg which you can then place on the wing strut (ie: position it there). You then can use 'S' and 'A' key to go to that EYE POINT and fly using that view. You can zoom in and out if you activate that feature ('Allow Zoom=TRUE') in the (CameraDefinition.x) section. So you don't need to create a 'new' model with a camera pod. That would be very time consuming so no modeler will even bother with doing that, unless you 'swap' big dollars for the 'favor'.

Also, unless I've misunderstood the original question, I can't see why you want a flight sim model for trade shows and your website.

Couldn't you simply take your real-world camera Cessna up and get somebody to film it from a chase plane at different angles?

You could then have the footage running on a continuous loop on a screen at shows and at your website.
