Hey guys, I need help....I'm probably missing a simple step but after downloading some planes from Knife Edge, I can find them in the import file, but after trying to link, they do not show up in my planes list....what am I doing wrong?
Thanks, Gord

Re: Help with Knife Edge downloads......RF #7

Maybe the downloads are not compatible with RF#7, I have had that happen from knife edge, I am running RF#4.5.
That went well

Re: Help with Knife Edge downloads......RF #7

If it's RF 7 they are now in a separate folder called something like Custom Aircraft or something like that. On my computer that folder was above the regular list of planes / heli's the disk installed but right now I have an issue starting RF which installed & worked perfectly for 2 weeks. If you have that folder click on it to see the list.

Edited to add
They do go into Custom Aircraft, but sometimes the file you download requires a previous version of the plane the newer version is based on. You can find out if that's the problem by checking the info in the download page for a specific file.

Re: Help with Knife Edge downloads......RF #7

I am not having any issues with importing ... BUT ... many of the planes are designed for programmable transmitters and the RF Interface system. I have had to go to some major mixes to fly them.

You need to download the "Entire Airplane" (EA) before you download a "Color Scheme" (CS). Other than that, choosing the last option on the import combo-box and in it goes.

I am also running RF as an "Administrator" ... which should make no difference.

Several of the planes import with a warning that they were generated for an earlier version of RF ... but I have only had one that was a kludge and it was probably a kludge in the design to start with.
