Ken's Web Site Adding third party ClearView models:

- Download the model and extract it in known folder. Copy the model folder under c:\ClearViewRC\clearview\models and restart ClearView.

Ken form Florida has a web site with a number of amazing models for ClearView. The number of models that Ken created approaches 100. If you have a model for CV, contact Ken and he may host it there.

Gunnerson web site You may want to visit ggunners web site for more great models for ClearView. These are very hight quality models that have been tested and set to fly very much like the real models they represent.

All models are in zip format and must be unzipped under ClearView/models directory. Restart the simulator for the new models to show up.

ClearView is designed to support easy model exchange and model customisation. Users experienced with CAD or 3d modeling can create new models. Each model is represented by a directory under "Program Files/SVK Systems/ClearView/models" folder. The model directory contains all files relevant to that model. The model 3d files are in "data" subdirectory of the corresponding model directory. This model files are in open 3d modeling format. The program used to create models is AC3D.

User created models are build and tuned by expert fliers and deserve really close attention. Click here for the expert work of Michael Cofer.

The models in ClearView are fully configurable. The advanced setting for planes provides more than 90 parameters to define all aspects of the model flight behavior. Thanks to Gregory Matthews for creating and to Kenneth Green for formatting and editing plane flight parameters.

Many thanks to Mark Glennon who contributed this excellent manual:

Converting FMS models to ClearView including rotating props, moving surfaces and landing gear (html) or get it from here as pdf.

Mark's document shows how to create rotating props, moving control surfaces, control points and other details and contains all information needed to create models from scratch or convert FMS models to ClearView.

Michael Cofer created another converting manual on the same subject. He covers in details the whole process and gives excellent tips on working with ac3d. We all know Michael for his ClearView models (posted latter on this page) and his flying videos on YouTube. This manual will be of great help to anyone interested in creating new models.

Converting FMS Models to ClearView Using AC3D by MichaelCofer

For help and tips how to create models for ClearView, join the ClearView developers forum here.

Currently, most of the ClearView models are build using flight physics version 5 for planes and version 3 and 4 for helicopters. We have developed a new generation flight physics (version 6) that over time will be used for all ClearView models. This new flight physics is under extensive testing and final tune up. We are in process of documenting how to built, setup and fine tune models for ClearView using the new flight physics. We will be posting all how to documents here:

Note: Due to size limitations, and in order to keep the latest models in ClearView stock we reserve the right to add or remove models to the stock ClearView distribution.

User created models:

The following models are created and expertly tuned by Michael Cofer. Michael is accomplished 3d plane pilot who created many amazing aerobatic models for ClearView. Here is what Michael say about his models:

"...- I think you and all CV pilots are going to flip over the way I have the parameters set up. I really cant tell much difference between my real 3D aerobatic planes and the sim models. Snap rolls / barrel rolls / blender / flips / rolling harriers left and right outward and inward / knife edges passes slow or fast / elevators / side slips up or inverted /4 point flipping turns / quarter turns in flight / total all out 3D fun." - end of the quote.

You must see his flying videos on YouTube. They are the best. We all can learn a lot watching him fly.
