Description model of the sequoia Falco f8l home built aircraft built from the factory home builders plans. To be used as a base line for aerodynamic and structural analysis models for my other design concepts. includes an engine model (lycoming 0320 160hp). fuse cross sections roughly correspond to fuse bulkheads on real aircraft and the VSP calculated CofG approximately corresponds to pilots hand book MTOW CofG more info on this aircraft (including drawings) can be found here

I can load Cessna 172 and 182 but not the Falco. Files are .vsp3 versus .vsp. Is that the problem? Falco file is in my document file same as the others but does not show up the Open VSP file page. What do I need to do to get the Falco to transfer to my VSP File page/window?

just saw this. in the gen tab for each element you can assign the element a material. to make the element see through assign it's material as glass.

its a different element

how do you adjust the opacity of different elements? I've played with the software but i can't find it.
