Resizing some models cause instant crash

  • If change size or weight of some models to too small, there is instant crash. Like Merlin and Junior S.

    Ya, if you lower the Melin's size below ~75% on the scale bar (which automatically lowers its total scale weight then it crashes before take off (the plane, not the program). The Merlin is already a pretty small model anyway.


    The Junior S is fine down to 50% scale size (which again auto-adjusts scale weight). But if you lower its weight on top of this below ~75% it crashes (wings break off?).


    Probably something to do with the model's design not working quite right when these are taken below a certain limit. I wonder if this also happens with RC7?


    Not something that bothers me since I do not fly those e-glider models but if it is important to you I think you should let RC8 support know about it. Hopefully they can sort it out in a future RC8 update.

  • The 'rescale' feature of Aerofly RC 7 and RC 8 is extremely complex as it modifies our underlying physics parameters. Some parameters ( if adjusted in the wrong way ) will cause the model to crash instantly. So as a general rule, making a model smaller will 'mostly' work to a certain degree, but some models just don't like to be rescaled due to the critical parameters.

    Thanks for this reply and explanation. I understand and accept this. I normally only use the scaling to increase the top bar scale size (which automatically increases its weight) in order to better see aircraft, esp. in VR. Thanks again.
