First ‘true’ FSX aircraft from 3DC

No flaps on the Swallow – it flies too slowly to need them <!– s:) –><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!– s:) –>

A recent magazine article on flying the swallow here:

I forgot to mention this was published a couple of weeks ago.
Built entirely using 3DC and my FSX export plugin.
The FS9 version of the same model was published back in December.

Hi Paul,

You are definately a true pioneer…

Looks great… I’ll have to fire up FSX again – which I haven’t done since the MSTS bug bit me again…


Very nice model, looks very realistic in FSX.

How do you fly/control the model in FSX, do you need a joystick or can you do it from the keyboard?


You can use the keyboard to fly but it’s not as easy. You can even use the mouse as a joystick.

There are hundreds of keyboard commands in FS

Nice aircraft, Paul. I have been using 3DC to learn how to build hangers. Later I plan on making my version of the P-3C Orion and maybe the new P-8A Poseidon that is scheduled to start replacing the P-3’s. Have you uploaded your aircraft to any of the Flight sim websites, such as or, ect.

Well, I flew the BASallow in FSXA, flew really nice. Love these manifold pipes on the engine, I guess that’s what they are. Not sure if the flaps move, couldn’t get them to move with my settings. I like this aircraft better than the Pipe Cub. Hat’s off to Paul and his cohorts and 3DC.
