MotoCalc

Like trying to design electric models? MotoCalc is a program that will help you predict the way an electric model will fly. You enter in the information about the plane e.g. motor, gearbox, speed controller ect. And it will show you what performance you can expect. Whats nice about MotoCalc is you can mix and match different size props, gear ratio information, battery types and more. MotoCalc will then give you a table for each combination.

MACD

MACD is a PC program that helps design paint schemes for R/C aircraft. It will allow you to do different paint schemes on top and bottom and rotate the plane to check out your color scheme form different angles. Plus much, much more.

It is very easy to use, but will require the following PC minimum requirements or higher. DirectX 8.0 or higher, DirectX 8.0 compatible Graphics Adapter with 3D hardware acceleration. (most PCs built after 2001 have this already) if not the program will warn you. Windows 95/98/Me/2000 will need to upgrade to DirectX 8 or 9, if you haven't already done so already. XP came with DirX 8 automatically.
