I fly some experimental GA aircraft that are not in the normal AI or IVAO Models. for instance a Rutan Longez. So having the default aircraft as the CRJ must seem pretty strange to those viewing me. Is there a way to have people see these aircraft without having them in their model matching set??
thanks

No ... in order for other pilots to see you as a Longez, they have to have a Longez model installed in their sim, and they'll need a custom model matching file that tells vPilot to use that model when encountering an aircraft online using LGEZ as the type code. (Assuming that's what you use when you connect.)

Ok thanks Ross,
Yes I use LGEZ and when I fly that aircraft or others like that I could change my Default model to a C172. I assume that would be better for everyone to see that vs. the CRJ?

Your default model only determines what you see when you don't have a match for other aircraft you encounter online. It has no effect on what others see. The only effect you can have on what others see is the aircraft type code you connect as, and your callsign.

This is why World of AI and other model packages are so helpful. When you install them all, you have more aircraft that you can see, so less aircraft are displayed as the default.
