Seeking Programmer for MOI Calculator
I am looking for a programmer to help me create the first realistic MOI calculator for Flight Simulator (FS2002-FSX). MOI data created by "aircraft design programs" are totally inaccurate, and I have the formula and design concept that will make this project successful. The MOI calculator will automatically reconfigure the aircraft.cfg file (making a backup file) in the [weight_and_balance] area as part of the routine, based on the wingspan, aircraft length, and OEW, and based on the FS version selected. Additionally, and if agreed upon, the calculator will also correct other issues within the [airplane_geometry] and [TurbineEngineData], and designed only for jet aircraft (other than the MOI data). Version One will do nothing but correct MOI, and additional calculators will be added later as the product developes. Profit split will be negotiated.
