Greetings,
 our quest with --native & -ctrls master/slaving continues. Having
applied a patch from the mailing list, we got flight control
transferring to work.
 However, this doesn't make the engine of the slave work (propeller not
turning, and all that) - presumably because the lack of an FDM. Is there
an accepted solution for this, or should we just transfer the relevant
data? (e.g. by hacking it into the native transfer code, or by using the
generic i/o system, etc).

Most airplanes use rpm to animate the propellors ... that should be communicated in the --native-fdm packet.   I don't know helicopters are setup, but you may need to do some hacking or modifications to make it all work.

Regards,

Curt.
