From today (December 4, 2015) this model is running again, adjusted for the normalization of the rotation axes.

First Post  ( May 18, 2014)
After a fight with JSBSIM of weeks, I managed to complete the first version, still imperfect but working of a project that had haunted me since I met Outerra.
Always passionate about flight simulators you've dreamed of sailing between the mountains and over the valleys of Anteworld in the purest way, with the wind on my face, riding a winged animal, alive and obedient to the commands.
In a world so primeval and virgin I imagined reptilian humanoids who have learned to tame the great eagles, and use it to get where they want to carry.

Who wants to experience the thrill of this way of flying can download the EAGLE here:

  And now  ....  GOOD  FLIGHT  !!!!


Optimized version    Update June 13, 2014
Version with several minor general improvements

EAGLE EVOLUTION     Update Sept.2014
Even in Anteworld, how on Earth, but much faster, you obey the rules of Darwinian Evolution.
So even the Eagle has evolved and has several improvements over its earlier versions.

Did you separate the wings and scripted the animation on a sinusoid or did you split it for the vert. count of the model ?  ???

Can you post a version without the man riding it?

Would be nice to have it as a scripted AI so they could fly on their own near mountain cliff.

Has anybody downloaded this?  Because it tells me I don't have permission.  I guess I'm not worthy.

Of course it would be nice to have anything fly around mountains on its own.

The first hypothesis is correct!
I split the wings into pieces and scripted their positioning with the commands "move" and "rotate". All the flapping animation is based on a sinusoid deformed by the coefficients which determine the amplitude of the beat and the different inclinations according to the distance from the body of the eagle and the movement of the same (the deformation of the wing when it moves from the bottom upward  is different from the opposite movement.) Unfortunately I was not able to calculate the placements in a perfect way (despite having studied for weeks) and divisions, especially in the ends of the wings, are obvious.

Were you able to solve?
I checked Google Drive and it seems all right.

... could try to make overlap-pieces (just doing an extension of each piece declining in width into the space of the neighboring one). Also checking the pivot points (origins) and the hierarchy would be interesting too. I speculating now white a leaf-spring - segmented it and parented one peace to another down to the end. Now there are just minor corrections for each based on the wheel Z-axis position (height) - just needs some fine-tuning work too.  But a nice outcome there anyway.
