Air Transport

Customizable air transport aircraft


Air Transport is one of the aircraft that you can use within the 3D simulation environment. This environment is rendered using the Unreal Engine® from Epic Games®. This aircraft is designed to be customized with a user-supplied skeletal mesh. A sample skeletal mesh is provided in Views.

To add this type of vehicle to the 3D simulation environment:

  1. Add a Simulation 3D Aircraft block to your Simulink® model.

  2. In the Block Parameters dialog box, on the Aircraft Parameters tab, set the Type parameter to Air transport.

  3. On the Aircraft Parameters tab, set the Path to air transport mesh parameter to either the sample mesh path or to your own air transport skeletal mesh path. The sample skeletal mesh path is /MathWorksAerospaceContent/Vehicles/Aircraft/AirTransport/Mesh/SK_AirTransport.SK_AirTransport.

  4. On the Initial Values tab, set the Initial translation (in meters) and Initial rotation (in radians) parameters to an array size that matches the Air Transport aircraft, for example, zeros(30,3).
