I followed nerdnic's tutorials pretty much. Inkscape makes it pretty easy to work with the flitetest plans. Heres my basic process that i have used now on a few planes i am working on:
- Open new inkscape file.
- Set page dimensions to 30x20, just to get an idea of its size compared to a sheet of foamboard.
- drop in the powerpod pdf from flitetest and set the quality of the import all the way to the right.
- Select all and spam the ctrl+shift+g button. This "disconnects" everything in the pdf and separates them so you can grab just the parts you want.
- Highlight the powerpod or whatever part i want and ctrl+g to group that together.
- Delete everything else.
Now you can drop in whatever pictures or plans and scale them up/down to match the same size as the powerpod.
Just make sure to hold down ctrl while shrinking things so it does it in all dimensions and it doesnt get lopsided.
