Andrew Linden's Teacup Flight Script

// Simple airplane script example

// THIS SCRIPT IS PUBLIC DOMAIN! Do not delete the credits at the top of this script!

// Nov 25, 2003 - created by Andrew Linden and posted in the Second Life scripting forum
// Jan 05, 2004 - Cubey Terra - minor changes: customized controls, added enable/disable physics events
// Feel free to copy, modify, and use this script.
// Mar 02, 2004 - Modified for Illume's Teacup by Oboe Blanc.

// Always give credit to Andrew Linden and all people who modify it in a readme or in the object description.

// local x-axis points toward the nose of the plane, and its
// local z-axis points toward the top

Flash Scratch to SL - Your Scripting Tool

Script ImageNeed to write a LSL script and don't know how to script?  I know I hate trying to get my head around LSLS when I an in a time crunch. So why not give Flash Scratch a try! Its a great tool for learning and scoding your own scripts for Second Life without having to pay someone to do it and without a crash course in LSL

A Huge thanks to John Bennet of ATLAS Institute at University of Colorado and Eric Rosenbaum at MIT for writing Scratch for SL to begin with.
