Rigging the Flight Controllers
This second lesson will get us started with the actual rigging process. First, we'll rig the flight control surfaces, including the Ailerons, the Flaps/Elevators on the wings, the Vertical stabilizer (or "tail fin"), and the Horizontal Stabilizers. Next, we'll use parenting and Transformation constraints to tie each of the control surfaces to the Roll, Pitch, and Yaw controllers. Once that's done, we'll move on to the speed brakes - the small panels which pop up to slow the aircraft down in flight.
