Hi!Mr. Paco Esquembre,
For a model that is drawn to scale in centimeter, should I use g=980m/s/s or maintain the g=9.8m/s/s in the aux variable? My problem is that when using g=9.8m/s/s I may not be getting the true rpm result although it may seemed  operating normally. When using g=980m/s/s the model just  goes haywire  then freezes.
