Hi guys I'm modelling a rotor (Brushless motor + propeller) and a plane with simMechanics where I add a rotation + thrust force for a time then I apply no more... The idea is that the rotor will raise for a certain altitude then fall. The problem is that the motor fall forever (Passing through the plane)... I've tried to use the constraint block but when I simulate I got an error on the solver "Singularity issue"
Do you guys know a better way to limit the translation extension of this cylindrical joint? I've heard about the hard-stop but I could not understand it well and I'm not certain that this is the better way.
