Default "Those Magnificent Men" planes in RealFlight

So I have been working on a 1/4 scale version of the 1910 AVRO Triplane which is one of the planes in the movie, "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines." (It's the one that Terry Thomas' character flies.) I went to England twice and received permission from the Suttleworth Collection to have access to the plane. I took extensive photographs and measurements. Then I created a SolidWorks model at full scale and another at 1/4 scale which I am building. (The fuselage and tail are done. The wings will get worked on this winter.)

I would love to be able to fly the plane in RealFlight. I certainly have all the 3D model details but don't know the first thing about going from SolidWorks to RealFlight. Can anyone help with the process? Better yet, would there be anyone out there that would like to work with me on the project?
