Default Wingmotion Tutorial - Changing parameters?

Hey guys,

Complete OpenFOAM newbie here. I'm trying to change parameters in the wingmotion tutorial - essentially just messing around, getting a feel for the system.

I figured out how to change the freestream velocity, by going to
wingmotion2D_pimpledyFoam/ and wingmotion2D_simpleFoam/, and changing the value given in the file initialConditions to whatever I want, but anything other than that is giving me a hard time.

How would I change, for instance, the axial/linear damping of the airfoil, or the angle of attack, or the initial angular/linear momentum? I tried changing the stuff in wingmotion2D_pimpledyFoam/constant/dynamicMeshDict, which was my first guess, but it didn't seem to have any effect.

Any help would be appreciated!
