in the tutorial i have the boat doesn't have moving parts, i need to move a single part (a propeller) at a given rpm and study the dynamic of the entire airplane.

I think the model you are looking for is called superposed rotation/motion. It should be explained in the help files.

Thanks, superposed rotation should be the right things to use, bytheway i need to get the license for starccm 5.x because i have version 4 and this features is not available. I'll keep you update as soon as i get the new version..
