    Yes, you use a modelling program, save to a file load to memory in your code then draw the data.

    You still need to write the code to load and draw the model, but you get to model or 'draw' the helicopter using art instead of coding skills.

    You can get code that does this kind of thing, for example here:

    http://www.jawed.com/jawmd2/

    If you modeled a helicopter using one of the popular MD2 character modelling packages you would be able to do what you want with just the code in this viewer.

    You could create models like the ones required using a program like milkshape3D:
