No, you cannot. For FS9, you need to use something like PandaSoft's X file plugin, then compile the .x file with MakeMDL.exeFor FSX, you need to use the FSModelExp.dle from the FSX SDK, then compile the .x file with XtoMDL.exe

If I read the SDK correctly, exporting directly to mdl was going to be incorporated in a future update. I wouldn't bet on that happening now...
