Need help change the plane.

I am working on a F1 car and need to test it with Falcon. But when I first created the car in Inventor, I put it on the XY plane, and as I see, the flows go on the YZ or other direction but definitely not the XY since I see the flows go from side to side of my car. I even changed the direction on the compass but I still does not work. Please help me on changing the plane orientation in Inventor. However, I heard somebody said we could redefine the sketches and put them in another plane but it seemed does not work on me, it messed up everything. Thanks!

Redefine sketch only works in rare cases (where everything is based off first sketch and then part faces.
