  1. I've experience loss of right rudder authority on several occasions whenever i crest the peak of a mountain at several thousands of feet above sea level. The Mi-8 will slowly spin to the left for 30 - 45 seconds even though I have applied full right rudder pedal to counter act the spin. Is the loss of rudder authority at altitudes the result of an updraft at the peak of a mountain ridge or something else?
  2. This. I watched a pair of mi-24s directed by a gci make numerous sequential passes over ground forces embedded in a forest. The Hinds followed close behind each other and turned them all into scrap metal. It was enjoyable to watch as I circled in my mi-8. Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  3. You should see a countdown if hovering recovery is implemented. Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks for all of the replies. Ok, so it sounds like you do need a "forward observer" in MP or an allied unit (air or ground) in proximity to the target. This can be tricky in some instances if you don't have another player and are forced to place another ground unit nearby since enemy ground units often shoot at targets within visual range.

  5. CA newbie here. Is there a simpler way of spotting where artillary rounds land in a MP server instead of using the LCntrl-f11 function? I've seen several CA YouTube vids where the youtuber seems to jump straight to a fixed location where the rounds land but I can't tell if that's just post video editing or the YouTuber using a snap view function or something similar. In one video, the youtuber referenced the use of a forward observer to help spot where the rounds land and even showed a dude stand within a few hundred yards from the target. Is there such a role or function in DCS? If not, is there a simple way to spot the target after firing a round so that you can make adjustments to aiming your ground unit?

  6. I'm having difficulty in holding altitude when the altitude/cyclic hold is activated. A short while after being engaged, the Mi-8 will decrease and or increase in altitude in a cyclical manner. If I'm near the ground when the AP is engaged, it often leads to catastrophic results if I'm not paying close enough attention to grab ahold of the controls to regain altitude. This happens when all three AP buttons are activated. Am I doing something wrong or is that how it works and constant monitoring is always required?
  7. One of these days, I'll get around to posting a long-ass video on youtube of my ejected pilot walking across the Caucasus back to base.

  9. This problem still persists (at least on the HOGGIT GAW server) as of the date of this post.
  10. What happens if you drive him back to base?
