  1. Well I haven't jumped on all kinds fo threads, just this one, and I am not trying to be difficult. Personally, I thought I presented my point of views respectfully and tried to explain why I felt the way I did. As for the *show* I can't speak as to why others feel it is necessary to insult and ridicule a perfectly reasonable opinion backed by facts and reason. I only responded to the OP with my own personal opinion, I am sorry that you don't like it.
  2. MODS: Are you going to delete this post due to 1.1 as well? Asking for a friend
  3. Well I can tell you that the sensitivity doesn't really bother me because every helicopter I have ever piloted has been EXTREMELY sensitive to inputs so I leave that one alone. I can tell you that the sensitivity of the Robinson R22 is so severe that during training my instructor told me to stop trying to move the cyclic to go in the direction I wanted. He said to simply THINK about moving the cyclic and you would get it. And that worked, but it took a long time to get used to it. So I can't say if the sensitivity is accurate for a Gazelle, but I can say that that aspect of the mod
  4. That would be true if you could ABSOLUTELY PERFECTLY get trimmed out so that you are ABSOLUTELY PERFECTLY lined up with the tracks. IN REAL LIFE that is absolutely impossible to do. This is exactly the point. No matter how awesome a pilot you are, there will be SOME kind of variance to your lineup and eventually the helicopter will veer away from the tracks at some point. You could not line the helicopter up so perfectly that you could leave it as-is for 8 hours straight and have it never veer from the tracks, but you CAN with the Gazelle. I give up. Apparently I am not capable of descr
  5. And that is an interesting statement as (Yes I do realize that) but then you say that yours will crash if left hands off any period of time so what is your point regarding SCAS? Based on your statement of SCAS that should SUPPORT the on rails aspect (Although still not 100% as wind and such will still affect the flight model but does not with the Gazelle.) So your comment regarding SCAS makes no sense when trying to refute the on-rails aspect of the flight model... These are the kinds of things that confuse the issue and pulls us further from the point at hand that SCAS or otherwise,
  6. Yes it has, but people keep asking the questions and other people are still in disagreement. You say you have actually flown the Gazelle? Now I am intrigued as I did not realize that, must have missed it. So do you feel that the flight model is an accurate representation of the Gazelle flight characteristics? If yes please explain. And what is your response to my statements regarding being on rails. Absolutely no way that you can let a helicopter fly pretty much on it's own for miles and miles requiring zero interaction to keep it EXACTLY on course. That is not realistic at all.
  7. Funny how this is supposed to be a simulator where the aircraft actually SIMULATES the original. If that is not important to you then why are you here? I have many games that I enjoy that are completely unrealistic and are just plain "fun" and I don't begrudge anyone that option. And for the record, if you enjoy playing DCS and the Gazelle is fun for you then great, and more power to you. Please enjoy it! But here, on the DCS forum, a platform dedicated to the accurate simulation of an airframe, I cannot recommend the Gazelle or any other offering from Polychop for the reasons already
  8. I will expand on what FRI13 said.. The issue is a physics issue with their flight model. An example is an experiment I tried with the Gazelle vs the Huey.. I found a long straight train track on one of the maps and flew the Gazelle about 50 feet above the tracks setting my heading exactly down the tracks and let it fly. Several minutes later and with zero input from me, the Gazelle was still heading exactly down the tracks as when I started. EXACTLY same heading and altitude etc. This is impossible and is an example of the "On Rails" (PUN WAS intended by the way) feel and response of th
  9. Absolutely! But not until AFTER Kiowa has been released and reviewed. I won't be purchasing Kiowa until other folks that have voiced similar concerns about the flight model have reviewed it and given a thumbs up. Nothing is ever set in stone, but I personally will require some serious progress in the flight model area to turn my opinion around. If the Kiowa comes out and knocks it out of the park I will be the first in line to point it out and give them the rave reviews they deserve. But not until it is proven. And until they fix their issues my opinion remains that I will st
  10. Wrong Baco, I have flown helicopters in real life and the flight model of the Gazelle is simply WRONG. I gave up trying to debate the issues long ago as people refuse to listen, but I do step in periodically to point out that yes we are still here, and no the flight model is not correct... No matter how many times folks try to say otherwise. And it is bad enough that I will not purchase or recommend Polychop products again. Period.
  11. Good afternoon! Komodo Simulations makes some great controls for sims and the one I have been waiting for are the Black Shark cyclic and collective. Komodo has been working on the design for some time but has not been able to get accurate dimensional data for them. Is there anyone here that might have this information or access to the airframe itself so we can get the data to Komodo so he can finish the controls? I know this is a longshot but if any community MIGHT have a contact it would be this one! Anyone have access to the Shark controls?

  13. Riiight! And I'll bet you don't vaccinate your kids either. Both are GREAT suggestions! :cry: <smh>
  14. HeHe... 50 here and can relate to that feeling! :thumbup:
