The sight has a separate controls scheme from the Mi-24 itself. If you look under controls you will see one for the Mi-24, one for the sight, and one for the AI. Select the control scheme for the sight and see what is bound under the axis settings.
Ya, that's a tough one. Can you try clearing the trimmer button and trimmer-reset bindings and then binding them to different keys and different buttons to see if there is a conflict with something else, in the UI layer maybe?
The pedals always behave as if they have inertia. Moving your controller pedals quickly from stop to stop will show the in game pedals moving much more slowly, trying to keep up with your inputs.
However if you make small, considered movements on your controller, as you would when flying, the in game pedals mirror your movements.
Secondly, you are correct. The YAW AP channel will, when enabled, adjust the anti-torque automatically to compensate for changes in torque demanded by the collective - and hence move your pedals without you doing so physically.
- Open the mission and set the Hind somewhere - take off hot from ground. Try moving your own pedals stop to stop and watch the in game pedals. Then try moving the pedals in slow, incremental movements and see how the in game ones behave.
- Then, with the YAW AP channel active (green light on) try a hover check without touching your own pedals, but increasing the collective very slowly and gradually, giving the YAW AP channel time to adjust. Watch what happens to your pedals.
Next disable the YAW AP channel and try the same thing .... then hit restart or end mission. 🔥😆
The only way to get MG pods + ATGM on 5-8 is with a custom loadout, I think. The DCS Hind doesn't support that now, it will mess up the weapons systems, and the real Hind also has such limitations it seems.
