  1. Which is kind of equivalent to a 9% dead zone, as the game will deactivate yaw AP as soon as the rudder is off center
  2. As far as I've understood, springless pedals do not work that well with DCS implementation of Yaw SAS , if I'm not mistaken the Yaw channel activates when there's no pedal input, which is detected in DCS when the pedals are centered. So the Yaw channel would be off most of the time with springless pedals. I need to test that theory EDIT : I just tested, indeed the rudder needs to be centered for the Yaw channel to activate

    Transmitting on radio is emitting. Spamming radio commands while having your radio on a Freq X will point nearby ADF receivers tuned on this frequency toward the emmitter, AFAIK.
  4. Purely from a semantic point of view, it's LTA when you cannot order enough power to your tail rotor for it to do its job properly (you can't have Authority over your tail rotor anymore), and LTE when you can push enough power to the tail rotor, but conditions make its work useless (Tail rotor lost its Effectiveness). Most if not all of what we witness with DCS Hind is LTA
  5. It's pretty simple to see in-game : get near 14 main rotor pitch and watch your tail rotor not having enough power anymore to counteract main rotor, as much of the power is diverted to maintaining main rotor pitch. It happens consistently, at all altitude, and actually all weight. It's not the result of interaction between main rotor airflow and tail rotor, nor interaction with wind, which are all listed as the causes of LTE in all documents listed above, it's more systematic than that. It's simply a lack of remaining power for the tail-rotor. ED said they were looking into LTE but it was higly complex to model and would require quite some dev power. I'd guess if they had it done, they would have said it. In the meantime, personally, I lighten my Hind so that I never need to go beyond 13 pitch for normal operations, and I only ever pass that limit when in forward speed enough to have forward airflow that keeps my Hind in check (usually when a high dose of lead and/or missile is flying toward me)
  6. If this is all that is needed, then it's not LTE
  7. Lose weight. More often than not, you don't need that much fuel
  8. I'd like to see a confirmation about this, tbh, from ED
  9. Did we even have confirmation that LTE has been implemented?
  10. Did you try to activate the Rudder Trimmer option in the Special Tabs settings for the Hind ? It also trims the rudder on pressing the trim button on the stick, which means you can recenter your rudder once you have trimmed your hind for your flight regime. That avoids too extreme rudder position and leg tension
  11. Overcharged hind + sudden right rudder correction during a hover in conditions already demanding max power (high temp, OGE hover, high alt, etc...) can probably lead to a temporary loss of generator
  12. Wow! Funny I have the complete opposite impression : I find the Hip easier to land, mainly due to the largest wheel placement, making it more stable on ground. OTOH the Hind is to me the most stable chopper in forward flight BY FAR compared to all others. It's plane-like stable, allowing us to make very close formation flying, for example.
  13. Isn't it what Rongor said? "Whenever your rpm gets too low, you can trade in speed for an increase of rpm by pulling the stick back gently (flaring)."
  14. Not quite sure, isn't only one active at any moment, depending on wind conditions?
  15. If you notice, when switching ON the Gyro 1, the upper left ADI gets activated, when switching Gyro 2, the (tinier) lower right ADI gets activated, which resemble a backup ADI to me, hence my guess
  16. Awwww. "Pedal force trim" ? What is this sorcery? Now I'm completely lost in all these trims / AP
  17. I guess it selects which of both gyros (main & backup) is used as a source for the various AP and nav systems
  18. The Yaw "trim" is kind of misunderstood and it explains the behavior seen in your video and against which you struggle. You'll notice that on ED missions, quick missions, etc.... that Yaw Channel is not selected. The Yaw channel is not a trim, it's linked to the gyros and, the moment it is pressed, it will apply yaw so that the nose keeps pointing in the azimuth it was when you pressed it. So imagine you press the Yaw channel ON button while facing north, then turn right eastward. The Yaw channel will apply left Yaw to try to push the nose of the aircraft back north. It's working the same way as the Yaw channel in the Ka50, actually, if I'm not mistaken. I basically don't use this channel. It should be usefull during a missile run, for example, you align on target, activate Yaw AP, and don't have to bother with the rudder anymore to keep your nose right on your target azimuth.
  19. I also added their dampener addon, which adds to the stiffness when spring is removed, the thing may be too responsive without spring and without dampener
  20. Yaw AP was off, I purposefully do not activate the yaw channel But I also removed the spring from my MFGs so my rudder is not auto centering. I'll try to center the rudder and check the virtual input window
  21. Beware, these are purely my interpretations it could be something else entirely.
  22. This is a very good question. I entered yesterday a state where I completely lost tail rotor authority and the hind was uncontrollably rotating, while being near a hover, in windy conditions. I had no clue how to get out of it, I ended up rotating slow enough to attempt landing, but with catastrophic result
  23. It was mentioned in the patch notes, in the known issues, that GPU scaling was causing issues in the operator sight. You gotta wait for a fix for this one
  24. I really didn't feel it as jerky as you make it when co-piloting for a friend... Sure there is absolutely zero stabilization at work?
  25. Not sure the optical sight follow the chopper , I think it's more about the stabilization not being perfect
