I got the hang of flying it, but what hit me the most was the landing (BTW, I have tested the sim 4 times, 1 of them was a ok landing, 2 of them were a crash, and 1 was a perfect landing)

When I lower the collective when landing, I notice the vibrations in the cockpit...and of course, there's a 50-50 chance of either land it and slam the gear, or "go-around" and try again.

I thought that the engine was "dying" on me...but I don't know what was it actually.

Can somebody explain me the vibration?

Thanks in advance!
Keep this 2 rules:
-never descend more than 4m/s under 40km/h airspeed
-keep same speed in km/h as altitude in radio altimeter in meters in flat land without wind when landing
