Default Would you buy a paid upgrade for Huey?

I would like know how many of us are willing to pay for a paid upgrade for our 7 years old huey.

* Cockpit textures
* 3D Model textures
* Other variants like B or D or maybe even Y!
* Other capabilities like bambi bucket, rescue vinch etc
* New weapons

I can surely pay for any upgrades above all.

For a Twin Huey or Venom? Absolutely.

For a reskin/refresh only? That would not be in line with the pattern we're seeing from ED for the Ka-50 and A-10C

So i'm posting this instead of replying to the poll...

I'm wondering how many of the "YES" votes are actually for just simple skin and texture upgrades?


@Wakeshift, I Couldn't have said it better! But still, vote in the Poll so your vote is counted...and to all, whether you post comments or not, please vote.

Continued development and improvements of existing platforms should be included with the original price of the module...unless we have the option at the beginning to purchase the "Extended Warranty Program" which is usually not needed with most purchases. Once we own a module, further superficial advancement of that product should be included.


Huey Venom would be great, but also all the H-60 variants would be awesome too!

Here's my favorite helicopter:

lol so am I. The Huey was released in 2013. Its 2020. Where's my damned multi-crew, ED?? In that time, you've had enough 'insufficient resources' to release a crap load of stuff including the Hornet, Viper, etc. But yet no multi crew.

Get your priorities straight.

I guess if it’s along the lines of what ED are doing a the moment - free upgraded model and textures (which are really showing their age (especially the cockpit textures and those awful external light reflections) and then paid airframe upgrade, then yes I would.

Love my Huey.

This seems to be ED's strategy now but I disagree with it.


If I buy a module for a good amount of money, I expect to get the best possible simulation of that particular aircraft.


If the version nr. at the time of my purchase was not the best possible simulation, then ED should provide upgrades / bug fixes free of charge because I paid for the best possible simulation of that particular aircraft.


We'll see how much money ED want to charge existing owners for such an update, but in general I find it poor business practice.
