Anyone know if there's a way to get simshaker to work with this mod? I keep getting simshaker error messages while flying

Tried this tonight, very impressive start, however one bad thing for me, the forcefeedback is not enabled on this helo so I have a limp stick in my hands making it impossible to fly properly, any chance a constant force can be applied, or if you are feeling super generous the regular FFB effects ? Great work, really brings home how badly I think the Gazelle flies as well.

Flew this for 45 min this morning. Flowing the river at 12 feet and thru town I love this would like to see the control indicator working though. I cant wait for all features to be working. Great job nibbylot. Also I use the Puma Pro Flight system and pairs nice with it

WOW This is a fantastic moment for the DCS community. Really hope that you continue this effort in creating a realistic Heli EFM so that others can then start creating more mods.
Thanks also for starting with my favourite Heli manufacturer

Is there a kneeboard folder for this. I did not see one and made one in saved games folder but things I put in it like the start up a control panel document don't show?

Amazing module! It's a blast to fly already. I'm a helicopter sim developer myself. Can you give me some insight into how you generated the data, and where you expect to go with the flight model? I would contribute if you need some help

center_of_mass = {0,-0.84,0},

Furthermore - since the y and z axes are swapped in DCS, the moment_of_intertia in entry.lua should probably be:

moment_of_inertia = {446, 979, 1219, 50},

(CptSmiley also did that in his F16 FM compared to the original source).

As a hint for all testers of this bird:
The given moments of inertia do not represent the max load out of the chopper.
For the little bird that would be 3,100 lb or 1,406 kg.
The given values are for 2570 lb or 1157 kg.

Besides of that: The OH-6 is a great Mod and I really hope it gets some attention from the community in terms of suggestions and improvements.

Thanks, nibbylot. Appreciate your work!
Hey Rifter, where did you find these mass/balance values? I'd like to see if I can find similar tables for other airframes.
