Great work! Fun to fly, but more difficult than the Huey for sure. Some behaviour also that is difficult to anticipate, at least for me. How realistic is the FM?
I know it has much less mass than the Huey, is nimble, but the seeming erraticness at times, apart from my lack of skills, might it be caused by some shortcomings in the FM?

Im having an issue getting it to work....im sure it is a me problem since so many others have it working. It stats to load but always goes to the map screen with the heli icon on the map. I cant seem to get it to load into the cockpit. I have tried quick flight. Mission editor etc. but no luck...any suggestions on what I did wrong. I am running it in VR with the HTC Vive if that may be the problem?

Found the problem, Norton AV blocked a file...if anyone else has an issue double check Norton AV quarantine files.

Took far longer than I care to admit to get up there, being a fixed wing pilot, Helos are a very different concept, but getting up here should be part of the AH-6J qualification process

Apache, cough cough.

Loving it! Even did a video about it!

If I may add to the list:

Need a zoom axis
re arm from ground - I assume this doesn't work as there is no radio currently?
Damage model- can control aircraft even after ejecting

On page 24 of the NASA-document which nibbylot has listed there is a table for the moments of inertia of the OH-6A.

You can find the NASA document here:
https://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/c...9800002851.pdf

Two weight configurations are displayed there:
Nominal weight and light weight and their corresponding Ix, Iy, Iz and Ixz values.
What’s missing in the NASA document are the moments of inertia for the max weight configuration.

Besides the OH-6A the NASA document also contains the test reports for:
BO-105C
AH-1G
UH-1H
CH-53D

I found similar NASA documents for the UH-1B and the UH-1C also.

Usually moments of inertia values for vehicles (no matter if airborne or ground) are really hard to come by.

@stromridersp: Sorry - haven’t found any AH-64 data yet.
