Default Mi-8MTV2 Magnificent Eight help with vertical takeoff

Hi all

Im having trouble doing a vertical take off with the MI-8. Ive flown the huey a few times and can do vertical take off no probs but with the MI-8 I can get it off the ground but it seems to go forward like a fixed wing before it takes off? Am i doing something wrong?

It seems to travel forwards before take off

Thanks in advance

Pull the Stick a bit backwards AND to the right.
Optionaly I use the Trimmer to hold this Position of the Stick.
Push the right Pedal a bit, when you raise the collective.

Do you have stablisation turned on?

It might be worth including a track with the control position overlay turned on (RCtrl-Enter).

Green light/button in the middle of the centre console. If you're not sure, try a mission where your helo's engines are already running.

many thanks do you know what the keyboard shortcut key is for that? I tried an instant mission with engines on but this is where its happening. I raise the collective bit by bit but the copter just moves forward not up?

As mentioned pitch stabilization is essential with the MI-8. Also trim the cyclic slightly back and slightly right before take off.
