Indeed, which is the reason why I did not buy the Gazelle, because I prefer the Bo-105 and I don't need two helicopters in my inventory that are almost exactly the same. So I'm waiting for the Bo-105.

Yes, but it may be a matter of "don't hold your breath...." and you never get to fly either of them! I personally like the Gazelle as a light strike, I think having the very capable 105 at some point would be awesome!!

If the Bo-105 gets cancelled I can still go ahead and buy the Gazelle instead. But as long as the Bo-105 is still in development I will wait for it.

I'm gonna buy the BO-105 despite owning the Gazelle if the FM is done by a credible dev and/or good reviews.

Light attack/scout helis are great fun, but the Gaz still feels as if it has questionable aspects.

And +1, I'm with Seph on this. As much as I love it sometimes the FM feels a little whacky

Totally agree with both of you guys !!! As much as I enjoy the Gazell, there must me something fishy with its FM.

E.g. lift is too much pitch dependent instead of Collective inputs; overall without going deeper into details: Too easy and forgiving to fly.

Hopefully, Mitech-5 will do a better job for their upcoming BO-105. If they do it well (at the beginning the FM at least), to me a must have and I'll buy it for shure.


All the best, and good luck in developing this nimble bird for us

Yup, same here. Though the GAZ is probably my favorite helo due to how easy it is to fly. Now if I could only figure out how to fly and shoot at the same time...

I fly it from the left seat with a hat switch controling the camera.

Yeah I do it too, I'm just not that good at doing it

The whole lack of AI multicrew mostly just pisses me off, but its probably hard(er) to implement for helo's, you have to have good comms between crew members, which would also be hard to manage with jester wheel. I'm hoping the Mi-24 comes with some sort of gunner AI.
