Default Huey has more power?

I could have sworn that after this latest update, the Huey goes a bit faster and has more power even with exhaust temps slightly below the max green. Tried online and offline and really seems like it...

Just flew it again and noticed that when increasing speed in forward flight as you back off left pedal and are able to fly without the pedals, it doesnt yaw as much to the right and its a smoother transition.

Just seems a bit more stable as well...

Maybe you just all of a sudden got better? :-)

J/K. I haven't flown it since the update, but that'd be cool if it did get a little makeover. Just in time for my squadron's op lol......we got a long one coming Sunday!!

Check IGE OGE torque values for hovering to see if the engine got boomed up.

Took her for a toot 2 nights ago on PG, had a slick with 40% fuel, slick as in no racks but retained the toilet bowl and flare launchers. At hover torque it was still right up near the yellow line of my EGT gauge. I'm thinking it hasn't changed.

I wish the Bell 212 was modeled instead of the 204. In a previous life I worked as a forestry fire fighter on a helitack crew. Our 212 was an absolute work horse. My favorite though was the Bell 47 with turbine conversion.

As it is right now I feel like I'm playing EGT "death simulator" and not having much fun flying the 204.

Same here.. its just too much, I rather learn the harrier or the hornet. As it is, it has no use....

I've never flown a real Huey but this one definitely requires attention to the EGT now and has a lot less power than before, even when unloaded. In the book Chickenhawk the pilots did seem to think that the Huey was very underpowered for what was being asked of it. I have yet to ever destroy the DCS version though unless I wanted to test the EGT limits on purpose. It does need work though and pretty much always has, particularly with the startup procedure and power/EGT.

I am not a real helicopter pilot, like many of you I have a love for Huey and have been flying this one for a few years.

In Chickenhawk Bob Mason describes why the D model Huey was underpowered, the H has 300 or so more shp than the D. Air density and heat are enemies of helicopters from what I have gathered....on Caucusus map I have plenty of power, and nowhere near enough on the desert maps. Seems normal to me?

The EGT modeling does seem a bit exaggerated, but the helicopter is useable and more on the realistic side than it used to be. Not saying blowing up and shedding the main is realistic, but having limitations and consequences is. Before all of this you could wind it up to 50% torque, set you attitude hold, and blast out making 125kts without any issues. That's fairly unrealistic.

Now we have a hard limit, you have to trade gunners for gas, etc, and I like it. I hated being on ops and flying disciplined while some novice is zipping around running the red line, usually a squad mate who didn't fly Huey often and couldn't be bothered with how to actually fly one by the numbers.

I get a huge sense of satisfaction solving the problem, and am proud to say that I have only suffered 02 incidences, which is more than I'd be allowed in real life, one was my first, the other I predicted and kept flying it how I was anyways to prove a point to another member. Point is that you can fly this helicopter just fine without it being the "death simulator".

Keep a "weather eye" on your EGT like you do your torque gauge. I generally have about 5% less power available on PG than I do on Caucusus. Seems realistic to me?

I always cheat when building missions. For me, there's always a maximum of 15 Degrees Celsius in the persian gulf so my huey doesnt blow up as soon as I reach about 70 kias.
