As a sidenote, all Russian made aircraft have speed in kmh displayed, except the MiG-29G, which is essentialy an A version upgraded for the german Luftwaffe.


Same for altitude with meters instead of feet.

Anyway, the Huey is realy a joy to fly, if it only had the multicrew stuff already..... when we get it, i have already a few people to train them in helo flying

Go for it, enjoy it, pure flying without helping systems

I would pay for a complete new overhaul of the Huey (updated 3D/texture/multiplayer) even though I bought the original one.

So would I, but we'll see what's in store:



This was my question after I read the newsletter describing the Ka-50's updates...

it turned out that it was necessary to fix not only the engine, but also the Main Rotor dynamics. Therefore, the process has gone quite deep. We apologize for the wait, but we have to redo engine+Main Rotor performance thoroughly, otherwise we need crutches in modeling, which we really don't like.
Besides, who is able to answer the questions that we still have about the engine, we will be grateful for the help (see the attachment).

I know. I was referring to visual updates, to make both the Huey and Mi-8 finally compatible with DCS 2.5.

Well, my guess is they will, but since the KA-50 and then the A-10C are first in line, and will take a considerable amount of work, the UH-1H & Mi-8 come after that. And with the Huey they will redo the entire engine and rotor performance as well, so it's only logical they don't comment already because it's gonna take a while.

This community is not well known for it's patience.

I do that all the time. It just drops. Sometimes it catches on fire first.

Hey 303, did you end up getting the Huey? I wonder if it lives up to your expectations. Happy flying!

Cyclic over-deflection , or negative gs or too-rapid unloading of collective + flapping rotors = mast bumping . Chuck's guide for Huey has a very nice section on principles of helicopter flying

The Huey is an excellent choice for a first chopper.
Always remember that the main body swings under the blades, an adjustment in the cyclic may instantaneous change the blades but the body of the chopper will swing its weight in the direction it was travelling. Learn to think ahead and compensate for this lag of input to reaction.


The MI-8 is as good as it gets in DCS, full study sim perfection. cockpit needs a revamp to the current graphics engine but it is coming.


the KA-50 is a sublime Attack chopper in DCS and it will just get better. This module pulled me back into sims and then some!
When you are moving fast and need to manoeuvre, go left lad... go left. It is predictable but you can out turn anything.... anytime!
The pedals are equally as important as any other controller in this machine.


The Gazelle sets a new standard in any combat helicopter simulator in my book and in my book, I played it all. I started when microprose gunship was first released and apart from a gap of 10 - 15 years (nothing of interest was around) I played everything chopper.
Only team apache came close to what the gazelle achieves now. The flight model is not perfect but the limitations of the machine and how you have to crawl well within the range of the fabulously superior Russian air defences is simply pure bliss!
This nasty little French girl belongs in the top echelon of hunters, and boy does she have what she needs to do her job.
Not enough weapons, not enough power, but you will learn very quickly how a roof mounted optical sight is just the bonus a true hunter requires.


Looking forward to the little guys (OH-58D, OH-6 - AH6 littlebird, Lynx AH-7).
