cheers
It´s useful for refuelling too

Helos are amazing in VR, but if you can't hold a stable hover yet, keep that airsickness bag handy in the leg pocket of your flight suit. The only thing that has made me sick in VR is lurching all over the place in a UH-1 trying to land on an oil platform, when I was first learning to fly it.

Hi X-31
I have been struggling with an old joystick but just took delivery of a Warthog HOTAS so I am hoping things will ease up.
As a private Heli pilot in real life with ratings on the Huey ( Bell Jet Ranger), Loach ( Hughes 500) and several other piston types I thought jumping in to the DCS Helicopters would be a good path. Unfortunately with the VR on it presents another issue LoL
I am hoping once I get rudder pedals sorted this should be a giant step forward in the hovering area.
Thanks for the input

Well, given your real-world experience, the lurching all over the skies probably won't be the issue it was for me (lots of IRL time in helicopters, but not as a pilot). Then again, you would not be the first pilot to find that the muscle memory built in real flying may actually make desktop sim flying more difficult, especially with the very different feel of the stick, collective and pedals from real life.

When I took my Warthog grip and put it on a Virpil VPC WarBrd base, it made hovering helos much easier because it was much smoother. When I replaced the included cams with the "Cosmosim" centerless cams Virpil sells, it made another huge difference. And if you get pedals such as the MFG Crosswinds, they can be modded with a hydraulic damper in place of the centering spring for what I am told is a much more realistic feeling.

The one real challenge is a good collective (on a reasonable budget), though Virpil is developing one. Makes for a fun DIY project though.

Hi, well I thought I had a solution for the rudder as I had an old set with toe brakes but unfortunately they were game port type connector so I bought a converter to USB and they just don't seem to work as we'll as I expected so I'll be putting them up for sale on Ebay as they would be more suited to something like MS Flight sim etc. I just can't afford to go the route of buying another usb set right now.
I would love to go down a similar route as yourself but again the costs are prohibitive for me at the moment!!!

Thanks for the response
