The main reason why is perspective. DCS has a ton of limitations of how it deals with control inputs and so forth, plus what sort of "feel" you can get it from it compared to real aircraft. I often think real pilots are quite over complimentary to DCS, especially if they only have a little bit of time in it and don't see all the issues too because they are like, hey this is pretty cool and only scratch the surface versus the serious players here.
You could be right about that.

One thing this Sven dude stressed, was that he only had used real life Kiowas for making this module.
And as a side note they are making one of the pilot models female!

Thanks, I missed that. And interesting that he says flight engineer. The proper term would probably be crew chief.

That I completely agree.

One needs to understand the DCS and how to configure it and what it tries to be.
As anyone who has been flying with multiple different HOTAS systems, especially stick with extension or without, knows that the flight experience is totally different across those all. Throw a VR vs Display and again completely different experience. So based on what is then the opinions of real pilots made?

No, he meant Flight Engineer. That's what the Air Force calls Crew Chiefs if you're an Army-type person. There's more to it than that, but that will suffice.

My apology, didn't know there was a pay to view scheme on the VOD. When I posted the link, he was live and you don't need to pay to view live content.

No worries, it would be interesting to hear I guess, but not $5 interesting to me.

At the end of the day all it means is that he isn't an actual pilot with the experience to evaluate the FM in meaningful ways.

Still... His wording was mostly that it felt a lot closer to the huey than the current Gazelle. And we could clearly see it behaving a lot more like a helicopter should.

EDIT: Also, you can see at least shorter snippets here

I'm obviously not suggesting to jump on it before seeing proper reviews or anything, but only that I personally think it looks promising based on what I've seen so far.

I watched a few hours of the stream - was very impressed.

having a R/L Helicopter rating - i watched the FM intently and listened to what Sven, the dev said.

The flight model looks great (although hard to assess while watching) a lot of improvements over Gaz FM were evident - infact looked NOTHING like the gazelle, even with the OH-58Ds SCAS turned on.

The interior modelling was fantastic.

Im very pumped for this, had low expectations, but ive changed my mind.

This is one bad ass little helo

Good Work PC
