In general, this behavior is correct.

With a single main rotor spinning one way, the force will "push" the body of the helicopter to rotate in the opposite direction.

The tail rotor is not fixed - the angle of the blades are changed by the anti-torque pedals, to continually adjust the amount and direction of force applied at the tail.

The amount and direction of force required changes continuously through different flight regimes, so takeoff is different from hover, is different from steady forwards flight, is different from deceleration or descending.

Tail rotor is a pilot input along with cyclic and collective, and by itself with no pilot input does not automatically counter the main rotor torque.

Hope this helps.

For further detail on this topic as it relates to DCS, I recommend watching some DCS Huey flight tutorial videos.

You also have translating tendency, where you have to apply lateral cyclic to compensate for the lateral thrust generated by the tail rotor. Thats why they generally hover with one skid low, depending on the rotation direction of the main rotor. For example in a clockwise rotating main rotor, the tail produces thrust to the right of the helicopter to compensate so it will hover with the right skid low...

I noticed today that if you are carrying full rockets and M134 you are overweight at 100% fuel, dropping it down to be in weight has helped my landings greatly.

i think this light should be white.
we had some issues with our mods, the landing light turns into purple.
the code must changed for the light

btw: nibbylot thanks for this nice mod. (i made an DCS-BIOS profile for it)

Pity I liked the purple. Theres no option to get an internal light for the player A/C. I tried both lighting options configured. I am quite enjoying this module for learning rotary wing, Would be nice to have VRS and Ground efffect, but its teaching the basics quite well while I wait for Kiowa.
