Default A big big thank you !!

Hello ,

I introduce myself : i am 35 , i both am a private pilot helicopter and airplane .

I practice flight simulator for about 12 years

I would like to thank the team for the udge work they did on the Huey .Let me explain : i us to fly the small R22 wich is a good school because he as not a lot of power and has a low inertia rotor .I flew once a Hughes 500 too .

AND when i fly the dcs huey the behavior of this bipale is just AMAZINGLY realistic in thoses similarity :

- coordination of rudder and collective

-slow transition to get hoovering gently without the need of a lot of power in a small time.

-the slin mod wich is JUST GREAT !

-AND most of all the AUTOROTATIONS !! wich are so realistic when you cut the power , when you flare etc ...

-the effect on the force feedback2 joystick when you use the trim !!

I never flew the Huey BUT the physical behavior of a bipale helicopter is here and that is (for me )the most important immersion factor


I love this sim and practice EVERY SINGLE DAY and get almost the same joy as when i fly the real helicopter ..




i use a modified old force feedback 2 joystick whith a collective i made myself .It is just a shame no one make nowaday a good force feedback anymore !

I put a video of my Fly in the mountain in New caledonia and a picture of my modified cyclic wich can be use as an inspiration for some guys .Sorry for my english .. am french

So once again thank you !!

Nice to hear that from an RL helicopter pilot
So now I'm thinking of booking a helicopter lesson, just to see how I'll manage the thing

Why don't you post the plans you used for your throttle support.

Welcome.

So, then, how do you compare FS and DCS World in realistic way?
What are the pros and cons for you?
And from now on, what will your attitude be about preferring DCS or FS to practice?

Thank you.

hello again and thx Hueyman ! CCR was the most apropriate song for this very best part of the flight ..

For the question about the coolective and the throttle support i did just get the plan for pvc tube from http://www.rogerdodger.net/diyflight...elicopter.html , very simple and cheap , you get a versatil helicopter /aircraft simpit (not the most beautifull for shure.. but USEFULL .

About FS(or prepar 3 d )versus DCS .. Well what i can say is that except the dodosim 206 , wich was the best helicopter for me and planes form A2A simulation i wasn t very statisfied of the behaviour of airplane or rotor craft ..

Perhaps X plane would be the most realistic civilian simulator for rotorcraft other than DCS ? i didn t try it for a long time a go .

That is my humble opinion .
