Yes. Actually I crank it to max.

How hair raising is it at max, BTW? I'm using the default 50% and even that's quite noticeable IMO.

Yes noticeable but in VR it is subtle but lets you know when transitioning in or out of translational lift remember it's not like a binary it's a transitional effect depending on relative airspeed over the rotor.

The sink rate, which shouldn't exceed 3 m/s if the chopper is hovering.

And during transition according to manual even only 0.2 m/s


So you mean with increased sinkrate in DCS Mi-8 the visible vibrations increase aswell?

No, I meant you'll get the shakes when you're slowing down, and they are a good cue for starting to pay closer attention to the sink rate.

I used to get flown around a lot in helicopters when I was serving in Northern Ireland. That noise always signified us going away from base or arriving. When in base not on patrols ets we could say with some degree of accuracy who was coming in and out. Different noises for other platforms etc. We had Wessex, Lynx, Puma and the odd Chinook for company troop movement.

I know this doesn't help but just a point to make of interest.

Actually a very relevant point, I know it's only a sim however I find there is a lot of information to be gained from listening to the rotor sound and the turbine sound when flying helicopters.
