Appache: one day. It's a long way to achieve. Both ED and the community want it. Right now ED is focused on MI 24 and F18.

Sublime, I can virtually guarantee you're misusing the trim and autopilot modes if it's harming your performance =) Just prior to takeoff I engage the primary modes (except heading hold) and never touch them again. Heading hold can be slightly helpful during hover or takeoff. I sometimes use autohover to assist in maintaining a stable hover, but that's on a pinky switch on/off. You shouldn't be ''managing'' anything. That's the whole point of the systems.

The Ka-50s ap channels serve much the same function as the Flankers FCS. Yes, you can fly without it, but without anything to dampen control movements it makes the aircraft twitchy and over responsive. You turn them on, then leave them alone.

For trim, make sure in the Ka-50's option tab you set it to where you click the trim button and it holds until you return the stick to neutral. This eliminates the erratic behavior, and is what it should be set to if you're not using a real cyclic/collective setup.

The Ka-50 is by far the easiest to fly and most idiot proof of the helos available thus far, if it's not it's 100% because the person doesn't understand the controls. I fought it a lot in the early days, too, but once I figured it out... I can fly it blindfolded.

Its just my opinion.
I could careless about the BS anyways - theres what 8 IRL? LOL they should have made the KA52. 2nd, a Mi28 would have been better IMO, and Mi24 best of all IMO
The KA-52 would be exactly the same as KA-50, except you have a second pilot to do other things like navigation, targeting and communication.

KA-50 is like a F/A-18C
KA-52 is like a F/A-18D

The beauty of KA-50 is that it allows you to focus one task at the time well, while automation does others. Meaning you are less stressed in it than Hornet pilot is in C because that helicopter flies itself if wanted.

Ka-52 for starters has builtin radar. Can carry more types of ATGMs. Saying its 2 seat Ka-50 is oversimplifying it.

Yeah, completely the same aircraft https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamow_...623355742).jpg
MFDs, FLIR, Radar, Ataka Missiles, all not worth mentioning

The F-18 can also fly by itself if the pilot wishes to, but that doesn't even matter since that comparison is nonsense anyway.

first of all Ka-52 is able to do night ops, since it's got fully capable 360° FLIR, which includes IR-channel

then of course, RADAR, DIRCM, MAWS, LWR, RWR, new datalink, Iglas, Vikhrs II + Atakas

it's nowhere near Ka-50 in terms of avionics

Thanks, but mind you sir, Ive literally not flown the KA50 in years now. Its nothing I can say is holding my performance as its been so long.
I vaguely remember it being difficult to fly and keep SA, and also not have the rotors hit eachother etc. I remember her being fast and vikhrs working well. But remember this was a few years ago and the ground forces sucked more and I quickly tired of jsut hovering and shooting vikhrs beyond stand off. I didnt progress to more advanced stuff than that - that was the best I could do - ha ha.
Im too swamped to dl the KA50 now though. I honestly am. Im in AG51 and RIO a f14 sometimes stick one; Im flying the excellent Hunters/Yalu campaign for the F86 now; I got the JF17 and am in love with it.
Frankly the hinds is the only new module for me thats announced right now.

ok and thats cool but I was never saying either was better. I said *what I thought I liked better personally and aesthetically at that*. I def didnt mention F18s, Im a F14 guy thank you very much.
While what you say may be true; you dont seem to understand my point. You arent going to *make* me like a module. I never said "Ka50s suck" I said I personally didnt like ka50 of *all* the modules. Oh well. I didnt say " I demand my money back! " or anything ridiculous. I dont care if the AP channels allow me to psychically control death drones; I just know I want to fly the mi24, and not the KA50. and until the Mi24, I probably will stick with the already somewhat overwhelming list of planes I end of flying (f14, uh1, Jf17, f86, f5,)

Mi-24: there will be multi-crew support, but later in the Early Access. AI co-pilot for Mi-24 will be more sophisticated than Jester.
