Collective Threshold & Collective Brake


Recommended Posts

In the settings for the Mi-8 there are 2 settings that I hadn't noticed before: Collective Threshold for Alt. Hold and Collective Break Mode. Neither in the manual nor in Chuck's Guide can I find anything about it. What are the functions of these settings? Can any of you explain this in more detail? Thx

I haven't seen these myself before, and I just noticed them. I believe that in the real Mi-8 and Ka-50, you have to press the collective brake handle to move the collective, and it will also "set altitude" if you've turned on altitude hold.

I'm gonna test a little, my guess is that if you map a button as the collective brake, you need to press this to move the collective at all, if that option is selected under the special menu.

Someone else my might give a better explanation though.

Cheers! ????

Manual and Chuck's guide are quite old, while these options were added only a couple of recent patches ago. Without any explanation though :/. Maybe Russian section of the forum holds an answer, but I haven't tried searching there.

From US Army Mi-17 Operators Manual. (2007)

 

2-31.1 Pilot’s Collective Stick

The pilot’s collective stick (Figure 2-2) is mounted on the cockpit floor to the left of the pilot’s seat. The stick includes the twist-grip throttle control with friction adjustment (11), covered control buttons for external cargo emergency jettison (9) and normal release (12), a spring-loaded N2 trim INCR/ DECR switch (7), a searchlight control button (10), and a CLUTCH RELEASE button (13). A hydraulic clutch holds the stick securely in any position, allowing the pilot to make smooth pitch adjustments and preventing the stick from creeping. Ordinarily, the clutch is adjusted manually using the handwheel (5) to allow the stick to be moved, without releasing the clutch, with a force of 45 to 55 lb. The CLUTCH RELEASE button activates the hydraulic clutch release system, allowing the stick to be moved with a force no greater than 3.3 lb. When the button is released, the clutch re-engages. The CLUTCH RELEASE button also disengages the autopilot altitude channel. The clutch release circuit is powered by 27 VDC. The ECLs are mounted on the left side of the collective bracket.
