Unfortunately Eagle Dynamics do not make simple FM's anymore. There was an option that you could turn on called, Game mode. It should simplify the flight model of the Hind if it implemented or not and even works anymore I have no idea. I haven't tried it in years.

Ten is not too young to learn. 

Even in War Thunder you have to use mouse and keyboard for simple FM.

and that's a good thing. If they were to make 2 versions of FM's for each module, it would take forever for new stuff to come out.

They are a small dev team after all. I have been waiting years for the Corsair and currently they are working on the Apache, so

it looks like I'm going to have to wait a while longer.

You can do something like that with 10

The F4U Corsair is being developed by Magnitude, and the A-7 Corsair II by Flying Iron. Neither are part of the ED dev team working on the Apache. The F4U is, by my best estimation, fairly close, since most of the work right now is on UV stuff for the 3D model of the cockpit. The A-7 is farther out, but the point is that neither are affected by the Apache since both Corsairs are being developed by third-party developers.

I love when people likes to tell other people what they must do, so many smart people around.😏

 

I apologize.  I didn't mean to come across like I was "telling you what to do."

I was just suggesting that a 10 yr old could learn to fly the Hind.

Of all the helos in the game, it is the most stable with proper trimming.

I am an old man who got into gaming only within the last 10 or 12 years.

I now have a 10 yr old great grandson who can play rings around me.

Don't underestimate what kids can do with today's modern tech.

You are right. Perhaps I should have used examples that ED is actually working on, like 

the WWII version of Marianas and associated assets. If the F4U was released today,

we wouldn't have any comparable opponents or a proper place to fly it.

No apologize needed, but with a worn out Saitek X52 the Hind is too much a first experience for a 10 years old kid.

@Stratos

A worn out stick is a challenge for any one, X52 or otherwise.

I find the Huey is harder to learn. The Hind has

a good AP if you know how to use it. I mostly fly hands off just using

the trim hat for attitude corrections.  GL/HF

The game flight model in the Hind is not implemented, If you select, your controls do nothing, it seems is planned, but not added yet.

At the moment simple flight model is low priority. If I have any news I will try to pass it on.

 

thanks

On that subject, a good thing to do with said 10yr old, is build a two-seat Sim-Pit with'em. It'd be a great bonding experience, and a great learning experience as well. It may be costly, but if the end result is that the kid goes on to be a pilot, electrician, or any other technical field, I think that'll be a win. And the best way to ignite that spark, is to let them build something they otherwise would never get to do.

 

It's just a suggestion though, but I think it would be a worthy long-term thing if done right.

Imho SFM is a waste of time. What makes DCS unique is it's depth and complexity. If someone wants simple, there are dozens of light flight themed games out there. Better put that dev time into polishing realistic mechanics. Simple flight model, game avionics, ... just ballast. Don't waste time on the 0,1% ED.
