I finally spent some Quality Time this morning with the '47, and I’m very impressed. Everything “feels” right, including autorotations (which is where FSX and P3D reeeeally fell down). Although I haven’t flown a real '47 (bucket list item!), I find that the Realistic mode to be almost unflyable, so I’m using Medium mode with the tail stability set to zero (otherwise the pedals don’t work the way I’d expect).
Thank you for making such an awesome heli model for MSFS! I will say, though, that if the real aircraft is really that underpowered, I sure didn’t know that before. With the Guv turned off, I can barely get off the ground if I keep things in the green (rotor rpm) and yellow (manifold pressure), at least at Davis-Monthan AFB, which is where I’ve been flying (2500 feet-ish MSL).
Question: I watched a few Youtube videos about starting up and taking off, and – do you model the engine warmup time? I have to admit that I haven’t been paying attention to that sort of thing so far. I just start 'er up and pull pitch fairly soon thereafter.
Question 2: can the carb heat be mapped to a control? I wasn’t able to figure it out.
