Had an amazing…ly short first flight - I managed to map the collective axis in its reverse sense!
So my poor helicopter just leapt into the air unexpectedly at which point I completely lost control…LOL
However, I am pleased to report things got better in subsequent flights.
So I am curious about everyone’s flight model settings…
Despite the fact that I’m using a PFT Puma which has a long cyclic allowing for fine inputs, my ‘sweet spot’ in terms of the settings is as follows:
Cyclic sensitivity 65
Helicopter stability 30
Tail stability 0
I noticed that these values in realistic mode are something like 80/5/0…
Realistic mode is waaay to sensitive for me - is this because I’m a crap helicopter pilot or are others struggling when using the realistic settings?
Cheers and thank God I don’t have to pay for repairs!
