Well there are still guys who like to yoke ;). What I mean are fluent moving needles on the instruments like on the airplanes of Realairsimulations and the Sibwings Safir?BTW www.hovercontrol.com seems to be down.Hugo

Owen Hewitt's Bell 206B III JetRanger has a nice VC with pretty smooth guages. It's on the front page of Hovercontrol.

There is one chopper that puts a smile on my face every time! :)The Nemeth Designs Sikorsky S-76 features super smooth 3D XML gauges in the VC! :9 Here is an old video of mine where you can see the gauges in action (I can fly her better now) :-wedgehttp://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=XvoCHjv23U0..and here's a few pics of my fav livery. :-kewlhttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v640/ede...00/fsscr052.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v640/ede...00/fsscr055.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v640/ede...00/fsscr059.jpg

Yes that's one of mine ....still on my HD for some reason :-hmmmHere is another photoreal paint from me:http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=...hor=&CatID=rootNow there was one problem with S-76 when I bought it ...the gauge bitmaps were 32 bit (not good for FPS). I reduced all mine to 8 bit.I think they fixed this so look for this fix in the Nemeth design forum.Another tip ...start the engines from the VC only.I also added radalt callouts and the Reality-XP 530 :9Oh another tip ... never use full torque (if you want to fly smoothly)Apart from that it is my chopper of choice and I love it ..plus I'm sure you know smooth gauges are essential in a chopper. :)

Well based on this thread I tried the Bell 412 and all I have to say is WOW:-hah. What a great Helicopter and you cant beat the "price". Up until now the only Helicopter I have flown in FS has been the Aerosoft Jayhawk and Seahawk. I like them so much I bought both pakages. WEll I have been flying around in the LA City Fire Department with the Photo scenery of LA. Stunning, for both add-ons.Thanks for the heads up to everyone in this thread.
