Helicopter Crash Tolerance

Recommended Posts

How can the crash tolerance of a particular helicopter be increased? I ask because I was noticing that the Aerosoft Huey X seems to crash too easily. I drop from about two feet causes a crash. Now, that probably wouldn't be too great on the landing skids, but the helicopter would certainly continue to function, so this seems a tad unrealistic. Do I need to go into the cfg file? Or the AIR file?

 

Thanks,

Any ideas? As I've grown more accustomed to the Huey, I've gotten pretty good at getting it into a nice hover, but even when I put it down slowly, it still crashes.

you can turn off crash tolerance in the realism setting or edit the aircraft.cfg, go to [contact points] for the skids and look at the 5th column for each contact point. This column defines the impact damage threshold (ft/min). bump it up and see if it cures your problem.

 

i personally turn off crash tolerance as i know when i make a bad landing.

Yup, I'm with you on that one whenever I have a chopper in FSX which does dodgy crash detection. The Huey is a tough bird, anyone who has ever read Chickenhawk knows that it could be really banged onto the skids and still be just fine.
