Some nice videos.

 

I tried that hovering but I went all over and crashed.

 

 

Looks like the R22 is the most used heli for training.

 

How is he flying with the right hand where is the collective

These days and at least here in Europe, the R44 dominates for basic helicopter flight instruction. The R22 is still used though, as well as the Hughes 300.

The R44 is a new breed ?  

 

I like the Hughes 500D for XPX it's awesome. Though highly trim sensitive, it's like a runaway trim.

 

Back to hovering and crashing.

 

But how is he flying don't seem him use the collective and he Is climbing

The collective would be to the left of his seat, operated with his left hand.

 

Are you using the Dreamfoil R22? That's one of my favorites, only eclipsed by their new S300CBi.

 And I only the see the collective in the center

 

In the video? I didn't watch more than a few minutes, but I'd be positive that there's going to be a collective for the left hand seat, on the left side of that seat.

 

There's a left hand collective for the left hand seat in both the default R22, and the Dreamfoil R22.

k, let me check by sitting on the left side.

Yeah there is a lever on the left. Thanks Jimmy.

The helicopters require good hardware to be properly used in a flight simulator. Unfortunately having a full heli controller setup costs a fortune.

 

I had the chance to try one of those for the R44 some 6 yrs ago, with XP9, and then the same with FSX' DODOSIM.  Although the simulated models are very different, both simulations, used with the right HW, provide excellent experiences, but I preferred the XP9 heli sensation in that trial.

It can only work better with any aircraft type, less those Eunuch airbuses.... or modern fighters :-)

Ok, too many thin wires in the Logitech , I will have to very careful not to break them in places.

I bought a PVC Pipe for a USD cost of 1 and it is around 2 feet long and feels strong, the best part is the inner radius of the pipe seems would be easily fit the Logitech center pipe :),

 

But I don't know what should I keep the length of the pipe

I didn't do the wires atm ,but they are all connected.

 

Please do not disturb now I am in the Huey

 

For the huey I removed all the curves and deadzone and not twitchy at all now, but I am not sure if need to use a lot of cyclic for her to react to pitch or roll.

 

Now will try the mig21.

Well the Huey feels much better without the curves , but I am not sure about the Mig21 i find her quite sensitive


Oh no, now after modding the stick I have to move around a lot . in fact to pitch down I have to lean forward


But wow the AS350 is fun to fly now.

Well did make the stick working but I damaged the pins on the switches so I can't use them to trim , I taped a gamepad to the control and can adjust :) .

I've though about building or buying a proper cyclic many times. But then, when ever I think about it, I end up wanting a proper collective as well, preferable one with a throttle twist grip and perhaps a switch box at the top. And THEN I end up wanting proper helicopter pedals as well. And then... when I price it all out, I end up buying nothing at all, every time...

Hehehe , I think C-tek has some good stuff.

 

My aim is not the helis but fixed wings.

 

After modding the stick I got worried that won't be good for fixed wings so I fired up DCS tried with the Mig21 and the L-39 (removed all curves and deadzones) I found it difficult to fly , then I switched to the flanker and it wow.

 

I still don't know how well it would work with fixed wings though.

If you are using the R22, I'd definitely recommend getting the Dreamfoil version rather than using the default one. It's superior in every way, and you can also turn on stability settings if you find it impossible to fly :-)


Also, if you want a step up in speed, Alabeo's R66 is also pretty decent and great for sight seeing.

Yeah I will , but I heard it's very sensitive.

 

I have the AS350 which is a great bird .

 

Will look up the R66.

It is very sensitive, but you can turn it down. The max sensitivity only works well if you have a proper collective, but a normal controller makes it very hard to fly on max settings and I wouldn't worry that you have to turn the settings down. 

 

I knew someone who created a heli setup for his sim and then he went to do some real heli lessons. Apparently during his first lesson he was able to hover and impressed the instructor :-).

@Tony,

 

 There is a youtube about the hovering.

 

Hmm but I have a modded stick now , shouldn't it be much better than the sensitivity adjustments ?
