Where is VRS ?

Recommended Posts

Well,

 

supposedly VRS had been "re-enabled" for XP11.10 b5, so I picked my two Dreamfoil models, opened and saved both in Plane Maker to make sure they would be written with the "new tags", and went flying for 45 min, trying to enter VRS in all sorts of ways, at least in those ways it used to work in the past, or works right away in DCS as a comparison, or in youtubes we can find easily where pilots are training it IRL...

Nada !  Not even hints of VRS...

Confess I didn't try the S-76, because it "flies" so awkwardly, but I'll give it a fair try latter today...

I don't have time right now for testing but I'll take a look at it later in the Dreamfoil 407 and X-Trident Bell 412. 

I don't much like the default S-76 either, but we should test it there too. If there is a problem with VRS being totally absent in the sim, then Austin may only pay attention to a demonstration with the S-76.

P.S. I'm a bit wary of VRS modeling in X-Plane, because it used to be way too quick to develop in previous versions. The main problem, I think, is that we don't have the full range of warning signs you'd have in a real helo like sudden rotor vibration. It almost needs something like a screen shake, as well as sudden increase of sink rate, so we have a chance to get out of it. I don't think I ever did a successful VRS recovery in earlier versions of XP because it happened too fast and too strong, and usually at altitudes where there wasn't room to recover.

Sérgio ( Helisimmer ) just told me Austin is looking at it for additional fine tunning for the next beta!
