Wilco Tilt Rotor help!

Recommended Posts

Wilco does not seem to have a forum?

The Tilt Rotor definitely could use some extra help learning...

She wont hover in place...keeps drifting forward with stick centered...Any ideas?

the forward movement is pronounced...not just inching forward...the article says that fsuipc calibration is needed for ths AC, but no info on what or how...

Yes, many ...LoL

A few questions first:

1. Are you using the BA609 Tiltrotor as is (like you got it from Wilco) or did you install any VSTOL addon later (like RCBvcb40.zip) ?

2. Does it do a true vertical takeoff with nacelles set at 90 degrees (== Full Flaps set) ?
(if so , means that FSUIPC is working properly).

3. You say "forward movement is pronounced" 
Can you quantify that (a few Knots, 10-30 knots, or higher) ?

Also, you say "the article says that fsuipc calibration is needed for ths AC"
Not sure which article you refer to, but fsuipc calibration in NOT needed (that would require a registered version of FSUIPC).
What IS needed, is that your controller (joystick, or whatever, axis) are calibrated properly. Like with any aircraft.
FSUIPC just helps doing those calibrations, but can be done in other ways as well (and not specific for this Tiltrotor).

Lastly: 
Observe the pitch/bank attitude and windspeed / direction, while the aircraft is "drifting"...…
The Tiltrotor will only hover "on the spot" (in the simplest case) when windspeed is zero, pitch/bank attitude is zero, and nacelles at 90 degrees.
In any other case, you can still make it hover "on the spot", by using stick input (elevator/aileron axis).
- "Elevator axis" input controls pitch attitude.
- "Ailerons axis" input controls bank attitude.
Even in windy conditions (and full Realisme set in FSX), you can compensate the wind to obtain a hover on the spot.

Example: if there is a 10-knots wind coming from 2 o'clock direction relative to the aircraft, you can compensate it to hover on the spot, by:
- Pitching down a little.
- Rolling (bank) to the right a bit.

Does this solve your problem ??

She is indeed a difficult lady to master but lots of fun, unfortunately Hoverring is quite difficult as both rpm and cyclic imputs must be CAREFULY Balanced, she has a front run-away tendendy as it seem to have a HEAVY nose.

Unfortunately nothing new, I've been yelled at quite a  few times,it's very upsetting as Feelthere/Wilco seem to me as the only forums that behave like this. it's the moderator,I think who is probably underpayed,  never mind . stick to this forum and we will try to help yo in best way we can.

 

Hope the  New Year recieves you well.

On the wilco pub firstpage there's a support form at the bottom of the page. this is not very helpful either I am afraid to say. Try that and read the manual,which you can find under Start\Wilco...

I found this forum where they also discuss the Tilt:

Renmman I just found this on the forum of the site I suggest above:

 

"feelThere had nothing to do with theTilt Rotor . you need to contact Wilco Publishing for support and suggestions."

I don't know what to think anymore ?

Why do I even bother to apperantly waste my time in replying in this thread ???? (see my first reply).
Since the OP doesn't seem to read it, c.q. answer the  questions asked.

The best (and I dare say: only) source on helping to solve  any (perceived) problems on VSTOL/hover in the Wilco BA609 Tiltrotor product was right here.
Being me, as the creator of it.

I'm out … Success ….
