Purchased and happy. Just one question.

Could anyone give me more information on the following below please? In relation to engine effects. 

exponential decay and amplitude

Exponential Decay signifies that the effects will become less visible when the engine is at a higher RPM. This has a noticeable effect on propeller planes.

Amplitude dictates the amplitude of the movement.

Ah got it. Thanks. I’m trying to get the opposite with my rotary aircraft. The vibration gets more pronounced with increased torque (RPM in the sim as collective is linked to throttle) 

Do you have any presets for rotary aircraft at all?

Aircraft labeled as "Helicopter" have a custom dynamic for the long blades... You'll see the difference right away. The vibrations will increase as the blades spin faster.

Ah. Ok. I’m flying the Nemeth Designs CH-47. Not sure if it’s labelled as helicopter or not. On the default settings the engines certainly do not behave as one. Any ideas?

Funny but the vibrations start and then slow to a stop then start up slow to fast over a period of approx 10 seconds.

I don't have the Nemeth Designs CH-47... Can you post a video of the effect?
