Please don't say that you are useless at helicopters 😉 It all started somwhere for all of us. And we started to suck first at flying helos!

I flew a lot the DCS Huey and the sounds of this one seem right. The behaviour seems good too, for example by seeing how it hovers.

Ahhh...the lovely sound of Huey rotors slapping the air into submission!

Hadn't even heard any rumors of this one.  Looks good!

I love that whap whap sound. It will always be the definitive "chopper" sound for me. The Jet Rangers that I used to commission for photo shoots sound like that too. 

I miss hearing it on the X-Trident Bell 412 that I've been flying the most lately, but it's a different rotor system (articulated 4-blade vs. the Huey and Jet Ranger teetering head 2-blade), so less "whap" in the sound.

Me too I miss the whap whap sound of the Huey/Jet Rangers when I fly on other helos... to an extent that I"m wondering if the other helos have correct sounds lol

Yeah, I think the other helos have fairly realistic sounds. High blade count rotors just sound different. You also get more turbine whine with the larger twins.
