Is there a perfect helicopter in P3D 4.5HF1?

for the n-th time, HTR from years ago offered external flight model of rotorcraft.  it models AFCS and non-AFCS equipped helicopters very well provided good control HW is used.  

Thanks. I tried HTR 1.62se with both the Robinson R22 stock P3D and the Milviz MD530 using the inbuilt dynamics but found handling to be too extreme on the other end almost impossible to keep it level hover. I know heli's aren't easy to fly and I trained on the dodosim206 for FSX, but there is no way that HTR was handling the helis properly in my situation. So I now I just patiently wait for the new dodosim and fly the 530 just for fun because it is easy to handle (no more difficult than the stock R22 for me).

Yeah that was what I was thinking too but P3D offers solutions developers aren't using. I'm starting to get tired with old models that are made compatible with P3Dv4 but are not really built for it. The SDK allows developers to build external flight models has for a long time. Instead some developers sit on their old models as long as they can probably because they can't afford the redevelopment costs.

Yes, that's true. But it appears like very few developers are capable or willing to do this as the product prices will skyrocket along with a long development times. I don't see how most developers are going to start making custom flight and engine dynamics in the future. In my opinion that's not very realistic, so LM should definately do something with their "in-house" flight and engine dynamics.

Same problem here. I couldn't get the HTR to work the way it's supposed to with the Milviz 530 for some reason. Not sure what the problem is with this particular model, because it works very well with other helicopters.

I also cant get HTR 1.62 to work with P3D V4.5.  I heard v1.5 works but I have no idea where to find it.

I last used HTR 1.5 back when I had P3D4.1 and it worked well. It is important that FSUIPC must be installed.

With the P3D4.5 version, I haven't tried running HTR 1.5 yet. You can try it yourself, I saved this version (sadly, Hovercontrol is no longer available at this time).
