R22 Flight Model has changed in Open Beta branch

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Since more than two weeks there is an interesting discussion going on, on  the IPACS Forum

because one user (calling himself KalEl) recognized certain changes during the flying behaviour of the highly respected Robinson R22.

It took the authorities of IPACS almost two weeks or more :wacko: to give an adequate answer !

Below you can read the confirmation of Jet-Pack (Jan):



Sorry for the delay, I was away for a while and couldn't ask.

Yes we did change something in the R22. The rotor blades are now simulated as bendable! If you stop the rotor you can see how flexible they are, the blades can now twist and bend which of course also dampens some of the abrupt inputs and it also makes it a bit more stable and at the same time a bit softer and easier to fly. We did this to get more realistic simulation results in comparison to real world test data and to simulate the rotor response to stick inputs even better. The R22 flies extremely close to the data of the real world aircraft.



Hope this helps to all of you who became big fans of this amazing littler bird and how IPACS rendered it.
