Helicopters in Hawaii....try it in FSX.

Recommended Posts

Currently flying helicopters in Hawaii. Un-friggin-believable. I could never fly helicopters with confidence in FS9...controllably and enjoyably. I'm doing it now on every island with 20+ frames, and 30 or more in some areas. Since I really flew in helos on various islands when I physically was there, it means a lot to me. Try it on any island.....You'll like it!

Helicopter flying in FSX really is wonderful now. Since I make my living within the real helicopter world, it is a joy to have some fun flying the helicopters in the simulator. Can not wait until Jordan over at Hovercontrol updates his FS9 models [start crossing fingers here].duttonhttp://dutton.fsblogger.com/

I flew the Robinson around Hawaii in the mission the other night, and it was great. I set realism sliders all the way left, since I am not too skilled with helos. Anyway it was a lot of fun. I still have trouble hovering, but overall it seems easier to control than in FS2004.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2.5 ghz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (94.47), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2 GB Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8, WD 250 gig 7200 rpm SATA2, CoolerMaster Praetorian

Kauai and Maui look really great. The area around PHLI has been dramatically improved and now looks much better. Land class is still a little off- cane fields with trees :) but it gets the point across.

How about the Maui mission? Interestingly-I had just gotten back from there when I got the beta to test. Not only was I amazed at the scenery and whales etc.-but on that narrated tour I learned more about the island than when I had been there-just great! I can see a whole series of world wide tours like this-it is going to be great!http://mywebpages.comcast.net/geofa/pages/rxp-pilot.jpg
