H21C Helicopter - Not getting enough lift?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,I tried the freeware H21C heli yesterday, and must say I was well impressed! Fantastic VC, amazing sound. Didn't realise freeware could be so good (it was my first ever fw download).However, I only got enough lift to slightly lift off (ie 100-150ft/min max on the VSI). I did the complete startup routine twice (both from C&D freshly loaded flight), but same problem. I then swapped to the Bell 206 just to check nothing was wrong with my Thrustmaster HOTAS, but that worked fine. Could it be something with throttle twistgrip vs collective lever? Any help highly appreciated!(...and yes I did remember to unlock the collective before T.O...)Aleks

I agree with you...it's a little slow....try adding a bit of collective, a little at a time, it should sorta "spool up" for you and provide you with enough lift to get going....just don't max the throttle out, you'll exceed engine limits....keep it in the yellow arc

H21C? That's the Piasecki flying banana, isn't it?If you were in hot weather and/or high elevation that can really affect how easy the Piasecki takes off.Helo's from the 1950's (piston powered) were not that powerful compared to later turbine designs.That is a great model isn't it.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2585 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2gb Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8 (1T), WD 150 gig 10000rpm Raptor, WD 250gig 7200rpm SATA2, Seagate 120gb 5400 rpm external HD, CoolerMaster Praetorian
