If you fly this copter in online with others that not have the Heli, what they watch actually, the small general aircraft or the airliner?

Hope ASOBO solves that in a near future, in the FS2024 they stated that is solved.

Yes, I think even showing them a default helo would be better ...much better...mucho mejor...than showing them an airliner.

I've finally had a few hours with this heli... it's incredible!  The sounds, the visuals, the in depth systems.

Hey Ryan,

I have been thinking about picking this up, I am a terrible Heli Pilot lol which has me sitting on the fence a bit. The automation does look very good and all the videos I have seen are extremely positive.

It is superb.  I guess the most important question I have for you is:  what sort of controllers do you have?  I have a stick and ch throttle...so it kinda works like a collective.

Flying a heli with a yoke is doable but kinda weird.

Also you'll want pedals - those are important imo.

It is quite easy to fly as the auto flight system sort of assists you as you takeoff and land (this can be disabled with a cyclic trim release function) for full manual authority.

And apparently it will also takeoff and land fully automatically but I haven't tried yet.

This one and the H145 are certainly easier to fly than most heli’s with all of their automation.

Easier is definitely a relative term though as they’re still helicopters and challenging.  These are much easier to fly cross country though with their impressive autopilot capabilities that other devs haven’t yet implemented.

I have an Airbus Sidestick to my left, a Honeycomb Yoke in front of me and the Bravo Throttle to my right. For pedals I have a set of Virpil. Not the most realistic Heli setup but it should work.

Glad you're enjoying her, she looks a blast !

I'm currently forced to use a yoke for helo flying, and it's not ideal (at all) but it can be done.

What does it take to get the License code for the Hype Group products? I bought the 145 at release, but I don't remember how the License key for it was received. I have the order receipt email from them but that didn't have the license listed .  What's the deal?

I found the resend activation key, in the app but they keep sending me the key for the 145 that I bought at it's release. Both 145 and 160 products are listed under my account.

If you head to: https://www.hypeperformancegroup.com/ and click on "Resend Activation Key" at the top then that should help.

thanks for the tip, but they sent the one from the 145, maybe I have to wait a day or so for todays purchase of the 160 actually registers somehow. I would have thought once they sent the order conformation that the 160 would have been added to the sendowl thingy

For the H160 I got two emails, order confirmed and then an order email with the download link which also contained the serial key. If you don’t have that one yet I would probably reach out on their discord or something

 I finally got the second email with download and Key. I did find a way to contact them and did, but I think the system just took a while to throw out the "desired" email. All's well now.

I've done a few liveries for this thing so far (found at the usual place).  The product itself is simply excellent.  My favorite helicopter in any sim, to date.

Helicopters certainly have come a long way in MSFS... this one definitely looks to be a stellar example, and lots more 3rd party ones in the pipeline in what is turning out to be a thriving ecosystem similar to the regular aircraft market for the sim (follow helisimmer.com for all the news/updates).

What do you think about the flight model of this Aircraft, I can fly very well and smooth and precise both helicopters of MSFS without any assistance on, though this helicopter without auto trim etc. is totally unflyable, for my totally unrealistic, even like for me, maybe with unnatural robotic movements or so?, a pity.
