Local Legends Bell 47J Ranger

Recommended Posts

Something like a CV-440 would be amazing.

Not a local legend, but the Blackbox Shorts 330/360 comes with freighter versions that are still active in the Caribbean FYI.  It’s a well done aircraft.

Sorry for the dumb question, but so far in the few videos I've seen, everybody started the helicopter with CTRL+E, which led the rotor to spin immediately.

The only counter example I've seen was AvAngel, which effectivement started using the buttons in the cockpit. However, even in her case, the rotor started spinning immediately. Aren't the piston engine helicopters supposed to have a clutch, which should be engaged before start ?

Appart from this, and without judging the flight model (I haven't tried it), the 3D model of this helicopter seems of very high quality ! I just really don't like the cockpit with that off-center panel and "empty" view in front, so I don't plan on buying it.

Looks like a cool, light addon, meant for players not looking after sophistication and precise systems simulation...

Honestly not for me ... I'm tired of toy simulation....

Yes, as you say, it probably wouldn't suit you.  I know you would just install it then uninstall it straight away!  :laugh:

Call me Bob or Rob, I don't mind, but I prefer Rob.

I like to trick airline passengers into thinking I have my own swimming pool in my back yard by painting a large blue rectangle on my patio.

Just as I actually did with all of the helis in MFS, default or purchased, simply a no-go for me yet...

To each, his own.   I have always found that helis were the poor cousins of the FS franchise. I see a real improvement with MSFS. For the first time, when I am in my Cabri I understand what flying a heli is all about (including how to hover 😋). It is far from perfect sure enough but they are moving in the right direction.

But there's surely a lot more coming regarding rotary wing for SU15:

I'm really enjoying this helicopter. Yes, the flight dynamics are simplified. But the sound and visuals make up for it. For $10 it is certainly a very good add-on.

And I just finished two liveries for it. Including the first helicopter ever to transport a U.S. President.

Agreed, for what it is (and what it costs) it’s fun, and having a helicopter with floats is nice.

The FlyInside 47 has had workings floats for AGES  And the next update of the 206 includes floats as well
