Hey Tom, can you upload that here to the library? I'd really like to give it the once over. Does it have a VC too??!!With all the talented devs around here at Avsim, I'm sure they won't lack for talented candidates.

High praise indeed!! Does that mean I can now take my own photo with a uniform and Captain epaulettes? Please say yes so I can stand out from the crowd... :-lol

Well, the beacon flashes too fast, there's excessive smoke billowing from the exhaust, and the rotor movement isn't.... But other than that, it's a nice design.Regards,Jim Karn

Sorry, I don't do VC's. :)Besides, if you have seen the interior of a Vietnam era SH-3A through D, you wouldn't want a VC with that model. :)

:-lolYou forgot to mention the three missing rivets three inches from the hind post of the cockpit and the lack of flotation bags on the sponson. Amateur!

Yeah, I sure do.... I certainly would not buy that model - flashing lights, missing rivets, cockpit off by 3 inches, etc. etc. I can remember watching a video in helicopter flight crew school training where the camera was located at the same level as the rotor blades, and those suckers were doing at least what my model shows. There were a number in that class, including me, that questioned whether or not we really really wanted to ride in those things - lovingly referred to as "a million mis-matched parts flying in close formation". :)

Wow... BS in Computer Science?? LOLSome of us were doing this long before they taught it college. ;)

Surprising, those are pretty lax baseline requirements. There are droves of BSCS C++ coders looking for steady work. I'd hazard to guess that whoever they end up hiring will have 10+ years of relevant industry experience and maybe even an MS CS.

What kind of FR do you get with that model?Seriously though ... it looks surprisingly like the very early versions of the EH101. Keep working on it. You'd be amazed how they turn out.
