Faux helo trim

Recommended Posts

Well, we all know that MS chose not to model a trim function on choppers.So I have thinking of how to add a "faux trim". Essentially, what I am thinking of is adding fuel tanks located at the extremes of fore/aft-port/starboard and pumping fuel to a specific tank to add weight to that area and thus cause the chopper to tilt and stay tilted in that direction.Questions:Is this feasible?If Q1 is yes, how?Steve

Steve,The answer to your question is Yes and the how is FSUIPC.A similar question was raised here:http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...id=15655&page=2with my response in the message that followed.I would define four payload stations, as you described, along with a gauge to transfer weight from one station to another. I have a couple of projects on the go right now but will put it on my 'to do' list.Doug Dawson

Steve,It might be possible with FDSConnection.dll, but that is not a module I've done anything with. Problem is, there are no KEY_EVENTS that affect either fuel tanks or station loads. Some other way of manipulating them must be found.Doug
