  1. Probably relatively easy given the above evidence and the fact the computers are doing most the work....unless you ask a helicopter pilot - then it is harder than performing a triple heart bypass, in the dark, with nothing but a spade and a half eaten carrot, whilst riding a rollercoaster, upside down, in space, without a space suit. (TLDR - generally pilots tend to greatly overexaggerate the difficulty of flying )
  2. IIRC - you can select the specific radio preset on the CNI page and press enter and it will display the associated frequency...prob not the specific way to do it, but it is possible to see what the preset freq actually is on the CNI page.
  3. Not that I have noticed - playing in VR so every ms counts.
  4. Yes sorted by distance wold be far more useful. One example I had lately was selecting a unit from the first few targets on the list, and the crosshairs jumping way out back of the targets to that unit that was several km's behind the other targets - which if I actually closed to engage would bring me to too close to the targets closest to me. By sorting by range I can select the actual closest threat that concerns me and that I am happy to close to within the other threats range - if that all makes sense.
  5. Or...you know. Get out a spanner and take them off.
  6. нет 6800XT here - individual blade wobble and epically bad tracking still very evident.
  7. I have had SSA stop working a few times recently while changing versions etc - but just hitting the Repair DCS Export button (or w/e it's called) always fixes it.
  8. Just forget about the trim button and use the trim hat and manually trim/offload control forces. As the Hind flies with a relatively neutral cyclic anyway there is not much trimming required for 'normal' flight. Is how you fly a MD500 and it works fine - just constant little stabs at the trim hat will give you nice hands-off control. Obviously larger trims required as you slow for landing etc, but you have plenty of time.
  9. Probably because they have given up trying to use the trim button like you do on any other DCS helicopter...I know that my issues with it have decreased commensurate with my reduction in use of the system lol. I believe it is a AP bug - pretty easy to just watch the pitch channel bar in the small AP window moving up and down all by itself while S&L, and if you cancel the pitch AP channel it immediately stops.
  10. Some ppl take flying pixel planes waaaay too serious
  11. Just the keybind decisions for this aircraft as a whole defy any sort of common sense.

  13. Yep it is a shame - but welcome to DCS really. This is how it has been , as you say, for years - with no sign of ever changing. That's why for every module I own I have a selection of mods in OvGME fixing the basic things ED can't be bothered fixing - mostly really basic LUA 1-line changes like the F-86 gun fix you mention. Is also why I won't be spending another cent on DCS for the foreseeable future either as I am tired of 'half-finished for years' modules. Which is a shame as I live on NZ and used to work at Ardmore airfield and been in the hangar where they restore the Mosquito, seen them fly many times and was keen to purchase, but guess I am just not seeing the point anymore of spending my limited sim time flying half-finished neglected modules. Also sick and tired of the DCS sniper-AI taking down a Hind (and other choppers) with a single 'golden BB' small arms fire. I swear the guy that programs the DCS AI must be a multiple gold medal winner in 'Blindfolded Skeet Shooting' to think you can plink a couple of snapshots of 7.62mm at a passing low-level helicopter doing 250kph and magically score a direct hit on the control system immediately rendering the machine uncontrollable (Looking at you UN Campaign remade for Hind Mission 2 I think it is)...... now I just select invulnerable in the options and enjoy the mission instead, and use 'Red Flag' techniques to know if I stuffed up and 'actually' died - or DCS magic AI at work again. Bit of a rant I know, but meh.
  14. Thanks for the rec, ordered. No intention of purchasing the Apache at all lol, but do enjoy a good operators account in a machine like this.
