External cargo

Hello, I have been trying to do some external cargo stuff following tutorials an manual and have a couple of problems.

 

1. External cargo camera will not activate. I have found that External Cargo Indicator is pretty similar and works, tho.

 

2. I read that landing close to the cargo you can hook it with the hook/unhook command. But not working either. The command works to release the cargo when in the air.

 

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Thank you!

Problems solved. :)

 

Yes I needed to land even closer for the hook/unhook. I seems quite less than the 5m stated in the manual. Around 2m I would say.

 

As for the cargo camera, looks like it needs the radioaltimeter on. I use to forget about it when starting the aircraft...

Does anyone know why you cannot bind the External Cargo Indicator to a joystick button? I find this indicator far more helpful than the camera as it doesn't mess up my visual cues of the horizon while I'm trying to maintain a stable hover.

 

Has/Can anyone from Belsimtek comment on this?
