Add empty sling while sling loading

Hi,

 

Just started to enjoy sling loading with the helos.

There is one thing missing though.

Doing sling loading IRL it's not only crucial to be aware of the line while having a load attached to it, but very important to have it in mind while empty.

Many accidents occur due to the pilot "forget" the line or how it behaves differently when having it unloaded.

Also, when closing in to the load to be picked up from the ground, before it's hooked, the hook itself is an important cue for the pilot.

 

So my requests is thus:

Make the sling and hook (with mass) present between a deliberate activation of it by the pilot, until a deliberate inactivation. Independent of the presence of a load.

I will reveal the secret: we are working on this:). I do not know if we can do this at the proper level of quality, but we have the thoughts..

Excellent!

It has to start somewhere

Looking forward to whatever you can come up with, whenever it will happen.
