How stiff is a huey cyclic?

I flew a simulator once (in the Army). And it was not stiff at all. Another pilot (IRL) mentioned that you can fly it using a few fingers. So I'm guessing the simulator was true to life.

Unlike larger helicopters like the -60 or -47 the UH-1H can be completely controlled with the hydraulics off/failed.


Physically it's hard work and much easier in forward flight, but during maintenance flights the aircraft had to maintain a relatively stable hover with the hydraulics off to be considered serviceable.
