Certainly agree with everyone else, its certainly more stable, I still managed to get into ring vortex on landing, but that was because of my own silly fault.

 

The first 5 landings were great, i just got a bit cocky with the last landing. :)

 

look forward to trying it out properly tomorrow though, as only saw this just as i was packing up for the night.

 

Will be intresting to hear what our RL pilots in here think about the FM now.

Did I miss something? My autoupdater didn't do anything... ??

 

How many hours ago did this update take place?

 

EDIT:

 

Got it, but why launch the update before making an official announcement?

Can someone tell me how to update? Nothing in the dcs world news tab and nothing in module manager! Any help I'm new to dcs?

I just landed on top of one of those red/white towers that you can find around the apron on airports...

 

I could barely do that with the KA-50. I seriously have my doubts about this excessive stability. It flies like how I imagine game mode... Waiting for opinions of real helicopter pilots...

 

But if this FM is accurate I'm going to be very happy :thumbup:

The auto updater doesn't seem to do anything, it just gets stuck when I click it in the module manager. I ran it from the start menu and it downloaded and installed a couple of file, one about 1.6 Mb, the other about 68 Mb... but I'm not entirely sure it changed anything in the Huey FM... it still feels like before...

 

the error message I get when trying to launch the updater from in-game is "windows cannot find bin/dcs_updater.exe" etc...

 

the file is there but for some reason it doesn't want to open it... Do I need to reinstall??

 

- EDIT - yes it did update it, it is a tid bit more stable. Sure not the big improvement I expected but at least it is manageable now... Still my R22 is much more stable, seriously...

In my opinion it has been dumb'd down to much, feels like game mode to me.

Exactly!

 

I keep repeating myself... I'd like to hear some thrustworthy opinions soon...

 

But I do hope the FM is more accurate. Now I can do almost everything I want...

I think it's far less aerobatic now. I can tell a big difference, a lot with the vortex ring. :thumbup:

 

It is far less maneuverable but it seems like it's more accurate now. I don't expect that the Huey was as agile as before the FM tune. From what i've read from pilots it was far too responsive in the cyclic and I now know what they were talking about. It's different, will have to get used to it. Much more stable, especially in low speed and hover.

I'm no expert on choppers, but you can feel the machine better now. It is easier, but still demanding and less unpredictable. Everyone who had trouble earlier on should now be able to learn to fly no sweat.

 

I just hope they won't change it because someone says it's not that hard anymore. FM should be tweaked to reflect the real machine and harder does not always mean more realistic, so if that's what real pilots say it should be, they should be the authority on this.

After about an hour on the new FM I'm loving it! Managed to land on those boats, control tower, watch tower etc.. It's MUCH better at hovering. There's just enough fight in it to keep the challenge up.

 

Dare I say, perfect?... Belsimtek - please don't tweak anymore haha!!!! :smilewink:

Just a heads up to all the whiny comments that expect nothing else but pure perfection to the very core from the first day - It's still a beta :D

actually there was a thread that a rl pilot with 1250 hours in flight

mention that it was an error about the VRS

seems that you have more control over this machine and i'm pretty happy with it

 

and yes you can make aerobatics

just set curve at 0:D

left rudder during cruise

 

Seems to me that with the new FM you need significant left rudder at cruise conditions (before the rudder position was more or less in neutral). Anybody else notice that?

That's why I said less aerobatic. Overall it flys much better for most people. Aside from the VRS I didn't have any trouble flying the previous FM. I took a little high speed low level flight and just have to get used to the slower responses.
