    Definitely going to try this - I've been away from the Legacy for way too long. Am trying to teach myself the NGX at the moment but I think I'll interrupt the training program for a day or so... :cool:

    Well, speaking just as a grateful end user, I'd be happy to pay the equivalent of what a premium payware a/c would cost me, and let the team direct the funds however they see fit. Donation or contribution, either is fine. But I'm going to feel really guilty paying nothing at all and just accepting it as a gift...

    Started on MSFS for Apple Macintosh when it came out in the spring of 1986. So KOAK is my Meigs. Really need to visit there... and Meigs too, where I started a lot of flights to Kankakee and Champaign-Urbana thanks to Charlie Gulick's 40 Great Flight Simulator Adventures. We've progressed by leaps and bounds but somehow I wonder if anything will ever seem as magical as learning IFR on a whited-out monochrome Mac screen...

    I can't speak to the Pyro since I don't fly it, but in general, all helos are like that - except, maybe, for a few of the bigger, more modern ones that have some form of stability assist. Those are the exception, not the rule. Helos are inherently unstable and the pilot's job is to balance all the forces, and the way they change in different phases of flight. Feels like balancing a plate on a stick. It's not everybody's cup of tea. I spent a year flying almost nothing else in FSX and X-Plane and learned a lot, and became a better pilot, but eventually moved on to other things. If you want to get a good overview of helo flying, Hovercontrol is a great site - well worth a look. Hope this helps. </end>
