    Helicopters airfiles...

    I'm experiencing a lot with helicopters airfiles after I uploaded a Mil Mi-26, opened it and discovered that I was flying a Bell 206...

    Now, I'm flying a 45,000 lb pounds equipment, with an eight blade rotor and two 7,000 SHP engines that behaves like a real heavy bird. The only problem, common to all MS helicopters, is how to land it. It refuses to stop!

    At least FSX choppers are a lot easier to fly than FS9 ones! Landing.... ya have to start pitching back, seemingly a lot to slow. As you slow you reduce the back pitch to arrive near the landing spot just above and near zero speed. Reducing the cyclic lowers you out of the hover to the ground.

    It takes about 3-4 hours for the "lightbulb" to come on.

    I tested all limits for CFS2...

    The great problem is Throttle management. Some limits:

    Rotor propeller: eight
    Max power (600 parameter): 4000hp
    Blade lenght: 26ft
    Blade chord: 3.6ft
    Rotor Circle Surface Area: 4004

    I adjusted the aircraft.cfg:

    [WEIGHT_AND_BALANCE]
    empty_weight=40000 // (pounds)
    reference_datum_position=0.0, 0.0, 0.0 // (feet) distance from FlightSim Reference position: (1/4 chord, centerline, waterline)
    empty_weight_CG_position=0.0, 0.0, 0.0 // (feet) longitudinal, lateral, vertical distance from specified datum
    max_number_of_stations=50
    station_load.0=0.00, 0.00, 0.00, 0.000000
    station_load.1=0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 //Co-Pilot Weight (lbs), longitudinal, lateral, vertical positions from datum (feet)
    ;Moments of Inertia
    empty_weight_roll_MOI=130000.000000
    empty_weight_pitch_MOI=110000.000000
    empty_weight_yaw_MOI=180000.000000
    empty_weight_coupled_MOI=68000.000000
