R22 collective configuration question and a development teaser

  • For those of us using simple twist grip joystick and throttle configurations, I was just wondering if the collective will be configured as reverse throttle (my preferred option), or at least if there is an option to set it up that way? Forgive my eagerness, once this thing comes out I'll be too impatient to go fumbling around in settings trying to figure it out for myself.

  • You will be able to assign the collective to your liking. There will be a separate helicopter category in the control settings to assign heli collective, cyclic, throttle and others.

    It's already there 👍

  • Hello !

    I am really impatient to be able to fly in helicopter with aerofly fs2.

    Have you a more precise idea of its release date ?

    Thank

    The aim is this fall. That's all we know 🙂

  • The R22 is in final testing so if (IF) everything we find gets worked out you may see it within the next couple of weeks. I'll try to capture a couple of screenshots and post them here shortly.

  • nice Jeff. If you stick those piccies in your latest news blog it will move the latest edit date forward quite a bit.

  • Great, thanks for your answers and your pictures drhotwing1, with R22 we are going to be able to discover the most detailed scenes another way (Fort Jeferson is a very good example)

    I read on HeliSimmer that you would propose two flight models for R22, one simplified and an other one more "simulation", It is always in project ?

    Yes there will be two modes. The R22 is already flying very nice, we just have a couple of small things to tune up. Marc and Jan are two of the main guys that have been working on this for a while, aiming towards perfection. Everyone is going to be very pleased when we release this. It's a joy to fly and yes it brings much detail to the forefront.

    Changed the title of the thread from “R22 collective configuration question” to “R22 collective configuration question and a development teaser”.
  • How about some liveries? Please note that the liveries may change before release so these are just tentative.
