A tip for heli simmers

  • A trick I discovered by accident is to "unbalance" your PC controller slightly. In the controller settings - set up (I forget the correct term used) when it asks you to centre the controls, have them slightly off-centre. It makes the heli want to wander all the time and extra hard to control. Not knowing where the off-set is helps as well (happened to me with a new controller which I did not properly set up and I did not know the offset). Was impressed with the effect. Add some crosswind and you will struggle. I do not have Aerofly 2 yet. To get soon. Was waiting for the R22 release. If they/or someone adds blade slap it will be great.

    Sim: Aerofly FS1, reason: visual and crosswind modelling, but soon to upgrade to AFS2

    Aircraft: will be R22 I hope

    Controls: PDP XBOX ONE wired c/w vibration (simply the best value for money for full heli control) RC Mode 2. LY: throttle, RX: ailerons, RY: elevator, Bumpers: rudder. B7: wheel brakes. Realflight8 Interlink-X USB Win10 Controller Mode 2 when R22 becomes available. Please please! give us blade-slap.

  • Is this trick intended to make it more difficult to fly the R-22? I don't understand why one would wish to make the R-22 "extra hard to control".

  • I haven't got Aerofly fs2 yet, but in FSX (my R22 sim to date) the heli flight models are too stable for me. Each to his own I guess. If you find the flight model hard enough for you then good for you. Maybe I will like the model AFS2 have done as is? It was just a tip for those who want to make it harder.
