Unfortunately now I'm finding myself flying DCS huey more than Aeroflys R22 because the new flight model is just not as enjoyable as the previous one.
Exactly me the same. I'm missing the previous version of the R22's Expert Mode a lot !!! ; it felt so real, just right.
Before its changes the AFS2 Robinson was one of my favourite helicopters to fly in sim. For now (changed Expert Mode) it has become only my third choice, and I prefer other sims to fly helicopters again - like the time before IPACS published the R22.
"... this model requires almost zero left pedal and zero stabelization, you can just pop in to the air without hardly any correction. the previous model was spot on in this regard.
how real pilots are saying that it is more accurate now is beyond me!
Maybe there is still an undetected bug below the surface which has prevented a correct update of the R22's Expert Mode among various users of AFS2. Which could have led to different results in how the updated Robinson behaves during Expert Mode.
This would explain why some users call the changes "slight" and others - like me - "serious", regarding this " issue of stabilization ", especially during take off/landing.
And yes, I know how to activate the Expert Mode; and I still know when it's in ON/OFF position, have checked in hundred times.
