The Aerofly FS 2 R22 helicopter comes standard with two modes. You can fly with no assistance by clicking in the 'Expert' checkbox located at the bottom of the selection screen, or if you are new to flying helicopters you can leave the box unchecked. By doing so you will receive enough assistance to provide you with more stable flight control.
Unchecked box - Suitable more for novice helicopter pilots. This mode will provide you a more stable flight
Checked box - Suitable more for advanced pilots that want a more realistic flight experience. The use of rudder pedals or a rudder control is highly recommended to use this mode.
For the novice
Flying the R22 helicopter is fairly easy. If you are a novice, follow these basic steps to get off the ground and begin enjoying what it feels like to be a helicopter pilot.
Note: These instructions are based on the novice mode (expert box unchecked).
To get you up and flying, there are two basic controls that you need to learn; Collective and Cyclic.
Collective - Basically provides Altitude and lift.
Cyclic - Mostly provides attitude and pitch control
Using both of these controls together will get you up in the air and flying.
