Nice try, but the OH-58D is not just a 206 with 4 blades. The Upper cowling of the fuselage is completely different and the main rotor shaft is shorter

Yes, you're right but this is a first release of it. There is coming a improved version next year probably.

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Hi, I was just trying out the OH-58. When I added 50% collective, the Kiowa started to takeoff. However, when I added full collective, it started to descend. Did I miss out anything?

Jamming the power open may cause the blades to stall = loosing power.
Its most happy and able to achieve its optimum performance at 2/3 power.
