That's a jolly craft.

Here's a very detailed description of OH-6A (military version of 500C), maybe you'll find something helpful.

There should be well enough there even for a very detailed JSBSim FDM provided a helicopter developer would be interested. :)

Though making an FDM, like most art forms, is an acquired skill. Hint, hint, wink, wink. ;)

I think this is a great addition to the FG helicopter collection.

It's very responsive to the controls. I've managed one more take off than the number of landings, but thats good for the way I fly. I'll be trying to land it on top of a lighthouse next.

My compliments to the developers.

Cheers,

Vic

Thanks Vic.
Im not great at Helicopter FDM's but It currently a little fun helicopter that can do what its supposed to. Perhaps its a little too easy to fly right now and I forgot to try and limit its ability to loop and roll. I'll work on that when its time for its next update.
