Okay nice. If we're already in bugspotting :D the cabin floor just shows the seat texture, I guess this isn't as it should be...

Currently working on the harrier fleet, but I will keep a note of the bugs for the next round of chopper updates. I thought I had already removed thebo105 dependancy, or I removed it and forgot to update the archive.....

I've tried to fix the dependencies but now the tail rotor isn't working anymore, so I replaced AS350 and to be sure also bo105 with the ones from the internet (pulled form FGMEMBERS, as before), but it doesn't work either?? :oops: :o

I don't know :) but now it magically works again... (I deleted all .fgfs/aircraft-data/ files). The strange thing is that before, I had already deleted .fgfs/aircraft-data/AS350 and /bo105, but it didn't help.... The world is strange :D

Okay Stuart, here are the changed files. It's now completely independent of the ec130 and the bo105 :)

Hello

I more or less accidentally came across this wonderfully modelled AS350.
I think about remaking Nasal/Systems of it, so it will work like the EC130/H130 which is very close in behaviour and layout of instruments, and - functionally - far more advanced ;-)
If I manage to keep to this plan it will then end up as a variant of the ec130 in FG harbour (where it should be anyhow).

Experiences with current version:
After some hard testing I found several issues with the FDM, the most annoying one being the extreme fail balance of the tail rotor.
Well it took some long search and finally it seems I found the problem. The positive side of this is I learned a lot about Yasim I didn't know yet.

So the problem with the tail rotor I think is the - way too high - weightperblade which is set to 30 pounds. I don't know about the real thing but I would guess it should be
10 or less. I set it to 5 and voila I got a very well balanced tail rotor behaviour.

Hi.

I already am working on a much more advanced update for the AS350, including FDM retuning and systems upgrades.
