Great job!

Have you considered using Git or Svn to manage your work?

Kind Regards,

Thanks! In fact the R44 is a very common training helicopter, it's very easy to fly.

I'm right now fighting with the manifold pressure gauge, i have done a very simple implementation with just responds to the throttle when the engine is on, but that is very unrealistic, the problem is that being a yasim implementation i "don't have a engine" to read the parameters from, so i will need to implement some realistic behavior of the engine myself on nasal, in the future will add mixture managament as well.

Reworking some of the interior textures, I'm very new to texturing and 3d modeling so it's taking some time...

That's N-SCOT livery repo for the R44 https://github.com/scotsg8r/Paintshop/tree/Robinson-R44 . There's also a better and detailed paintkit.
Awesome!
