EC130 B4 Throttle/Collective Keyboard Controlls.

Helicopter flying is completely different from flying a fixed-wing aircraft and thus requires different skills.

EC130 B4 Throttle/Collective Keyboard Controlls.

Hey,

Does anyone knows how the collective or throttle is controlled by keyboard controls in the Eurocopter EC130 B4 (from the FGaddon hanger). I have tried the usual keyboard buttons of 3 and 9 and they don't do anything.

Thanks,
Sam.

Try PgUp and PgDn - also notice that the throttle control is inverted; it starts at maximum, and you "throttle down" to increase collective.

Thanks for the reply, I found that PgUp and PgDn works fine for the throttle. Although its tricky for me to use those keys because you have got to apply rudder with the collective in a heli and im using keyboard/mouse controls. Do you know if I can re map the throttle controls to different keys on the keyboard or something?

Operate the rudder with the mouse - using keyboard for the task won't make you happy, but I can fly the EC-130 (or in fact pretty muc any helicopter) just fine with the mouse and only collective mapped to keys.
