can not lift up Aluette II  Topic is solved

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

can not lift up Aluette II

Postby miroi » Thu Aug 15, 2019 6:30 pm

Hello,

within FG 3.2 I downloaded Aluette II helicopter.

However, I can not lift the helicopter up - it is remaining un the ground, it reacts only to rudder (pedals). If I pull the controller, does not lift up... What I am doing wrong please ?

---

Upon comparing with Aluette III I have an impression that there could be a brake inn Aluette II which I can not somehow release....

Did you pull the collective, that is using the same command for throttle but in the opposite direction? You can use PgDn to lower collective - it will then allow the aircraft to gain altitude.

There are different versions of it available. One better than the other.
The current good one is from here:-
