UH-60

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

UH-60

Hi,

is the UH-60 flyable? When trying to take off I slowly increase the collective and then the heli just tilt to the right that no steering can compensate this (even pushing my joystick to the maximum left doesn't help). Trying to increase the collective faster seems better and i managed to take off, but then i can't compensate the torque of the rotor with the ruder and the heli crashes after some uncontrolled meters of flying.
I managed to fly the UH-1, EC135 and some others well enough to manage landings on the helipad of oil-plattforms or even the helipads on the support ships of the vinson. But I can't handle the UH-60. Is the UH-60 just that hard to fly or is the problem that it is unfinished? (or maybe outdated? last changes seems to be more than a year ago)

Yep, the FDM is a disaster, and the model is essentially unflyable. Pick another aircraft and move on.

Sorry, at that time I could not reach it, maybe it was my connection. That is why I warned that I was linking from google and couldn't confirm it was working but was confident it would work soon.
