Should have picked a chopper with a proper. i.e. more realistic FDM for your project, the Alouette III one is terrible. I pulled 4 consecutive loops then barrel rolled continuously down the length of a runway in that, which is a series of manoeuvres the III just cant do in the real world.

Admittedly the thought of doing aerobatics with helicopters didn't occur to me at all. I doubt there's much data to be had outside the normal envelope, but inside the envelope the handling is, shall we say, plausible given other FG helicopters.

Since I lack any real-life helicopter experience, I can't really comment on details - except as I said earlier, I have no intention of working on the FDM, but I'll be happy to take merge requests from anyone who likes improving it.

the bot stuff is, AIUI, built into the Alouette... you'll need that craft to get the bot code... the bot, itself, is already available as a walker... again, IIUC... i don't think they're using two different models, one for walker and one for pilot model...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

Carrier landing challenge reloaded

The Captain of Nimitz wouldn't let me land on deck and under Deck it was full.
So I found myself an alternative.

I have a video of the landing but no youtube account :(

Hmmm, youtube demands SMS authentication and I am not going to give Google my mobile phone number.
Vimeo works with mail so I went for that 8)



The actual landing gets hot at around 5:20.
