Incredible FDM! I just love it ;)

It seems to be a bit weak, but I am not sure with this. Do you have more data than the one in the aircrane.xml? Data like max Alt with full load or something like this?

No, unfortunately not available. Indeed the original has a power of 7000kw but limited to 4200kw. No idea if the limitation can be cancelled during flight...

Hey HHS,

Have you tried to write directly to Erikson : http://www.ericksonaircrane.com/modelerzone.php

They will assist all persons who wish to make a Aircrane (scale model, virtual etc ...)

Best regards. Emmanuel

No- Because I see problems coming with. Regarding the model for MSFS I see that they want to have it as freeware- means it may not be sold! And we know all, that this is not compatible with our licence.... :( ( the same like with the Boeing models and jsbsim....)

Hi @all,

Maik could find some very interesting (missing) informations about some helis available or in work for FGFS.
So at least he was able to make the fdm of the Skycrane much more realistic! I had a testflight, and it seemed to me very plausible. It is sent to helijah, who hopefully will commit it soon.
