(solved for the OP) "The hand that feeds" Stuck
I'm stuck in this mission. I can't lift the 2nd containers without damage it..
exactly the same problem.
i too am stuck, i have tryed to get second container from all angles and nothig. damage and start again! (patch required i think)

You should be able to clear the container by using maximum collective and first going straight up. Don't attach the load and immediately try to fly away. Once you've gained some altitude (and this may be slow), you can start to speed up and fly to the drop-off. Use auto-hover if keeping the bird steady while struggling with the load is a bit too much.
THX for a responce DNA, but as im sure i put in my original post, i have tryed many time and from many angles!
its a bug to be fixed please.
1. as soon as it goes 100% complete the container JUMPS! about 1ft into the air and hitting the container behind. This then counts as damage and fails the mission
2. instead of just posting, could you please check, 3 of us have same problem and your responce is the first thing we all did anyway
Okay, i managed to do it! what i did was I started the whole mission from the heliport, then when i got to the 2nd container part, i put the direction of the helicopter away from the jumping container, with the tail above it. Plus i was extremly low this time, as soon as it was attatched, the container only moved a little, but not enough to damgaed it. Finally! i can get on with this wonderful game!
Any chance of using spoiler tags please DnA?
i tryed that
i have tryed that, so i was the full lengh to stop the bounce. You must have just been lucky.
is hsould not be so hard to pick up a container. either move the one at the back or up the damage allowed on the one we need to pick up! at least 6 people on forums so far stuck
I fly real RC helicopters even doing stunts with them now... So I try to use what I know there to apply here...
I finished this mission. It is tough to get it moving. I don't think the mission is bugged. You are not supposed to lift it straight up in a hover. It is too heavy and that is what Tom is complaining about.
To get it moving you need to drag the container to the edge of the cargo ship. Then back up and drop into a low hover over the other containers so that the container you are attached to is in front of you and facing out to sea. Then apply full collective and forward cyclic. As the container is jerked up and over the side of the cargo ship, you will have a little more altitude then as you gain speed (which is what you're most after here) you gain more when you get out of your vortex ring.
Climbing is slow and turns should be made with no more than 20 degree banks (if you have plenty of speed).
I will tell you. On expert, you won't get another save until the mission is done. So your landing best be good or you'll damage the cargo (and on desired location). I came in high and then when in hover used full up collective and let it sink (it cannot maintain altitude in a hover with that much weight). Oh yea, there is one more save after you get it set on the ground correctly. But you have one more incident to get over.
Is it normal that the aimed container isn't the top one? I mean the red or blue one.
And yes, even if you can get it it's bugged.. The "ground effect" is fail on the cargo.. it's never the same cause some cargo are "not solide". So it's really hard to keep a nice hover with this.
Check on this video I just recorded. See my altitude an my Collective control. I LOVE hard thing but here.. If it's not bugger. It's a bit hard
