I love rotary wing and have been flying Black Shark since day 01. I got a few hundred hours in the Shark and I simply love it.
When I heard ToH had a demo version released I downloaded it immediately because I've been thinking of buying this game for a long time.
I own an X52 PRO, a set of Saitek Pro Pedals and TrackIR 5 bundled with Track Clip Pro. My system is an i5 2500k @ 4,6GHz, 8GB Ram and a GTX 580.
I wasn't expecting performance problems and these were definitely not the issue at hand.
My disappointment came from the helicopter handling implemented in the game. I have been flying it for the last 4 or 5 hours and I have been having a terrible time while trying to trim the helo and maintain a nice and stable flight.
The handling is extremely twitchy for me and it seems that the more I trim the worse it gets.
While flying Black Shark, if the aircraft is properly trimmed, you can even disable the Auto Pilot channels or even Flight Director and you'll still maintain a nice and stable flight. In Take on Helicopters, the aircraft wants to go everywhere and trimming seems to be a herculean task.
So, is there any configuration options that I am missing here? I've kept it default in terms of joystick response curves, the same way I have Armed Assault set up.
I'd very much like to purchase the game, but this demo was a major let down compared to what I was expecting.
Thanks for any help.
