    Dear all,
    Hi just one last question:
    It was said QUOTE This is part of the Career mode, at the heliport between the contracts. When you are at your heliport, you can find the mechanic by the large hangar doors.UNQUOTE.
    I do find the mechanic there (see thread) but I cannot interact with him about maintenance. Whenever I click on him, it says Free Flight and then I will be off on a Mission.
    Is there something I am missing about interaction with the mechanic?
    Regards Karl

    I think I mixed up the action on the mechanic (Free Flight contract) and the ones available at the work benches inside. Those benches should open the correct menu.

    Thanks. The helicopter/maintenance menu will be opened, when you interact with equipment in the hangar.
    No more secrets, I believe.
    Cheers Karl

    Dear expert,
    another mistery came up while I proceed through the missions. Although I got shot dead in Afghanistan many times, I am still able to write this mail.
    But getting shot dead is not the problem, that is a practice issue.

    My problem is maintenance related again:
    I walk into the hangar, find the light helo and start getting the green eyes together, inspecting kind of, but it is really good fun, I recommend to all sim pilots to do this, beats everything that you may have seen on A2A FSX add-on planes, TOH IS INTERACTIVE. Ok that is not the problem.

    The problem is that I get tick marks galore, things that are not shown in the training like transmisson or the engine (after I open the engine doors, great).
    But one issue always remains and it costs me 108 bucks every time and I do not find a green eye for it. I can only repair by paying that through the maintenance menue, I do not find a missing green eye.

    Do you have a list of all inspect points?
    This also goes for the heavy copter, there also things I can absolutely not find green eyes for and which have to be paid.

    OK? List please?
    Keep up the good work, while I practice sling loads, no autohover.
    Please, list of inspection point (with locations if humanly possible)

    Cheers Karl

    Hi Karl,

    did you try to get in the chopper and turn the battery on?
    Weak battery is also one of the items that need to be checked.

    Also check if the flight controls can move freely be moving the stick and pedals to full deflection.

    Regards,
    Sylvain

    Hi Sylvain,
    yes that did it. Entering and switching battery on and off was one hidden item.
    I noted that that entering the chopper on the non-pilot side takes care of hydraulics. That is another hidden one.
    I will think about the flight controls too.
    Now I seem to have found all repair points.
    Thanks, Karl
