I already know his opinion of OFP's flight model. "Arcade". ***We used to play OFP together alot. Every time he got in a helicopter in OFP he said it reminded him of those coin operated kiddie's rides outside supermarkets... cartoonesque helicopter with flashing lights etc.Originally Posted by (Radic @ Feb. 20 2007,21:39)
OFP's flight model wasn’t realistic. ***ArmA's engine while not fantastic is at least heading in the right direction…maybe with a few more tweaks he’ll say something good about it
Anyway…back to the reason I came back to this thread. ***Ive been playing with the mass distribution in the geo lod of several of my helicopters. ***Just as I though it has a huge difference to the way the models handle. ***So it may well be possible to correct the AH-1’s handling very easily. ***It’s just going to take some experimenting. ***If you dig out the RKSL thread you'll see a new vid of the RAH-66 ive been playing with.
By changing the mass and CofG of the model ive been able to get everything from a sluggish profile to a super agile one.
