  1. Would that possibly work with Track IR?
  2. I appreciate the reply. I frequent Hovercontrol, although mostly as a lurker. Aside from DCS, I had pretty much written off helo simulation until I re-discovered my Seahawk X. Now I'm practicing instrument flights around Southern Germany using Aerosoft's VFR Germany South, which is great btw. I actually found my house on there. Anyway, my real question is, can we map the current trim button on the AFCS panel in the Seahawk/Jayhawk to a joystick button. I would currently like to just be able to do that, as it would add a lot more functionality to the aircraft as it stands.
  3. I did a search for this, and found only one lone unanswered thread: http://www.forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?showtopic=36256&st=0&p=237032&hl=+trim%20+seahawk&fromsearch=1&#entry237032 I figured I would start my own. I would also like to know if it is possible to add the "Trim" button on the AFCS panel as a mappable button. In a real hawk (I fly Blackhawks, but the Seahawk is similiar enough in this regard), you have a cyclic trim release on the cyclic stick. If you press this button, it actually releases the trim while you move the controls to where you want them,

    Helgoland X

    Just wanted to comment on Helgoland X. I just flew the SAR mission. What a great time. It really puts your instrument skills to the test. Kudos to the Aerosoft team!
  5. Glad to hear it. It's actually very easy to install the hoist and sling on any helicopter. You just need to adjust the position values afterward to get everything lined up right. If you want to use the sling in a mission (say the Slingload Tutorial), first go to the 'Missions' section, check the box that allows changes to the mission (remember, no rewards if you make changes), then start the mission. Once the mission is started, us 'Alt' to change aircraft, then save the mission with the ';' key. Next, you have to exit flight simulator and go the 'Flight Simulator X Files' folder un
  6. Sweet, I really appreciate it. Not bad for a second post!
  7. Alright, if anyone's interested, has the Aerosoft Hawks package, and Acceleration, here's what you need to have added in your aircraft.cfg to have a working hoist and sling. [sling.0] hoist_extend_rate = 5 //Feet per second hoist_retract_rate = -5 //Feet per second position = 0.5, 4.5, 5.5 //Feet from datum max_stretch = 2.0 //Max stretch distance at ultimate load damping_ratio = 0.6 //0 for no damping to 1.0 for critically damped. rated_load = 600 //Characteristics tension of cable in pounds ulti
  8. I don't know if it's been covered before, but I was wondering if the hoist in the Hawks X package was going to be activated now that Acceleration is out. I looked through the manual and noticed a note that said it wasn't, although you could use the crewchief's hover control. That would be totally useful when attempting to pick up swimmers, and probably with slingloads as well. Has anyone already added the hoist and sling from the EH-101? If not, would it be easy? Will the animation match up with the current hoist? Thanks in advance.
