Got this payware for X-Plane 10 and it was worth every penny. It's by DMO Flight Design and it packs 5 S-92 models and 22 liveries.
|Early morning at Wallops Fligh Facility (VA, USA).|
|The passenger cabin is fully detailed. Doors and rear hatch can be opened.|
|The 3D cockpit features many functional buttons including the ones using navigation, autopilot, comms and lighting. Unfortunately, the MFDs buttons are not implemented.|
|Flying over DE, in route towards a frigate in the Chesapeake Bay. The cruising speed of this rotary wing aircraft is 145 KIAS and it certainly gets bumpy above that speed. Note the rotor blades tilted upwards.|
|I never made peace with Sikorsky's tail rotors ... So angled to the left! This forces me to fly with a slight left bank. Oh well.|
|The approach to the frigate was tricky. I don't know the exact speed of the boat, but it certainly felt like above 12 knots.|
|The sunrise, the smell of sea and that CIWS pointing at me ... It doesn't get any better!|
On a serious note, so far the two rotary wing sims that do best are DCS Black Shark and X-Plane 9/10. I always felt a void for a single main rotor simulator, preferably around a military aircraft, and that's why I got this add-on.
I'm going to have a series of entries regarding helicopter flying. Already found in my flying a couple of bad piloting practices that I was not aware of.
