DCS UH-1H Huey - Landing, Almost the Way is Supposed to be Done

In my previous landing video of almost one year ago, I showed that I was able to land the Huey safely. My landing approach, though was too shallow. In this new video, I am trying to do it the way it is supposed to be: the slope should be 30 degrees or so. I don't think I have achieved the 30s but at least I am in the 20s or so.

The YouTube version is in high definition, just in case you want to check the airspeed and rate of descent gauges.

Surprisingly, a 1,000 ft/min descent rate didn't kill me and was easy to get out from. The most useful muscle memory from this training: collective up, cyclic forward at the same time.
