ENCORE!!! BRAVO!!! PRAVISIMO!!! Absolutely the best video I've seen of X-Plane flying skills in a helicopter EVER!!! This is the kind of art, I believe, Jason, the crew, and the rest of us want to see in this website. Standing ovation. (You also may want the shop to check those skids when your done...) ;)

Your fan,
Colonel Vladimier Kiofka

That was nuts! Love the bit where you charged the Fokker then spun around and lifted. Nicely shot video, smooth buttery fps. That was incredibe flying and shooting.

Wow again there Mr. Smoky. Quite a very svelte flight and demonstration. I do recommend ppl watch the HD version @ youtube site.

The big cheese pro pilots that use this at LFOM, Shands, ALNW, etc are never terribly verbose in their reports of handling other than pretty sterile and semi cryptically said things like that it flies exactly right, and no squawks, and stuff. So... I'd like to hear from "Smoky" some description on how you find the handling and feel of the 109, and 135. As all the real pilots say it's exactly like the real aircraft.. You might be able to translate it into more simmer friendly lingo.

Another excellent video Smoky. I think you demonstrate how we all wish we could fly heli's. with such mastery and control.


CX162 [VIDEO] Mettle or Scrap Alunimum

PostPosted: 08 Sep 2009 10:52

CX162A Skycatcher
"Highway Song" by Ravi & the Rexers (my friend was the drummer)

Basically.. along with a huge surprise coming for the 162, I took her up for a spin.... figuratively and literally. All the hyperbole and controversy over the 'spin' that the 162A somehow exibited... in the 931 flight model I wanted to see how the same airframe fared. We all know that x-plane doesn't really spin, no matter what AM just won't do a real one wing flying, one wing dying spin. It does get close with one-wing-drop stalls, but.. while it may not do it exactly, what it does do... is a reasonable analog for stability, aerodynamics, etc.

Now.. my 162 is made not from photos, but from actual [redacted] mfgr diagrams, calibrated to specified dimensions, etc etc yada yada. Being a newly unveiled concept aircraft, or pre-production post-concept aircraft, there's no TCDS on it for control deflections, cg limit, etc. So what information was not published in the [redacted] mfgr materials, I had to use my own methods for placing cg wisely, and control deflections (control sizes were depicted in the material).. well. just like my first shakedown flight with it.. was to demonstrate it's characteristics... so does "The Shakedown Part 2... Mettle or Aluminum"
