Thumbs up

Great Program Thanks!

I had to flip the metal tab to get rid of the ratchet on the throttle so that I could hover.
Works much better.

I have noticed that the rotor doesn't seem to move until the heli comes off the ground.

Wish list:
Auto reset or maybe when throttle goes to zero after crash.
Or something like min. max. min on throttle. JR 400 doesn't have any usable switches.

Black background behind display controls, or some way to make them easier to see.

I have set the reset to be the throttle and it works, but is kind of strange.
I am using JR 400 buddy box to fly with and a Hitec USB adaptor.
Also works with my DX6.
I like the USB over SmartPropoPlus, but both work almost the same.

Thanks again!
Jerry

You could try this, make sure USB is connected first:
"control panel" -> "Game Controllers" ->
"Click Advanced button" -> "Select Preferred device" ->
"OK" -> "OK"

This has fixed some issues I have seen.

Default Great stuff.

Hi Mark,

For Helis.... FMS does not cut it anymore. I have bought a USB controler on Ebay for 5$. It took me (remember I am a newbe) about 5 min to work all the config out. and now use my old JR XF622 to control my helisim and can fly at lunch time everyday (I live in Quebec... it was -42 with wind factor today )

Like the other, I have some comments.:

1. GREAT... I mean GREAT software. Unbelivable that this holds in less than 2 megs.
2. The physics is as good as commercial I have seen and even better than some...
3. I can practice nose-in tail-in all that great stuff a newbe needs.
4. Being able to add/change: sceneries, Model would be welcome.
5. Sound.... (I know your are working on it Mark )

long live Mark

Keep up the good work.

Default Connecting DX7 to PC

I have search this thread high and low about a cable to connect my DX7 to my PC and cannot find any information. Is this a cable that has to be purchased from JR(Spektrum)? Can we make one (have lots of spare USB cables and 1/8 jacks)?

Is there a driver that needs to be installed too?

I have not used a SIM with my DX7 so this is all new to me.

Thanks!

Roll Cyclic

Pitch cyclic

Hi Jedric,

Take 5 min to trial and error and you will find the right combination.

I have reset every thing back to default settings and do not have any negative pitch can someone please help me out. I have never had a problem until just recently and haven't changed anything in the settings.

Thanks,
Jim

Hi Mark

I am another guy that congratulates your work. I mean this Sim is excellent, now I started training my 5 years old son with the tremendous Training modes (lock xyz, lock yx), my kid is actually learning !!!, I am switching from mode 1 to mode 2 and I been learning new manouvers in this mode such as fast backwars, inverted transit (bacwards-forwards) with easy. So the moves become more automatic now for me.

I am sure you will be adding more and more feaures, just keep up the good work !!!!.

Congratulations.

Juan Carlos

hi Jim,

If you have put every default, make sure you also check the box use sim trottle/pitch curve on the controler maping windows it's easiser that way since you dont have to fiddle with the one on your radio. Also, to be on the safe side, create a clean model for the sim on your radio with no mixing.

wow this is a tight program! unbelievable! crazy awesome programming, considering the size!

i notice it uses ALOT of my E6600 dual cores though, 'specially after a crash! usage will spike to 85-90% and my temps jump up to 55+c across the cores, which is very odd!

I hope it offers new fliers a simulator that will provide good training, and save them a bundle of money compared to the commercial sims(to be spent on batteries or parts, obviously).

If you already have a commercial sim, you have less motivation to get it. But you may still want to so everyone has a common simulator. It can then be used to exchange flight recordings! One thing it offers that I hope will be useful for learning new maneuvers, is a visual indication of stick positions during record/playback. So you can watch what the heli is doing, and simultaneously see the stick positions that caused it!

Anyway, its available for download now.

http://www.marksfiles.net/HeliSim/index.htm

This simulator is in basically final form, but if there is consensus among experts that something needs to be tweaked to achieve more realismů I am open to feedback, and will do my best to improve it.

I hope you enjoy it!
Can you or anyone ealse help me get this working right?I have it working right some what but when I move the left stick up the right one moves up and to the left a little with it.How or what do i need to do to fix this.If anyone has the dx6i please let me know how you have everything set up.

Maybe I'm just a newbie but I can't the the heli to hover, I always seem to be chasing the heli around either I kept being dragged forward, backward, leftside or rightside? I have calibrated the my DX7 a lots times even did the trimming but once the heli gets in the air, I cant get it to stay in one spot.

Any tips????
