Re: Rescue/bail-out

The reason to simulate bailout is to train the reaction. When you need it, you don't want to think about it. It's the same reason your throttle Hold should be in the same spot on your sim transmitter and your IRL transmitter. Bailout is available on AccuRC and RealFlight (I programmed the one for Re...

Some more on the wishlist for Heli-X

Michael, Great job, new interface for 5.1 looks good. Couple of things to put in the pipe. 1) Find a way to support Phoenix interface. On HeliFreak I see a lot of people ask about this, if it was just supported, I'm sure you would get quite a few conversions. Realflight Interlink already works, woul...

Hover training circle size

I know rotation rate is on the list (from: "Hover training rotation rate" thread). Can we add configurable hover training circle size to the list. Default seems to be 10m radius (20m diameter). Can we have a slider, or entry box to change the radius within reasonable limits (anything from 10m -> 1m,...

Re: Stream or render to video.

Fraps would be good if I had Windows (it's also a commercial product). Heli-X uses OpenGL (which works a video overlay system). Most recording programs will not work with the overlays as they shim the window manager, not interrogate the graphic card. recordmydesktop.sourceforge.net - Will not work w...

Sound improvement suggestions.

Things I have noticed on sound. When sudden heavy blade loading (like in tail slide, or wall or rainbow), the blades cavitate in the air making a "blade fart". This sound is a different note to regular blade sounds. This loading sound could be added/computed as the head speed is being tracked (as we...

Stream or render to video.

I know this is a big ask. Would it be possible to implement a "stream to video", or even a non-real time "render recorded session to video". Even if you only support a single digital video format and a standard HD size/frame rate (1024x720 or 1920x1080 - 50 or 60 fps). Im sure there must be some lib...

Hover training rotation rate

I have found the rotation rate in hover training extreemely useful. This taught me all orientation correction (see: http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?p=5003370#post5003370 . The limit is only up to 6 rotations per minute (generally used 1). Would it be possible to have this limit increased to ...

Re: Just some ideas

Thank you for the response. The position of the pilot is the center of the world (x=0, z=0) and the center of the circle is the usual start position of the helicopter. You can change the heli start position in the xml file of the airport. I found where I could change this in editing the Airport. Tha...

Just some ideas

Just some requests for updated versions of Heli-X. I use hover training quite a bit (see Helifreak learning thread - http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=493289 ). Could you make the centre of the hover circle configurable within the environment (distance X, Y, Z from original location)? Quite ...
