AugustaWestland CH-149 Cormorant V.3

2,442 EGplanes  5 months ago

Yes, I made yet another…
Allow me to gladly present my next version of the CH-149 Cormorant. Featuring an interior and (mostly) working cockpit, this is my most detailed project yet.
INSTRUCTIONS:
Ag1 for main engine, activate with collective at 0%.
Ag2 is for the door.
Ag3 is for controls of the spotlight.
Ag4 is for the magnet.
Ag5 is for the auto-stabilization, useful for hovering.
Ag6 is for the spotlight.
Ag8 is for main rotor controls.
Throttle is for the collective.
VTOL is for the ramp.
Trim is for the winch/rope.

It sure isn’t perfect and the dimensions are off, it sure isn’t fully accurate, but I put many hours into this thing and had to get it recovered from corruption by an IT genius through valiant efforts after a very frustrating forced power down while the copter was loaded and SimplePlanes was running. I hope you all enjoy this, and possibly expect another version. Yes, I may have Cormorant Fever. I sincerely hope you all enjoy.

    @MegaFox Mine does have the tail blades, but some bubble windows are missing and the spotlight is nowhere to be found. I think two tail blades are gone too

    @MegaFox I have a model too which was very helpful when making this. It also is metal.

    @Jacklepyansky Yeah that happens with big loads, not much can be done about it.

    @metallicplanes Take it slow. Don’t want to go extreme when transporting things or people.

    @EGplanes It does that on pretty low throttle. On heli's I don't throttle over 30%. But this one won't take off unless you go 55-60%

    @metallicplanes That’s because your throttle is waaaay too high. Keep it quite low.

    @EGplanes Without you controlling it with auto stabilisation on, it flips you over

    @metallicplanes With auto-stabilisation enabled, that shouldn’t be a problem.

    @EGplanes You know disabling it will make you lose it's control

    @metallicplanes That’s why I made disabling the main rotor controls an option.

    The spotlight controls are useless cause they move the heli with it
