“All research and successful drug policies show
that treatment should be increased
And law enforcement decreased while abolishing
mandatory minimum sentences.”

After many requests, I have finally built a heli in my own style! I hope you all like it. On a side note, I have a habit of quoting song lyrics on my build. This one is no exception, from a great song by SOAD, made in 2002. In fact, I actually have a tradition of posting SOAD lyrics! If you do not like this quote, then feel free to contact me via discord. My discord is spefyjerbf#8985 . The moderation team reserves the right to moderate their website, but I ask that they do so on a bipartisan basis. I, too, reserve the right to moderate my comments section as I see fit.

Controls

Pitch, roll, and yaw to move the helicopter
VTOL for collective (UNSTABLE WHEN FULLY UP)
Trim for gun elevation (All mounted guns!)

Activator 1: Enter ‘level flight mode’

The helicopter automatically corrects to keep you level
Note that the corrections aren’t very powerful. You will have to make some manual corrections!

Activator 2: Enter ‘heading hold mode’

The helicopter automatically corrects to, roughly, keep its current orientation
You will have to make an occasional roll correction

Activator 3: Enter ‘kill horizontal velocity mode’

The helicopter will attempt to zero its horizontal velocity
This mode works better at lower speeds

Activator 4: Enter ‘gunner mode’

Allows the side guns to be controlled with pitch and roll
Locks pitch and roll controls to the helicopter

Activator 8: De-activate IMPULSE DELTA missiles

Auto-targeting missiles scare/aggro neutral targets. De-activate group 8 to avoid accidental locks

Tips

You will have to make corrections in every flight mode. This helicopter has a force imbalance that cannot be precisely accounted for.

The helicopter is hard to control at full collective. Go easy on the collective when you can.

Aim guns by adjusting your yaw orientation, and your trim stick. The guns will adjust for roll/pitch orientation when possible.

NPAS Odyn is heavily armed to address any conflict it may encounter. All included weapons are novel coded systems that primarily focus on air-to-ground confrontation.

NPAS H-DEC
NPAS H-DEC is a High-Draw Energy Cannon (H-DEC) that fires a two-round burst. If the weapon does not cool down enough, it will only fire one shot.

To use the weapon, select NPAS H-DEC in your air-to-ground menu. Fire it like any cannon. Use trim to adjust the gun’s elevation.

NPAS L-YAR
NPAS L-YAR is a Low-Yield Alternating Repeater (LYAR) that fires a rapid succession of charged bolts. This weapon is mounted so it can be used by an on-board gunner.

To use the weapon, select NPAS L-YAR in your air-to-ground menu. Fire like any cannon. Use trim to adjust the gun’s elevation. Enter ‘gunner mode’, where you can move the turret with pitch and roll, by pressing Activator 4.

Ordicor
Ordicor is a laser weapon that must ‘warm up’ before it fires. A slight charging delay is rewarded with incredible destructive potential.

To use the weapon, press and hold your fireGuns button until the weapon fires.

IMPULSE DELTA
IMPULSE DELTA is the successor to the widely used IMPUSE PRIME missile system. IMPULSE DELTA releases burst-fire missile swarms that ignore enemy countermeasures.

To use the weapon, select it from any weapon menu. Establish a lock (the range is quite short), and fire. Pressing and holding your fireWeapons button will release three individual missiles.

1. General Design of NPAS Odyn

NPAS Odyn is a multirole military helicopter designed by New Portum’s Private Aerospace Sector (NPAS). The helicopter is remotely piloted, which allows its entire crew to be deployed in the field, while NPAS Odyn provides air support as needed. As a result, NPAS Odyn is a popular choice for quickly deploying personnel in rapidly-developing situations.

Perhaps the most notable characteristic of NPAS Odyn is its rotor configuration. The helicopter uses a single main rotor to generate lift, but it also lacks a tailrotor. On a standard helicopter, this configuration would be impossible, as a tailrotor is needed to counteract torque generated by the helicopter’s main rotor. NPAS Odyn, then, differs from traditional helicopter design by using a specially-designed Yaw-Axis Torque Generator to counteract rotor moments. The torque generator will be discussed in section 2.

    @Greggory005 Ty! I'd say that you should continue with your heli. Every build is unique and has its own value. Additionally, I think a heli of your style would be quite interesting to see ;)

    Damn.....
    I was working on a helicopter yesterday...now I don't whether I should continue or not
    You , Sadboye12, normalpioneer, Thomas and MIK are the best plane builders on the entire web
    And who I always look up to you guys (but ya'll also spoil my big dreams XD)

    Permission to use the first bit of the yaw code? It's stable and works nicely for 2d flight. Credit would of course be given!

    @spefyjerbf Ok thanks for the advice by the way how do you rank up If no one looks at your creations I mean I made a jet and choper but they both got 0 upvotes I want to know how to get to bronze cause It seems imposable to get upvotes with no one caring about people who aren't at least silver?

    @comradelmo64 Unfortunately there is not a one-size-fits-all way to master XML modding. If I had to give one piece of advice, it would be to develop your skills in math. Regardless of what kind of math you may be studying at the moment, it is important! Eventually, you will be able to use mathematics to do a huge variety of amazing things (including XML modding and Funky Trees).

    As for my name, it is a completely random string of letters.

    @spefyjerbf I know that I will probably never be as good as you I mean It seems like you are probably the most skilled with xml modding though i'm not as good do you have any tips for me to do better with it? (if you do just tell me all of them don't bother to learn what I know about it because I suck SO MUTCH at it)

    @Alpha6 No idea. The early days of my profile were quite disorganized. Feel free to take a look at my pre-1.7 fleet (in my bio) for some of the highlights though!

    @Alpha6 Not necessarily. The main difference between the two weapons is that the delta version is burst-fire.
