Bell UH-1 (Huey): 200K build!
Stable and easy to fly, land, shoot etc...

Quick Start:
- AG1 to start engines.
- Throttle for rotor pitch (up) ~ 55% will lift-off / hover.
- Standard flight controls (60% is good for low to ground manoeuvring).

- LandingGear to open doors.
- AG2 and VTOL up for forward thrust (up to 150 mph). You can set speed and then deactivate AG2.

Weapons: 30mm Autocannon
- Use in-game air to ground weapons system.
- Camera’s 1 and 2 for main guns. (Port side first 20 rounds, starboard next 20)
- VTOL and TRIM to aim the guns.

- Rockets for forward facing attack (use cockpit view).

=============================================

Notes:
- When cruising at speed, AG2 on, VTOL up and adjust rotor pitch (Throttle to climb, descend or to reman [steady = 50%]).
- She can take a fair bit of flack damage, be sure to use the Damage Visualiser after an engagement with the enemy.
- Gyro’s are located outside of the main body in order to allow them to be shot and therefore create a dramatic crash (hehehe).
- Shocks are installed on skids so one can drop onto a target location eg. hover at 10 to 20 feet and then hit AG1 or Brake to land/drop.
- Two gyros used, one gyro’s YAW setting set to Roll - this helps with better manoeuvring.

XML Notes:
- HEX colours used: (USA Standards) Light Green Camo; #3f3f25, #2f2f1c
- Main engines INPUT is “Activate1” which turns on the engine at top speed.
- Main engines are set to zero on deactivate. (deactivating will drop you out of the sky)
- Secondary engine is not set to zero on deactivate. (can match speed, deactivate, and then move to guns to shoot).
- Weapons “firingDelay” is set to 0.5
- Rear rotor RPM is set to 300 (rotor is only for show, it provides no thrust).
- Cockpit is 5 degrees downward.
- Rockets is 3 degrees downward.
- Most large parts massScale set to 0.01

    Can you speed up the rotors? They are going really slow and possibly add a tiny turbo prop with no thrust to add a more helicopter sound

    Amazing Huey! Easy to maneuver and use. Easy landings!
    200+ upvotes on your authenticity!
    Those sliding doors may be simple in structure, I am guessing, but they are wicked sweet. It was neat to see them slide open like a set of van doors.

    @Rodrigo110 Yes i know. My graphics card is even worse. It is AMD Radeon 8610G integrated graphics. Getting a pc with GTX 1060 graphics an intel i5 processor soon. I should be able to build and fly better planes then.

    Your Graphics Card is more important in gaming than your Processor @PickyPlanes

    really cool replica. Just a pity i cant fly it. My 2.1GHz AMD would explode :-( . I wish i could build stuff like this, rather than the stupid low detail things that my craptop limits me to,
