Mil Mi-8

4,560 DFA007  1.6 years ago

MY BIGGEST PROJECT EVER

Also the last one before school

Problem fixed:

  • Fans not working, weird behaviors 9/2/2022
  • Codes fixed: 9/3/2022

    • Generators: now you have to start the engines up and set throttle >= 70% to activate it, or else it'll fail; Now turning generators off wont affect the engines input, makes more sense

    • Throttle: Makes rotor spin without starting engines up, no more now

    • Engine stop lever: same problem as throttle

If you find another bugs or things that dont make sense, please tell me to fix it, sorry for the inconvenience

ABOUT THE HELICOPTER

The Mil Mi-8 is a medium twin-turbine helicopter, originally designed by the Soviet Union in the 1960s and introduced into the Soviet Air Force in 1968. It is now produced by Russia. In addition to its most common role as a transport helicopter, the Mi-8 is also used as an airborne command post, armed gunship, and reconnaissance platform. The Mi-8 is among the world's most-produced helicopters, used by over 50 countries. As of 2015, when combined the two helicopters are the third most common operational military aircraft in the world.

    Ok a VR tester and I can say, this is VERY VR capable, and I love it. Also, idk if they had such things in the decade this was made in, but can a cruise control be added?

    @GabrielFangster70 well actually some other helicopters are pretty easy to fly without the gyroscope,

    It’s about time someone makes a fixed version of this

    Actually to be honest with you there’s helicopters pretty hard to fly without the gyroscope and the gyroscope is supposed to make the helicopter easier to fly you know
