As many are new to correctly flying helicopters, here is a site that really helped me. Follow it as it reads and when comfortable make your setting changes. I really hope this helps as it did me. Beginner link os: www.avsim.com/pages/0604/heli/helitutorial.htm
I have only been flying for a week and a day. Here is what I have found thanks to many others. This link Ashley posted really helps: www.avsim.com/pages/0604/heli/helitutorial.htm As does this link from Hover Control: www.hovercontrol.com/docs/gettingstarted/doc_page24.shtml The key is to balance your system capabilities with your flight style. Very first thing is CALIBRATE FLIGHT CONTROLS! Even if you think they are calibrated! Set FPS-Frame rate at no higher than 30! It does make a difference as your PC is taking resources to run full blast when those resources need to be used to control the helicopter - I assume all aircraft. What I have found is depending on your system, if you use the settings in the first link to start do a test flight. The settings in the second link are hard. So what I did was start all at MEDIUM Test Fly and adjust each until you find the right comfort zone for you. Yes it takes a lot of test flight's. Bumped up GENERAL (under SETTINGS > REALISIM tab) by 5-7 clicks. CONTROLS > Joy-Stick Click I set Ailerons and elevator axis to about 50% Throttle 100% - All null zones to zero Display settings: (SCENERY)I put all at 50% to test.Hardware depends on your system. Mine was by default set at 800x600x32 You will be amazed at the performance improvement by changing from default setting to as I did to 1280x1024x32 Your system may be different but this works for me. Not one crash since I changed! The key is to experiment and adjust the settings that work for you and your system. I hope this helps.
