$200,000 Helicopter flight simulator. I want one of these too.


#42

So much fun, so expensive :smiley:


#43

I’ll have to visit that company’s web site sometime and check out the other sims they’ve put together for the fixed wing clients.


#44

Very cool video of helicopter combat mission in 360 degree viewpoint. You can go to full screen, put your cursor on the video and look around.


#45

I could watch this all day:


#46

I maintain the MH-60S would make an awesome DCS module


#47

That was damn cool!

@near_blind Yep, really hoping someday that module will be in our module manager.


#48

In case you were unaware what else the MH-60S does, besides vertrep:


CSAR with 7.62mm, .50 cal, Hellfire, Mk54 torpedoes, FLIR, moar cameras, minesweeping with lasers and a 30mm cannon …
Quite an impressive list indeed, @near_blind. (Did I forget anything?)


#49

ESSL wings and a 20mm Gatling gun


#50

One of the classics.


#51

Tomoyasu Hotei, Battle without Honour or Humility :wink: Recently learned that riff on the guitar.


#52

#53

That is one big bird.


#54

:wink:


#55

The Mi-26 defy’s all logic, it’s bigger then the first generation of 737 airliners!


#56

Man…turn up the speakers and listen to that thing THUMP…! Wow…


#57

Yeah the sound of those engines and rotors was astounding. I also was in awe of when the Mi-26 began lifting the Chinook and if you look closely at the rotors of the Mi-26 they are definitely bending upwards significantly.


#58

It didn’t look strained at all, amazing amount of power and damn the size. You think its way closer then it actually is.


#59

How about lifting something a little bigger then a Ch-47 :wink:

Little first person action:


#60

What a nightmare … ZERO visibility for the pilot of a Robinson R44 (?) helicopter flying the bride in to surprise the groom at the reception in Sao Paulo Brazil …

MOD EDIT: I do not think that this is in the spirit of the thread as people die in this video and there is nothing to be learned (pilot error::flying into conditions that they are not ready/trained for) and nothing showcasing helicopters, but to avoid being a censor, I am just going to wrap this in a spoiler tag. If anyone has a problem with this action, please let me know in a PM and we can discuss it. -Fridge-

Tragic beyond words! How does IFR flying in helicopters even work?
