 Time to toughen up

The thought of wrestling an octopus, an analogy of flying a million helicopter parts in loose formation, brings even some hardened flight sim pilots to their knees. But, fear not, as the downloadable Pilot’s Notes for this Flight Adventure contains links to some very useful websites and tutorials that will help the novice rotary pilot come to grips with this totally absorbing way to fly. The accompanying screenshots have been taken in X-Plane 11 with the outstanding X-Trident AB412. This product includes all the various configurations used in this Flight Adventure, and more, as well as possessing some of the best helicopter flight dynamics available on any flight sim platform.
