This is a work in progress, crash helicopter to see effect.

Eventually there will be brush fires to drop water on and water sources to refill. Accurate helicopter flight feel.

Love the crash effect great stuff. Can't wait for full scene. :lol:
Wow! I can't believe how good this crash is. Fantastic helicopter, pretty good feel. I will have to have a good look at how you make this crash effect, and maybe use it in my future choppers. _o_

P.S. This helicopter is not really simulation aerodynamics, check out the chopper I just uploaded, it's 5 scenes to the right of this one :yum: it's a sim.

Almost forgot: 10/10! I want to see the final. 8|

Thanks guys!

@Dare, I wrote accurate flight feel not aerodynamics. I know actual helicopter flight feel from flying radio controlled helicopters since 1984 and I have literally hundreds of hours of flight time.

Oh sorry, I misinterpret :yum:

I fly RC helicopters too! Only since last year though, I'm currently flying a T-rex 450 with Spekky DX7 transmitter. Getting better :zzz:

Thanks for good rating and comment, I'm chatting to Nxdt right now over Xfire and we are talking about how good ur scenes are _o_ Nxdt and I are good friends, though we only met over Internet.
Hey cool will bill what sort of helis were you flying? I'm guessing they were gas powered? And do you still fly them. Btw i'm a bit of a beginner RC guy [un]like dare, except with a plane and not heli. :tup:

Ahem, I am not beginner :yum:

I fly for 1 year, I learnt quick and am getting into some 3D now.
Opps sorry, i guess i'm just the noob lol.

Edit; Sorry for Spamming in your comments Will bil. :blush:

I curently fly a Trex 450 xl and a Raptor 30, I fly inverted and some 3D. I fly every weekend. The thing I always brag about is that flying 8-10 flights every weekend I only crash about once or twice a year.

Google GMP Cricket, that was my first copter back in 1984. Its gas powered fixed pitched 4 channel with no auto rotation. It was about the size of a Trex 450 with a .28 engine(Huge engine for that small of a heli!). They were very hard to fly but to this day it is still my favorite RC heli!

I knew the Gorhams and Robert Gorham helped me learn how to fly and setup a helicopter.

Your not spamming Nxdt, we are talking
Very good! 10/10
And I forgot to mention, I flew my first 2 copters without a gyro. Gyros back then were a joke and had little effect.
Thank you Jrderksen
Wow thats really cool, and btw how can you manage to only crash 1-2 time a year thats amazing. Yeah i'd like to get a heli sometime in the future, not right now but when i have a job, finished school etc.
@Nxdt, I rarely crash because I stay way within my ablilities. But that makes me a very slow learner, I started in '84 but didnt start learning to fly inverted until about 1998, and didnt start other 3d until about 2006. Also maintenance, I almost never have had in flight failure, and only have had a forced autorotation 4 or 5 times since I started flying.
awww god I want a rc heli, nothing big but not so small, gotta just drive my nice 1/10 nitro car....
I see how it works now, you make crash effect occur based on how hard you crash the helicopter (hinge impulse break limit). Very clever! :y
Theres a transparent ring (green) with a (green) circle inside it just a little behind the main rotor mainshaft. When the circle touches the outer ring the crash event occurs by making a event. The deletes parts that hold things together and makes some parts transparent, and others become visible. There also is a circle without a ring on the front of the heli that if it touches anything it creates a crash also IIRC. (I dont recall for sure about the second circle because I started this scene a couple of months ago).

I have used this on 2 or three scenes so far, sometimes instead of a breakable hinge I use 3 springs to keep the circle centered in the ring.

I know I said I said I figured out how it works, you didn't have to explain. :yum:

Thanks anyway, good to have clarification.
Very cool as always Bill:tup: 10/10
I'm getting back into RC helis too, hovering a Novus 125 CP pretty well now LOL
Thank you Gent. Flying RC planes or helis is so much fun!
