    I've been hard at work over the last few months on a program that runs alongside FS, using FSUIPC to read and write variables, to augment the simplistic helicopter flight modeling in FS in order to create a more representative piloting experience.

    The program enables pilots to fine tune the augmented behaviours according to helicopter type and save them in an xml profile.

    Some of the things I've been able to add are Torque-induced Yaw, Loss of Tail Rotor Effectiveness, increased dynamic instability and additional helicopter specific failures.

    It can be downloaded from here and includes a large pdf English manual: http://www.mediafire.com/?9zjcu5zeenc

    Simply fantastic. This is the one thing I have been waiting years for and something I hope MS implement themselves soon enough. I couldn't find it in the PDF, but is there anything with Vortex Ring that can be implemented. I used to own the dodosim which had vortex ring implemented (of sorts). I think it worked with a trigger below 30kts, which actually became a nightmare because you could not recover by lowering collective and stick forward to gain airspeed and reduce pitch angle and you also couldn't descend at speeds less than 30kts at all (not even with less than 500 ft/pm RoD on, which is very unrealistic and ultimately put me off. thank you for your obvious hard work on this. At least this one person has a new lease on FSX!

    Trying to use helifoce . keep getting fail message "This application has failed to start because MSVCR71.dll was not found. Re installing the application may fix this problem. re installing no help. I can use fsx ,fs9 and x plane all work fine. Searched my computer and 11 items found for msvcr71.dll I know very little abount computers . My computer is not online and has only been online when it was built for me to use fsx and to install fs9. I am thinking some thing needs to be updated but I dont know. Would really like to check out heliforce but just can not get it to work. I have downloaded all that the manual says I need to use it but does not work Please help

    Can anyone confirm that this gets rid of the super annoying loss of control effectiveness at low collective settings in the NH-90?
