Dodosim Developer and Hovercontrol.com

#1
Greetings all!
I've been a long time developer/beta tester for all sorts of Flight Simulator related projects. From the old SubLogic days to today's Oculus VR enabled products and hardware adjuncts. I have recently joined a team to tweak the Helicopter flight dynamics model in a new simulator. As a very high time rotorcraft and fixed wing pilot who owns aircraft, I am in a unique position to get it right.

I'd used the resources of the forums at "hovercontrol.com" for a long while and was dismayed to see that it had been taken down. If anyone can put me into contact with the sysops of that site (Jordan Moore, Simon Robbins, Chris Gaeth, etc.) Really anyone that can assist me in getting the content and forums back online. I have multiple data center quality servers and connections that I would gladly donate. I have been up continuoisly since the late 80's so it's pretty stable! ;)

Some of the same folks worked on (still working?) the DODOSIM 206 prject. I really enjoy it's models and flight dynamics fixes for FSX and would like to discuss porting it or rolling it into the new sim.

Can anyone assist??

Thank you!

Hey Rick,

Have you tried posting this on the main chat room here? Arno might know who to get in contact with.

That was a great website. Sorry to hear its gone. :(

Chris Gaeth is on Facebook as well as a few others. Not sure about Jordan, Simon or Mark though

Please let me chime in here. I am looking for a painter who was also associated with Hovercontrol to the best of my knowledge. Brandon D. Henry. His mail address is no longer valid. He has painted Antti Pakkonens HH-65C Dolphin.

Has anybody any recent contact information?

To revive Hovercontrol is an idea I strongly support!

Moved to general chat now. I don't know the people mentioned personally, so can't help with that.

Hey Matt,
Thanks for dropping HC off at the vet mate, and holding it's hand as it went to sleep. I remember when Rwy12 was being ravaged by spammers and porno crap and I am glad the lights went out at HC before that happened.
It is what it is mate...good times....cheers!
All the best to Jordan, Chris, and all of the HC admins that kept it one of the most well organized and civilized forums around, and thanks to all of the freeware contributors like yourself, Peter and Tomas Nemeth, Zoltan Botky, Lt Finney, Capt. Kirk Sunley , George Arana, Rory Kelly, Alan and Keith Devins, and so many others for the amazing helicopter related freeware. And yes, thanks to the guys at Dodosim!
All of the best to all of Y'all! Well Done!

Cheers
Gman
