I have studied and tried several YouTube videos about settings for the Honeycomb Alpha & Bravo controllers for helicopters.
When they were first available in MSFS2000 a couple of years ago, I could descend & land them fairly well. In the past year, however, something changed. I am aware that helicopters require delicate/gentle control inputs. But now when I am descending, the throttle/collective control becomes extremely sensitive. A tiny touch to lower or raise the aircraft causes an outsized result. It either shoots up fast or drops down very quickly. Even when I am almost on the ground, lowering the control the slightest bit causes it to hit the ground too hard, and causes damage. I am aware of the ground effect, but it is not causing my problem. Very frustrating.
Given the information you've provided, there are a few potential culprits that could be causing the sensitivity issues you're experiencing. I'm quite familiar with the Honeycomb Alpha & Bravo controllers, and your issue is not unique; several users have reported similar sensitivity challenges over time. Let's dive into some possible solutions.
While your problem is challenging, I hope these solutions help. If challenges persist, provide additional specifics about your setup, and I'll further assist.
P.S. Helicopters in flight simulators indeed demand delicate control. Make gradual, smooth inputs, especially during critical phases like landing. With the right settings and practice, you'll master rotary-wing flight in the sim.
