Fs2002-Helicopter (Bell) control

Hi fellow simers;
My Son gave me FS2002 last Christmas. And Flight Deck 3. I really like it but I can't keep the Bell chopper controled. I use the numbpad 0 and enter but within minutes, it's out of control. Same with the Extra 300. I can't even take off straight down the runway. It seems like 0 and enter just lags behind the plane's actual motions. Would anyone give me the answers? I can't be the only one having these problems. Embarassed

No your not alone. I don't have 2002, I use 2004 but helicopters are very hard to handle, when you do learn they're just like any other craft.
If the "Extra" is anything like the one that I have they take a delicate hand, they are an aerobatics aircraft after all and have to respond immediately.

Here is a site for helicopters, I believe that they still have free lessons, you should take the lessons that are in 2002 (if they have any).

You didn't mention having a joystick, that would be a huge help.
Good luck and let us know how your doing.

Even on FS98. But on that, you can't even shut off the engine. THey say it is a "saftey precaution" 😂 When you are on the ground you keep spinning around. It's weird. 😳

Hi i have been for a ride in an Extra 300 by the RJF and it is nothing like the sim version at all. it is realy smooth and easy to fly (easer than my C150). I do feel that the taxing is very unrealstic, it needs to be damped alot in the sim you just cant taxi the thing anywhere!!! (no change in FS2004)

Hi flyer...I have a little more control on the ground by using the"center rudder " key. Might help you too. Happy landings...Joe Hawks.
