The best feature for me are usable side-mounted guns. Another cool thing is, that you can manage maintenance, weight and balance, doors and accessories and do the checklists as well.

  • We created a “copilot” module that will allow you to hand over control and forget about  flying so you can move to the back, enjoy the view, the sound or even use the side mounted guns.

Weight and balance:

  • A graphic interface gives you the chance to modify the cargo, passengers, fuel and CG, handling of the helicopter will change depending on the CG lateral and longitudinal position.

Doors and accessories:

  • Guns, no guns, doors opened or closed, wire cutter or not…..customize it as you want.
