DCS: UH-1H Huey Range Day

Written by Phil on . Posted in DCS Huey


A wet early morning, perfect for a range day and some rocket firing at targets. It’s 06:00 and I get ready to start the Huey up.



It takes just a few minutes to get this legendary helicopter up and running. During start up I wait until the Gas Producer reaches 40% or 40 seconds pass. Whichever comes first I take my finger off the starter.



Huey Sling-load Mission

Written by Phil on . Posted in DCS Huey


Air to Air refuelling used to be one of the hardest things you could do in Flight Simulation especially Falcon BMS and DCS A-10C. It took me years to master it.

Now we have “Take off, pick up a heavy sling-load and drop it off at another location” in DCS Huey. This is by far the most difficult and task saturating thing I have ever tried in any sim. It took me hours to just get into the position where I could hover over the load. Then you have to press a series of buttons to hook up and that’s when the fun starts. Without the load you spend a lot of your time continually inputting foot pedals left and right, cyclic stick in the right hand and the collective in the left. All this has to be coordinated well together to stay in position then with the load added you have to exaggerate all your small inputs and quickly unlearn and learn this way of doing it. I haven’t managed to drop the load off yet but I have managed to create some pretty fireballs. Oh that’s me!

Having a great time this holiday period. Hearts Of Iron 3 campaign is going well and i can now just about land the DCS Huey see this video for proof. I have bought and downloaded Flaming Cliffs 3. I have avoided this module because for me it’s the lightweight version in terms of complexity but no one can deny the fun that can be had dogfighting in F-15C’s with guns only against a friend online.This has basically killed many hours of my time but it has been an absolute hoot. Check out my perfect guns solution on my good friend Chump (appropriately named might i add 🙂


DCS Huey Start Up

I made this quick and very basic tutorial on how to start up the DCS Huey for some friends on the DCS forums. If you’re after more advanced stuff this is not what you are looking for.

Had to get it. Just downloaded it and made a quick video of my first attempt at takeoff and landing. Not pretty. I will post it as soon as it has uploaded. Warning!! lots of swearing.

I have all but one of the DCS series now. I don’t know about getting Flaming Cliffs. It looks good but i think i have been spoilt by the hardcore stuff by DCS and this seems a bit of a lightweight option.
