I have been trying for hours trying to get how to fly this damn helicopter in FS2002. Everytime I try to land it either goes psycho and goes straight down or I actually land and it slides a few hundred feet. I had the same problems in FS2000 but thought it was a flaw, I doubt it would happen in the new FS2002. So it is pilot error.

i knwo how u feel ukk have a few rollovers at first.
u cant fly it unless u have a joystick with rudder controll. u need to get the chopped into a bit of a hover. when u land it has to be at 0 airspeed or the chopper will go along the ground. slowly let it go to the ground but not fast.

well the aim isnt to slow down by bringing the throttle down it is to be achieved by pulling back to revers the force of the current motion. ie opulling back iwill make the cohopper slow down and eventually go to a negative airspeed. however when u pull back the chopper will rise because u are concentratin some more of the rotors force into pushing u upwards instead of forwards. so before u puul back on the joystick u have to lower the throttle a bit. keep watching the Vertical speed indicator to make sur u dont descend. so if u start to descend give it a bit more throttle but dont push forward on the stick.
also the key to landing it is to put the joystick sensitivity to minimal.
when u fly the chopper u dont really move the stick u tense the muscles in ur hand to feel che chopper.
its very hard to explain. but just dont use big amounts of movement on the joystick.
itll take a while but ull get there.

In reality, heli pilots need loads of practice before they can do it well. In FS it is even harder.
Personally, I have about a 1 in 10 ratio of successfull takeoffs and 1 in 20 or so on landing the darn thing

so ur telling me if i got in a real chopper id be able to fly it. i get 100 % takeoffs and landings now.
that makes me feel good
i wanna fly one.
i wonder what would happen if went to the airport and asked them to take me up and just hand over the controlls and let me land.heheheheh.
