Just Hovering around in the Sea King.

ust a little bit of Hover and slow manoeuvre practice with the Sea king ( Alpha release version ). Always helps to cross train on different types, especially when flying smaller more nimble types it helps to bring out something older, bigger and less sensitive to practice with.
Flight conducted using Pro Flight Trainer, Puma helicopter stick set.

Tried out the Sea King from the hanger, got it off the ground and into flight but it tended to bob up & down, like little stalls in a plane.
I can manage to fly the MD-500E spot landings are a work in practice.

Another question with the MD-500E I keep getting chatter when going through the 60 knot airspeed band a bit like when over speeding?

chatter? thats more likely to be from the radio picking up atis stuff. try retuning the radio when you next hear it.

I don't have the radio switched on, it something to do with the blades, vibration and noise change when accelerating from low speed to cruise speed say 60 - 90 knots.

If you have an NVIDIA card you could use ShadowPlay which
will not use your CPU cycles to do so either.

Tried both out and found that the Nvidia programme did not slow the fps to point which was un-flyable.
Any how made a film but it end up 850MB so I shared it if that is acceptable

The Chatter your hearing is not chatter, its Blade vortex interaction.

A couple of visualisations of the blades hitting the vortices.
