Glad to see you are still around and flying.

I guess once I actually fly my 500, and then find a donor 500 for the AirWolf body, I might kinda be able to bother you over there in the big bird land. AirWolf is kinda scale ..... isn't it?

You just need to watch a few Stallone films, I think everything he flew heli wise had every armament system available attached. Especially the Hind lookalike in Rambo III.

Nice pictures Craig. Thanks for posting them, they will be a useful reference.

SilverSport - these days they would be flying a real Hind in those movies. The USA picked up a few from either Iraq or Afghanistan, cannot remember which off hand. I think the guys flying them have been quite impressed.

If you use Phoenix Sim, check out the Hind model I posted recently.

I might have to blow the dust of of my copy of Phoenix.

I don't seem to get into RF Sim enough. Been throwing around the nS2, but will need some serious sim time before doing the same with the M2 that will be shipping soon. I tried a flip with the 130S today, I was what I thought was 3 mistakes high, it turned out to be 1.33 mistakes high. Guess I should try that in 100% IU mode. Well tomorrow is another day.
