thank you for the feedback.

Unless the heli is given an order to move somewhere it will simply try to keep close (not exactly on a spot, just close). Are you having some trouble with the heli's movement when giving waypoints or orders afterwards?

It's when it's given another waypoint. It'll rotate to face it, then slide backwards like in the video.
The mission in the video has 2 waypoints. A "Lift Cargo" on the car, and then a "Drop Cargo" where the helicopter spawned.

My actual mission had the Drop Cargo waypoint about a kilometer away, same result, it'll turn towards it, then move backwards like the video.

At rare times, it'll start slowly moving towards the target waypoint.

Would you mind uploading the mission or a simpler one as a repro (preferably unpacked, not pbo) so we can try to reproduce the issue?

The AI seems to have trouble with cargo in general. Like, the Huron is better at it, but I find it often circling the Cargo a few times then crash full speed into a tree.

And if they do manage to pick it up, they fly like they're on auto hover.

And they won't go anywhere if they're on the ground and the engine is off.
