Huron leaps into air and crashes while is engine off
Acknowledged, NormalPublic


Even after a full 20 seconds of spin down and the blades clearly not having enough energy for lift the helicopter will fling into the air and come back down and crash.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Operating System Version
Advanced Flight Model
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Set Game Option to Advanced Flight mode.
  2. Open Eden editor and create Huron on ground with only Player as pilot.
  3. Push joystick throttle to minimum thrust
  4. Turn Engine On and wait for blades to fully spin up.
  5. Get Out of Huron
  6. Push joystick throttle to maximum thrust.
  7. Wait a full 20 seconds!
  8. Get In Huron as Pilot

You will see the Huron will leap into the air and come down crashing and burning.

Additional Information

It acts like the helicopter is made of styrofoam and weighs nothing as soon as you reenter and then a second later reality sets in. BOOM!

Thank you for the report. Interesting I was trying to reproduce, but I was unsuccessful.

When I get to this point

  1. Get Out of Huron

THe engine is automatically turned off and I have no control of the helicopter anymore. Could you please provide a video?

Could it be you don't have a throttle control?
Here is the video

Aaah Ok. Now I see. We will have a look at it and see if anything can be done about it.
