Collision failure on helicopters with advanced flight model enabled
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When a helicopter is on a roof or on the deck of a ship, if simple flight model is enabled, the helicopter sits perfectly well on the deck.

However, if the advanced flight model is enabled, the helicopter sinks into the roof/deck.

I have tested this on many other things you can land on. I landed a Hummingbird on the deck of a harbor and the skids sink into it so that i cannot take off anymore.

This mostly happens if you land on objects.
(except of the hospital roof, it works fine in this case)
