unable to eject/get out, after loosing propeller.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


i meesed around with the advanced flight model, and decided to try and strress the heli, enough for it to break apart. though i was only able to loose the rotor, this was enough for me, when i then try to scroll down, and use the eject or get out feature, it no longer appears. this has happened 4 out of 4 times so far.

have not tried without advanced flight model. {F25671}

You can't eject. For some reason, BIS thinks it's realistic that pilots can't eject. Always been like this in ARMA 3.

odd, since i can do it as long as the heli is fine. if its busted i cant.

Which heli are we talking about?

so far, the pawnee and hummingbird, have yet to use another heli, but i will try that soon, since i want to find as much info as possible.

okay, tried most other helicopters, have yet to try planes, or cehicles, but eject option in action menu disapears, and the eject/get out button does not work either(default keybinding V) will test planes and ground vehicles, once i get the time to do so.

I can tell you already that A164 have this problem too

see my report:

seems like a rather big problem. but so far, i have tried multiple helicopters, and the different versions of them, and all of them, the eject/get out dissapears, however strangely enough, if i manage to land it, after breaking somehting, they both appear, and work as they should, after a safe landing, where its not really needed anymore... LOGIC!

is it possible for you to record a short video of the behavior? We were unable to reproduce it.

it sure is, i will do it as soon as im at my gaming computer, not so easy to record while in shcool :P

could you please verify that the issue is still valid and if so, post a short video showing it? It would be much appreciated, thank you.

yep, i will upload to youtube, and place a link here.

Could you please post the video?


damn, forgot about the video, it is still valid, will post ASAP.

video uploading to youtube now, will update with a link when its done, however, the problem seems worse now, since i cannot eject even with the propeller still on anymore, previously, the option to eject was there, when propeller was on, but was lost, when propeller was lost.
