For the Rotorheads: NH-90 for Flight Simulator!

Adrian Brausch brings us his wonderfully modelled NH-90 military helicopter for FS9 via the RNZAF website.  With three visual models and a great soundset, this model is sure to please.  I took it out for a brief flight around SeaTac and then north toward the Oil Hotel (fictional scenery north of Golden Gardens on Puget Sound) and am impressed with the flight dynamics, but really missed a virtual cockpit.  I don’t have a lot of time flying helicopters (maybe 100 hours), but this one was finicky during transitions, particularly during hover.  This is such a great model that I am looking forward to getting to know this beast a lot better!

Note: According to the website, an FSX version is in the works that will feature a virtual cockpit.  The FS9 has some limitations in FSX.

Happy Rotoring!
