Okay, its probably not classified as OBVIOUSLY wrong... :lol:

And it may be where I lived, way out west, but a majority of the 530F's I ever encountered were High Skids.
Could be a personal bias too, I prefer "long legs". ;) :P

I just wanted to say how happy I am that you guys are doing the 530! It is my all time favourite heli and so far there are none in FS that really do it justice. I agree with Leorstef about the high skids. will there be an option to switch out the low skids for the high skids? If not, no biggie as I don't really mind either way! One more question, will you guys be modelling the twist grip throttle? I have a home made collective that has a twist grip which I can assign as an axis and as far as I know only the Dodosim 206 has an axis for the throttle.

This looks like it could be a good one, between this, the King Air 350 and the Bell 407 I am not going to have anymore time for real life.

How is the Bell 407 coming along?

Looking sharp! I signed up for the forums just to follow this topic and watch the progress!

If you guys need an MD530F POH or maintenance manual let me know. I have the PDF's from the MD website. I know it's waaay in the future, but it would be OUTSTANDING and make the model that much more "real" to add the "depth" to the 3d gauges like the attached photo :D

How does one go about getting on the beta team?

John

Can we have a hook modelled on this one please, and is it possible to leave the right set of controls out?

Looks really good though and looking forward to it right after the Kingair!

Great previews. At the current rate I am spending more time in helicopters. Please keep it going!
