About the Robinson R44 Raven II Helicopter

The four-seat Robinson R44 Raven II helicopter is a high performing, reliable machine that is easy to maintain. R44s have a two-bladed rotor system, T-bar cyclic and the latest in Robinson technology including streamlined instrument panels and crashworthy bladder fuel tanks.
The R44's aerodynamic fuselage optimizes airspeed and fuel
economy. Hydraulic controls eliminate feedback forces and provide responsive handling. A low tail-rotor tip speed, newly designed muffler and large cambered tail reduce flyover noise.
Raven II helicopters are powered by Lycoming's IO-540 fuel injected
engine. The IO-540 delivers better altitude performance, increased payload and eliminates the need for carburetor heat.

Great Project!! But stoped to start after world update 12

nice and perfect work, congratulations, thank you!

I'm really enjoying this helli, thanks for making it.

The only problem I'm having is I cant work out how to turn on the GPS, the screen is blank.

What am I missing? where do I click to switch it on?

Great helicopter! I like it more than the default G2.

SOUND PROBLEM. SAME intensity sond of helicopter on 100RP forexample and same sound in max rpm. Will be good fix it please... When I was use helicopter at airland software sound was okay

Tested today.. fly good.. Good Job Mate!!!!

Can you fix the rotor clutch switch. It should just engage when you close the red cover. In VR its a lot of fiddle with the switch below it.

Looks and feels great! Thank you.

Works great! It really helped me making my real r44 flight lesson a great succes! And thank you for putting so much effort in a free product. Don't mind people over here that don't really know how much work this is. Looking forward to updates, take your time we are patient 😉

Not good one thing. Sound of helicopter without changes. If I have full throttle (colective up) or full down helicopter have same sound of engine... Will be good repair it.

Engine sound is the same regardless of collective (throttle) position or blade speed. Please fix. Other than that good heli.

Thank you so much for this amazing model! I don't know if there are some ag pilots here but today I saw that a new payware B206 has a spray kit accesory. I was thinking about it and will be awesome if you guys make something similar to this model. Like the B206, the R44 is used a lot for spraying!

I realy like this, i hope the h125 come with the 40th anniversary flight model !

Does the sound mod work on this one too?

This thing is great! Just wondered if that sound mod would add something, but not sure if its the same.

I really love flying this heli. I look forward to its continued develoment.

I noticed one issue. When in drone mode and you fly away from the helicopter, the engine noise stays very loud no matter how far you fly away with the drone. With other aircraft, the engine noise dimishes and eventually goes away as you get farther from the aircraft.

Thanks for the heli! I tried doing autorotations in it and it seems quite off. No matter how low the the throttle or rotor rpm is it still flies normally as if it's at normal speed. Please fix. Also there's no BEEP when low engine rpm. Thanks

This freeware helicopter is totally impossible to land with, but flies ok, I hope he gets the ground effect fixed so that it doesn't roll around to the hills and wind, it can't be me who can't land this helicopter. 😉

Brilliant update, now the manifold pressure is fixed I'm really enjoying this helicopter. Much appreciated !

Super job...

how do you activate the floats?
