FAQ - ADDITIONAL NOTES

More in depth notes are available on our Discord with images showing recommending mappings and settings.

 

With our Airbus H135 the “Throttle axis” controls the H135's collective, and the H135's FADEC system (enabled from the middle PFD panel) will automatically control the RPM and engines and must be turned on to fly.  

We have multiple flight modes to choose from on the lower GTN screen:

* Xbox: Less responsive controls optimized for xbox sticks.

* Basic: More responsive version of Xbox mode, lacking many dynamic helicopter effects

* Advanced: Introduces engine torque and more subtle dynamic effects that add up to feel like a real life helicopter.

If you encounter an issue that is not covered in the notes below and cannot be resolved by asking our testers in the #?feedback channel on our Discord, please send a message to @Support Bot describing your issue - this will create a ticket for our team to review with you.

 

KNOWN ISSUES AND TIPS

You can assume that all issues below are being worked on by the development team. We have listed the temporary fixes and ETAs whenever possible.

* Make sure the FADEC button is on before taking off for flight

* Some external tools (like Kinetic Assistant and PushbackHelper) leave a file in your Documents folder called SimConnect.cfg that prevents H135 from reading your controls. Rename SimConnect.cfg to any other name and then start the sim. H135 controls will now be functional. Don't forget to check this before each flight if you use these tools

* “Throttle Axis” must be used. The helicopter does not support split throttles such as “Throttle 1 Axis” “Throttle 2 Axis”

* First load of the H135 requires 30 to 90 seconds to initialize our flight control module before flying. The “Flight Mode” button will be red and say “DO NOT FLY” until our module is initialized and ready for flight.

* When first loading into the sim, you must move your throttle axis for our helicopter to recognize it, otherwise you may find the helicopter takes off on its own.

* Xbox controllers by default are unable to split and control the yaw axis, there are workarounds posted below for the time being.

* We allow you to crash and damage the helicopter, disable crash detection if having a tough time

* Flying under bridges will cause a collision if crash detection is enabled, and on occasion require the sim to be restarted, fly under at your own risk

* The helicopter cannot have multiple devices mapped to the same input axis at the same time. Ex: using a X56 joystick and Xbox controller at the same time will conflict if they share any bindings

 

SENSITIVITY SETTINGS 

Players should adjust sensitivity for their personal taste. Dead zone range needs to be adjusted depending on your own hardware. Other owners of your hardware in our Discord server may be able to offer assistance however.

 

XBOX CONTROLLER TIPS

It is recommended that you create a new profile in controls specifically for the H135 so that you do not impact any other aircraft you fly. Select your H135 control preset when flying the H135.

You can have full control by remapping both joysticks to function like an RC drone, at the sacrifice of moving the camera around:

* Left stick: Throttle Axis and Rudder Axis, 
* Right stick Elevator Axis and Aileron Axis
* Camera controls must be removed from Right Stick to avoid the camera moving around when trying to fly.

 

KINETIC ASSISTANT & PUSHBACK HELPER USERS

Have no ability to control the H135? Used Kinetic Assistant or Pushback Helper or other addons?

Check your Documents folder for a file named SimConnect.cfg. If you have this file, rename it to another name, then restart the sim. H135 will now work.

Wow. Great helicopter. Emergency and search missions in Neofly are so much fun now.

Hello - I might be stupid, but, I have installed the helicopter, start a flight after having choosen an airport. The machine is there, engine on. I check the throttle : OK (I see the throttle moving in the machine) , I check the command (up/down/right/left) : OK. ........................ But I can not take off ????? Can someone help ? I have read the User's guide .... Thank you for your help !!!

Thanks A lot for the support...To the community and to the support...Great job...

Pleasee...Is nobody there that can spent 2 mins only to read my posts from like 7 hours ago about a bug in controls for H-135 and other helis...Realy guys I beg you... I suffer from depression and other bullsit and when I start something I cant stop...Nvm how small is that...Its just my freaking brain...I haven't slept at all...From yesterday all day and all night trying to fix it PLEASE...Atleast give me some ideas or smh...

Guys, please help when I am inside the Hype Performance Group – Airbus H145 Beta 2 cockpit I see only black window glass, I can”t see outside the window glass of the plane. all windows are black. please help

I want to make a review on my aviation blog Aviationemy|https://aviationemy.com for this fine work, the aircraft is just amazing for a freeware!

the modeling is excellent, sounds are perfect. but am having some problem to connect the joystick to some of controls in the aircraft. pls can you fix this problem.

  1. Guys please can someone help me with H-135 heli? I have problems with starting the Garmin system..The buttons for batteries are missing...The Yoke or how is called for helis is working fine but the leaver that goes up and down does not move at all..Also, my throttle is set to A by default but don't want to throttle the engine at all... I re-installed the addon 10 times... Tries to find answers on youtube and on the web but nothing. so please can somebody help me.
  2. btw it's the same with all kinds of Helicopters that I've tried different mods..But same

After unzipping the folder into my Community folder, FS2020 fails to load. It gets about halfway through the load process (on the progress bar after "pushing any button") and stops responding and I have to kill it with task manager. I delete the folder from the community Folder and the Sim loads fine.

I asked in the forums and was directed here...

https://forums.flightsim.to/thread/929-fs2020-not-loading-after-adding-hpg-airbus-h135-on-pc/?postID=3181#post3181

Quick question: How do I use the collective with a joystick? I can't find the setting in the controls options. Right now, when I increase the throttle, the rotor spins faster but I cant get off the ground.

Can anyone help please? Thank you in advance.

Sad... I am unable to leave a little donation by PayPal. Your account seems shut down?

Great aircraft!!! Huge thank you!!!!

My view seems to shake left to right if i do not counter with my pedals, how do i fix this?

I love this Helicopter. But, the latest version is impossible to fly. What am I doing wrong? It was fine, easy to fly until the last 2 updates. Now it is uncontrollable and moves wherever it wants.

great

Incredible! What a great way to sight-see up close at a slower pace. After making a custom controller setup for the Heli specifically, I had so much fun cruising around. Looking forward to what's next!

In the mod manager comes a message that it is not compatible with WU6. Does anyone know this?

l'helicoptere n'apparait pas sur msfs2020 quelqu'un aurait la solution svp?

Merci beaucoup, super travail

H135 is great. I created a video for that ...

https://youtu.be/03uKAvKu3Bw

Thank again for such fantastic invention

Does this plane crash my sim? I've had problems in the sim after I downloaded this aircraft

I love this thing!!

Can anyone tell me what a yellow warning light that reads

ENG 1 CHIP

means?

I done did something to it but its still flying fine! lolol!

love this heli!

Cheers!
