Changelogs

Stay up to date

  • Version 1.3 June 06, 2021

    In our screenshots you can see that the H135 now has an EFB that is capable of displaying a web browser or a screen capture from one of your computer's displays.

    This feature requires a bit of advanced setup and we want to walk users through the process as well as take your feedback - the files necessary to run the EFB are exclusive to our Discord members for this reason.

    You can join our Discord channel at https://discord.gg/dUNDGb2Z7c

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.

Now I'm having fun with msfs2020..Great product

Your work is just AMAZING!! Thank

you! I need to buy you a beer now 😉

It's a very good Helicopter, the best in MSFS!!!

Love this, thank you and keep up the good work!

Quand sortira le EC145 ?

my throttle still not working!!!

Hello and thank you for this great job. Doesn't this model have a lack of power? thank you for your reply

Anyone knows if the GTC will be fixed? I really enjoy this helicopter, but it's a shame that we can't use this function, at least properly. Thanks!!

Would you have any idea why during my flight the fps drop dramatically and you usage drops as well. It does not appear to be a cpu bottleneck either. I am using the latest WT G3000 mod. Any ideas?

LOVE IT... Thanks

Looks great, very functional, relativly easy to fly

Any guide to the controls, I cannot get out of just hovering lol!

how do i close the side panel on the right .GTC nav HDG flight model etc.. used to be able to click it..

i notice you cant flip the engine switches now either.. have to click flight ready button

請問我點進去為什麼會立即閃退到桌面.是否那裏出差錯了?

This is really fun to see in a game, i've worked on the h135 and h145 for the norwegian air ambulance and exactly the LN-OOB which you can equip as an skin, i have changed rotorblades and many other maintenance tasks and even test fly it in the co-pilot seat trying to hover and fly the very own aircraft myself. i got videoes of this aswell XD this is not the first time a skin/aircraft has been in a game that i have worked on. but this one is special as i have controlled the sticks myself. thanks!

This is already a very good work! I love it and this it, what was missing so badly. But I noticed a kind of alag when I'm flying... the Helicopter seems to jump a little even in the green speed. It feels like lag but it isn't. When I'm flying any plane in the same settings, it is smoother. Could there be a chance it is the flight model? Or am I doing something wrong?

Hi there. Love this Project. So much fun to fly. Is there a problem with V1.3 or are my settings out?. When I start flying at a reasonable height say above 500ft it starts to tip backwards on it own and seems uncontrollable for a few moments. Any ideas?...Cheers...Dave...

Is V1.3 compatible with MSFS Performance Plus testing? Thanks, Mike

So I take it any further development for this Heli has been abandoned as it's been over a month since its last update..

Once again I have to thank you guys for this extremly joyful ride! Today I've got my VR Headset up and running and did four hours (!) of flight time in your amazing H135. I was blown away by this fully immersive realism and all the small details you put into this project. There are so much things you can only expirience in VR in this aircraft! Did you know that you can actually see the power output on the right side of the cockpit? And there are cable cutters above you! And try flying without the doors in VR! 😀 Once again and forever: Thanks so much to all of you! Will buy your H145 of course when it's out!

Bonjour, je rencontre un soucis avec le h135. Sur le panneau de contrôle, j'ai un flight mode en "Do not fly" en rouge que je ne parviens pas à modifier... non cliquable...

Sur les glaces cockpit, j'ai un "wait, loading control module", avec notamment des indications en rouge "fail" rotor rpm... Lorsque je clique "ready to take off", seul le moteur 1 se met en route et plafonne à 25%... Quelqu'un sait-il d'où cela peut-il provenir svp ?

Cordialement,

L DOUDET
