Hi everyone,

I have observed something with the AgustaWestland EH101 -- one of the three default helicopters provided with FSX.

From what I can see, the left horizontal stabilizer on the tail of the aircraft is missing.  I am quite sure, in fact, that it is missing.  A horizontal stabilizer should be in place on both the left side and the right side, correct?

I have also noticed that, whenever I fly this helicopter -- up to now, I am able to fly helicopters only using Dirk's autopilot -- my attitude is off to one side.

So, here are my two questions:

First, does the virtual representation of this aircraft in FSX actually lack a horizontal stabilizer?

Second, would this cause the helicopter to fly rolled a bit to one side?

Thank you.

Stanley

No, there is only one horizontal stabiliser, on the right-hand side. A quick Google image search would have revealed this fact.

You will find images with a single and double stabiliser online.

This is because the production model has only one but the early prototypes and test aircraft had them on both sides.
Any photo/drawing you see with 2 stabs is the prototype/test configuration
