Hi guys, I don't mean to sound like I am whining, but I am having a helluva time landing any of the helicopters that I have installed on my system.  I can get off the ground and fly around easily, but I just cannot seem to land with out crashing.

I try to keep my vertical speed at 300 fps when I am descending.  Usually what happens though is when I am just about to touch down, the nose of the helicopter raises, so I start to fly backwards.  Basically, I just lose control, I wonder if it has something to do with the down wash of the rotor blades.

Any help/advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Try practicing hovering. If you can hover then you can land. Another technique if you have to get done is do a run on landing. basically land it like a plane (preferably on a runway).  Helicopters take practice above all else. It's not easy. You have to retrain your brain how to make it work. Just keep it up.

Most probably the backward movement is induced by your control.

Try to think as going back to hovering at 30 feet agl, take your time and space. When you are in a hover, land.

With practice you will be able to do this in a very precise way and land exactly on the helipad.

Once you master this, try HTR... :)

Turn the ability to crash 'off' in settings.  This will save you time from having to restart until you get the basics down.  Once you figure it out turn it back 'on'

Landing details of helicopter was a trilling information for me. I read each line with full of excitement. Really thankful to you for sharing this type of post.

This is a common problem with beginners.

Just a note, if I may: There are some scenery's that cause a crash when you land at them, regardless of how well you do the actual landing.
Does this happen at just one place, and do you have an add-on scenery for that particular place? If so, you can try removing that scenery and trying it, to see if that is the problem.
Or try it at a known "default" airport somewhere. One you KNOW for sure you don't have any add-on scenery for.
I also agree with all the others, though. Hovering, both in and out of ground effect, is an absolutely vital skill to have. I know, it can be frustrating to learn, but the first time you manage a "good" hover, it's a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. All you can do is practice, practice, practice!
Keep at it, you'll get there :)

I find it very correct when people share their own experiences, and now I work in the magazine, although I recently ordered articles about the essay service. But this is what I achieved thanks to the work of other, more professional writers, which I learned from this work.
