Hardware issues aside, I will be in no rush to get FSX. I have read a lot of forum posts and reviews and come to the conclusion that FSX has little to offer that would force me to rush out and buy it. One major feature has not been improved from what I can determine. Had this feature been improved, ...

In either the 2D or VC cockpits the autopilot is visible. You can also view it in the Flight Control centre. Turn it on by clicking the centre button below the yelow triangle, then click whatever channel you desite (ALT, HDG etc) Thanks, Brian. I subsequently found that you need to be above 200 ft ...

This is the first chopper that I have been able to fly for any length of time and the model is stunning - congratulations for all involved.

It is also available from Avsim and probably "all nodes" as well.

Well, Well, Well! Talk about red-faced. :redface: I am such a fool. I just discoverd there is a click area above the red lights on the feather panel that allows you to de-feather!
