Havoc,
Is there anymore updates on the progress.  Since the loss of hovercontrol most have not found any site with discussions from the devs on this.

Thanks, and Happy New Year ;)

Update from Dodosim developers
07/01/19

I have been in contact with the developers for some time. I reached out after Hovercontrol went down. Below is one of the replies.

We donít have too much news at the moment.
It has been a tough time recently with some unfortunate events away from work life but we are back into the swing of things.

The main programming has been rewritten in 64 bit for Prepar3d.
There is some detail work still to do but mostly the new graphics and model is holding things up.

The P3d V4 version will be based on our commercial/military training software Ė so it a completely different beast with zero speed autorotations and the rotors that are driven by air flowing up through them so you have to control Rotor RPM by pulling pitch through descents and manoeuvres so that you donít get an overspeed.

The military in particular wanted to be able to model an engine failure in hover/hover taxi with all the clues and pitfalls. Always an impossible thing to do on the platform previously but Simon managed to solve it. And all tha has been transferred over to the 206.

We had a lot of those kinds of demands but we also had an army of the finest test pilots helping us - literally an army, navy and airforce 😊 able to jump between aircraft and simulator to get things right.

You may also remember we have another aircraft in the works that is a civilianised version of one of those projects. Iíve done the airfile and some of the graphics and Simon has done the systems, additional behaviours and gauge coding etc but there is quite a bit to be done to make it suitable for a public release.

Sorry there isnít anything concrete to report at the moment.

We work on it when we can, in between supporting major existing customers, commercial work and so on Ė health and everything else allowing.

All the best

Thanks Havoc,
I was hoping to get her sooner.  It been years now without a real good ship to practice VRS management. Some of the newer stuff is not that detailed.  :(

thank you very much for the news. I'm trying to imagine what a splendid product it will be. "the clues that make you understand that you could have engine failure during a hovering" ... wow, I'm not in the skin anymore. :)

the airport where I work is LIRV and is divided into operating part (airplanes and helicopters) and flight school (bell 206). the "flying school" part has been finished for a while, now the textures (and some buildings) of the operative part are missing
