[V5] Helicopter FDE: Lagacy vs New

Postby Kaiii3 » Sun Aug 30, 2020 3:53 pm

The SDK provides two smaples for Helicopter FDEs (new and lagacy). Both FDEs are used within the default Helicopters of the Sim:

Sikorsky UH-60M Battlehawk is using the lagacy FDE
Sikorsky CH-53E - USMC is using the new FDE

When now trying to get the helicopters to taxi from a waypoint to a new waypoint using SimConnect only the Helicopter with the lagacy model starts taxiing. This behavior was also observed with our own AI Models (using the new FDE).

When using the helicopter as User-Helicopter the user is able to make the helicopter taxiing my moving the joystick forward and slowly increase the thottle. When checking the AI Helicopter it was clear that the AI is trying to Taxi the helicopter with the joystick fully centered.

Is there any other way of getting the helicopters (new FDE) to taxi to waypoints added by SimConnect?

I will take a look at these files now. I think it's pretty weird behavior.
