Well I haven’t released any helicopters for about a year so I’m releasing the mini choppas I made throughout 2009. This is my first post here so let me get used to using it. So how do I upload pictures and stuff? Sorry I expected a little button or something for attachments.
Wow you found those fast. I uploaded those and by the time I logged in here you had that post up.

There’s mah choppas. If you only download one, I’d go with a SUAV. They’re definitely unique.
Here’s the FLIR link
Here’s the GDC SVN - you’ll need it for the guns. Yes it’s safe, I made it, and it requires gcombat core to work and GCX if you want to see the bullet models. I’ll probably be including them in the SVN. Right now it’s only on Nodex, but you can use it on your server if you want to.
If you don’t know how to use the SVN, make a folder and use the SVN checkout thingy to that link.
By the way to see these choppas you’ll need;
PHX3 SVN for sure ----- People say they can’t see most of the helicopters because this isn’t up to date. UPDATE IT!
Wire SVN for sure
Here’s a video of the SUAV. I didn’t make the video and not the entire thing is from the suav, the parts with the really fancy HUD are the AC130. But you get the point.
Here’s a brief description of the helicopters.
Acrobat - My first minicopter, this can easily do barrel rolls and backflips. It’s a little harder to fly than the others. WASD pitches and rolls, m1 m2 yaws, and space and shift go up and down. R shoots.
Bluebird - My second helicopter. This is fairly easy to fly and is meant for ground target strafing. WASD pitches and rolls, m1 m2 yaws, and space and shift go up and down. R shoots.
SUAV M390 - My third helicopter, this thing flies itself in a circle around the map while you gun. Press space for camera mode, shift zooms, and WASD moves the camera around. M1 m2 shoot the guns. The sensor tracks anything in front of it using my leet angular tracking expression. It orbits at a distance of 390 meters from the center of the map, hence the “M-390.” This is not the newest version of this helicopter, keep in mind I only release a tiny percentage of my stuff. Have fun! By the way this thing only works on the biggest maps (such as freespace) and it will crash into the walls on small maps like flatgrass.
Kamil - My 4th minicopter, this is for general attack. Mouse controls pitch and roll while WASD yaws and goes up and down. This is compatible with some of my attachments which are included in the download. M1 M2 fires the attachments if you have them spawned.
SUAV Strafer - My sixth helicopter. I released 1-4 and skipped 5 because it is imperfect. Anyway, for those of you who downloaded the SUAV M-390 and liked it, this is an alternative to going is circles forever. This variant of the SUAV is built for strafing (hard mounted weapons with extra firepower). Of course its Semi-Unmanned so you don’t have to fly it yourself; you line up targets and unload ordinance. The downside to this is that the entire helicopter body must be facing the target and therefore there is no bullet drop compensation. The controls for this helicopter are much harder to get used to and it uses every available button. Read the thread carefully!
