The RH-2 is the first swashplate controlled helicopter I have released. It is a light helicopter which is fairly maneuverable. It does not have enough cyclic to achieve loops or rolls though (this can be done via modifying the E2 it uses). It’s max speed is about 85km/h and top speed around 110km/h. The speed of the rotor blades at the tips is kept roughly, around 273 km/h. It’s top speed is limited by Gmod’s speed limit (358 km/h).
If jinto’s speed mod is downloaded, the maximum speed can be increased (along with rotor blade speed) improving performance. Control wise it is quite smooth, although it is easy to get some wobble during hard cyclic changes. It’s best to do smooth and coordinated cyclic changed to get the best flight possible.
The cockpit has a airspeed, vertical speed (how fast the craft is moving up or down), altitude (it’s a the Z position of the heli relative to the world, so the values it outputs many times are strange), collective (there is no negative reading, so there is no indication of ether positive or negative collective, I don’t know why I did this when I build it), rotor RPM and engine toggle indicators. The rotor RPM and engine toggle indicators change color to tell their output.
Although it duplicated alright, the axis constrain which hold the blade together didn’t duplicate right along with weakening of the blade constrains, this makes the helicopter when pasted vibrate a lot. To get around from this the blades must be re-constrained on the helicopter. Read the “VibrationDecrease” file in the zip to do so, also watch this video tutorial on how to reattach the blades:
Controls are mouse (cyclic), W and S (collective) , A and D (yaw), R (rotor spool up) and alt (cyclic toggle/Turn on or off cyclic control).
