UH60 - Randy

Post by BFDG_Chuck » Mon Nov 13, 2017 1:33 pm

Greetings Chuck
Tried to post this in the UH60 support forum but was unable to locate where/how to post. Sooo...perhaps this will reach you.

Just purchased the UH60 (..Thank you!) and started to read the Pilot Operation Handbook and noticed what I believe to be an error on page 26. Item #25 says "P1/P2 warning / advise indicators" when actually...#25 is the "GNS 530". Also, #26 is actually the "Engine Indicators Panel". In summary, it appears as if there is no item reference number for the "P1/P2 warning / advise indicators".

Your thoughts?

Randy

Please accept these observations and thoughts in the spirit of "tweaking" a very fun flight model:

1. Throttle Levers and programmed joystick “Throttle Buttons”
a. Joystick programmed throttle buttons become effective after mouse click on throttle levers advancing
them to full throttle “FLIGHT” position. Couldn't this be done exclusively with joystick buttons?
2. Sound – no difference in sound whether inside heli or viewed from exterior
3. Joystick programmed pitch trim works well
4. With Collective in FULL DOWN position:
a. Main rotor blade angle of attack is too positive
b. With power set at idle:
i. Advance cyclic forward and tail rises off ground
c. Power advanced to 100%
i. Pull cyclic back and nose rises off ground – will almost lift off
d. Produces an unrealistic autorotation maneuver
5. Startup Procedure – Pilot Operational Handbook - page 19
#3 - No APU sound after “APU startup”
#6 - Two #6 entries, Fuel levers and Air source
Suggest:
#11 – Generators (L&R) - ON
#12 - APU and APU Generator – OFF
#13 – Ignitors – Check OFF
#14 – Power Levers – FLIGHT position
