This remake of the little FSX Bell UH-1 Huey made by Tolga Piskin was a model that I recall using in the past for FS2004, and I was huge fan of its style and its overall design back then. It looked very good and carried a lot of nice features and additions that made it extremely fun to fly and fun to engage with. However, the mod stopped working after FS2004 and this meant that I only ever got a rare chance to use it again, until recently. Eric Buchmann made a wide range of changes to the package and adapted it for use with FSX, and I have to say that I was very impressed with the aircraft.

It carries a range of depth and detail that really improves the model and brings it up to FSX standard, with various adjustments being made to the actual performance and the compatibility of the model. It works with relatively few problems, although we did suffer a few sound issues from time to time when testing. I personally never found it to be too big an issue, but if you are a big one for sound it can be a bit of an issue when these issues do strike.

However, that aside, this is great fun to fly around in – it feels really exciting to get around the skies with and it makes it nice and simple to actually get to grips with its friendly and easy navigation and flight style. As an aircraft it’s more or less a piece of cake to fly, and has a really simple learning curve; this is one of the reasons it was so popular in real-life for many pilots, too!

The aircraft has become a bit of a popular choice for me since I installed it for FSX, as it’s just my kind of aircraft. It feels really easy and nimble in the skies and I never find myself struggling or agonizing over the controls and getting them to work in my favor. Instead, I can usually just take full control of the aircraft and get to where I want to be relatively quickly – its ease of flight is definitely one of the defining factors of the model.

I have to say, it still feels as easy to fly and enjoy as it was in the past thanks to the overall shape and design quality being carried over into FSX. If you want to be able to enjoy an aircraft with a fair amount about it and a lot to enjoy, you should definitely try this out; it’s very simple to fly and makes it an easy choice if you just want to cruise in a coo, popular helicopter.

Great Bird, I must admit I suck at flying the Helis in FSX but this huey is actually pretty easy to handle.

Flew that slick in 1968, just about to refresh my knowledge and memory, thanks for this excellent opportunity!

i love huey because of fly-by's inside the philippines!

Tux McBeaMon, 20 Jun 2016 10:51:47 GMT

Awesome job, thanks very much for sharing this. Only slight negative is, as Lynce mentions, the repeated start up sound effect every few seconds. Other than that as close to perfect as you could possibly hope for. Thanks again.

With FSX I can't start it. With Ctrl+E start Master and avionics only.

Isaacjohn8Sat, 09 Nov 2013 18:35:12 GMT

Brilliant! Can't believe it's this GOOD! 5 stars for sure!

LynceThu, 22 Aug 2013 17:17:58 GMT

Great. May have a problem with sound on the outside view (fly-by plane) because it sound like when you star engine several times, and on, and on... ... but the textures are amazing; always fun fly a Huey ;) Great job!

My favorite heli download so far due to ease of install and no problems with VC. Very cool addition of gunners and co-pilot. Good job.
