Any pilot that tells you he's never been lost is either lying or he's never been anywhere.

Well.....go ahead and take my money ED.  I took this vid while out on the Ft. Carson range.  I see them once in a while flying over our house.

Against my better judgement, I went ahead and got it :BangHead: Just another shiny object to gather dust in my stable of DCS modules.

I really hope Nicholas Cage does the the "Jester" voiceovers when you jump into the front seat.

Very Cool....And on that note I know there is a lot of interest within the group to fly helos (besides Razor  :Rofl) so maybe we can get together on off squadron nights and play around.

Bluto...Have you played around with CTLD in your missions?  I have a couple of missions that I have done with CTLD but I am no expert by any means.  Maybe another "sandbox" helo server and blow some shit up?   :Popcorn:

I am totally down with that.  Not much scripting here yet but learning. Shoot me some missions and I’ll throw them up for sure. I have been loving the helo’s in the off nights and can sort of fly them now. Lol. Great idea.

If you're not careful, you guys are going to end up with helicopter poo all over you and take it from me, it doesn't wash off easily!!  :Rofl

They always told me if it looks like shit and smells like shit don’t step in it. But I always seem to step in it.  :thumbsup:

Here is the mission I came up with.  It's not just a helo mission so you can fly whatever you want.  I flew it with another squad and it took 3 full squad nights and guys getting on and off during the week to finish.  I added the KA-50 and Mi24s to the mission and when the Apache comes out, I'll add those too.  It is a good one to get used to using CTLD commands, build HAWK sites, build other ground forces and learn how to hover over crates!  And there are even Mi8s for Razor!   :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Bluto...I put the mission in the 20.CSAR folder on Teamspeak.  We can start a thread maybe under Missions to post when we can be in.  You may want to set the mission to pause when there is nobody is flying.

I will get it up there. Soon. I believe it pauses when no clients so should be good. Thanks Ranger!  This will be fun.
