The Bell UH-1 is without a doubt one of the best known helicopters to most people. It was imprinted in our culture by the moving images from the Vietnam War were it changed the face of warfare. And it never left as thousands are still flying in every corner of the world.

Fifty years after it first flew it is still in production and that’s something no other helicopter can claim. The characteristic sound of the two-bladed rotor can be heard over jungles and city centers. Even though it has only one engine it is very reliable and rugged. A workhorse that’s not afraid to get dirty and will fly just as happy with a few pounds more than the manual states it can carry.  It’s loved by the pilots and the crew that maintain the old airframes. It’s the Huey.

Features:

  • Includes military UH-1H (or German UH-1D) and civilian Bell 205 A-1 models
  • Highly accurate flight model (using a separate module to correct the limited helicopter flight model of FSX). Please note that vortex ring state (VRS) is NOT included because the Huey does not suffer from this dangerous condition.
    • Torque induced yaw added
    • Stabilized rotor head simulation added
    • Control travels in hover and cruise flight corrected
    • Tail rotor effectiveness corrected
    • Retreating blade stall added
    • Control effectiveness depending on hydraulics pressure added
  • Highly detailed systems making a realistic (within FSX limitation) use of all checklists possible
  • Immersive sound set with many additional sound module for virtual cockpit sounds
  • Very detailed external model with many animations
  • Fully useable and detailed (±250.000 polygons) virtual cockpit
  • All 3D gauges with custom programming
  • Extensive manual (checklists available in format for smartphones)
  • Easy select of “Cold and dark” and “Ready to go” mode
  • Innovative lighting systems (including steerable searchlight)
  • Created with the help of German Bundeswehr pilots

This is the real deal. The Aerosoft Huey is an extremely well modelled helicopter and is very enjoyable to fly. The cockpit looks like the real thing and exterior views are spot on. The flight model is perfect and the Huey behaves exactly as one would expect. It is an easy and predictable helicopter to fly but one has to be mindful of things like torque yaw. The sounds are great with the typical Huey thump and I am so glad that Aerosoft used variable pitch sound inside the cockpit, unlike many other helicopter simulations where engine sound inside the cockpit is just one flat monotonous engine tone. Everything here feels real and believable. A well-deserved 5 stars.

O.k., der "Huey X" gehört sicher noch immer zu dem Besten was man für den FSX bekommen kann, aber der deutsche Support lässt doch etwas zu wünschen übrig.

Ich hatte anfangs, was die Steuerung betrifft, absolut keine Probleme mit diesem Heli, aber nachdem ich mir einen anderen Controller zugelegt hatte war dieser Huey einfach nicht mehr steuerbar.
Grund dafür ist die extra programmierte Steuerung für den Huey X, die diesen Heli halt gegenüber des z.B. FSX Standard JetRanger III realistischer im Flugverhalten machet.
Die Programmierung erkennt aber wohl irgendwie nicht in "jedem" Fall die Einstellungen die man in seinem FSX für die Steuerbefehle festgelegt hat.

Wenn man nun im deutschen Aerosoft Forum versucht eine Lösung für dieses Problem zu finden, dann wird dort mehr in alle Richtungen gerätselt als sinnvoll geholfen, als würden sie, wie mir scheint, ihr eigenes Produkt nicht richtig kennen.
Außerdem heißt es dort des Öfteren einfach nur: Dieses Problem haben ja nur ganz wenige, quasi nur ca. 5% der gesamten Huey X Nutzer...
O.k., das glaube ich Aerosoft zwar, denn weder der Airbus X Extended, noch andere Add-On-Flieger die ich nutze haben irgendwelche Schwierigkeiten mit meinem neuen Controller oder den Einstellungen für die Steuerung die ich für diesen im FSX vorgenommen habe.

Im englischen Aerosoft Forum hatte jemand Namens Finn versprochen sich der Sache mal anzunehmen.., gesagt, getan.

Seine gefundene Lösung ist gut und relativ simpel:
In der Panel.cfg des Huey X kann man unter [Vcockpit01] den letzten Eintrag deaktivieren und darunter einen weiteren hinzufügen.
Der "neue" Eintrag bewirkt, das der Huey X sich nun eher wie ein Standard FSX Helicopter fliegt, da seine spezielle Programmierung halt umgangen wird.

Das Ganze sieht dann so aus, wobei sich halt nur die letzten beiden Einträge von den Originaleinträgen unterscheiden:
[Vcockpit01]
Background_color=0, 0, 0
size_mm=256, 256
visible=1
pixel_size=256, 256
texture=$Hueypan
gauge00=UH1_systems!Misc, 0, 0, 1, 1
gauge01=UH1_systems!Anim, 0, 0, 1, 1
gauge02=UH1_systems!Xponder1, 0, 4, 135, 50
gauge03=UH1_systems!Xponder2, 0, 63, 135, 50
gauge04=UH1_systems!EVI, 0, 145, 142, 92
gauge05=ASC!MAIN, 0, 0, 10, 10, 0
//gauge06=HueyFCA!Main, 0, 0, 1, 1
gauge06=FCTRL_BYPASS!FCTRL_BYPASS, 0, 0, 1, 1

Der Huey fliegt sich zwar jetzt einfacher als von den Entwicklern vorgesehen, also weniger realistisch, aber das ist mir immer noch lieber als wenn ich ihn gar nicht mehr nutzen kann.

Wie gesagt.., dieses Problem haben wohl nur ganz wenige mit dem Huey X und bei mir ist es halt auch nur seit meinem neuen Controller aufgetreten.

hi, man kann die soundfile allerdings durch eine andere huey soundfile ersetzen - das gilt auch für alle flugzeuge. in simobjects in fsx sind die flugzeuge zu finden dort den typ anklicken und es gibt dort 4 files sound, panel, texture, etc. hier kann die sound file erstzt werden. es gibt payware soundfiles und freeware unter avsim.com oder auch surclaro.com

Einer der besten Hubschrauber für den FSX überhaupt. Und für Freunde des UH-1D ein absolutes Muss.

Schöne Grafik, gut gemachtes Virtuelles Cockpit, nur der Sound könnte ein klein wenig besser sein.

that's a good one!

-perfect flight model
-very good VC
-good panel handling and start procedere
-night and day inside/outside textures nice
-the typical Huey sound can be better
-rotor animation is a little pit freaky when the FPS are low.

I`m glad to bought it.

As Randy Jackson of American Idol often says, "It just didn't work for me, I didn't get it". Lots of attractive buttons and switches that aren't functional. Small gauges are hard to see on my 20" ACER monitor. I Have to zoom-in a lot. Zooming in on gauges, they are photo real, nice. I've tried Logitech Wingman Extreme and Extreme 3D Pro, both joysticks require too much arm force to hold Helli straight and level. Uncomfortable, and I haven't found a fix. Flies just like FSX stock chopper. Just fancier eye candy. So; 'I just don't get it'.
