Hi all,

Does anyone have any experience with HTR?

Or the files that used to be on Hovercontrol?

Specifically, Huey, EC145, EC135?

Let us know. If you can do HTR, $$$ are involved.

Thanks.

Snuffy

Snuffy,
On the SOH forums is user "kdfw" who was a regular like myself on HC. I helped with his UH-60 HTR config, but he had a few other models covered. I never had the time to sit down and plug the numbers in.

Fred Narr is the creator of HTR, and Kdfw here has been a key player

According to https://web.archive.org/web/20150325084 ... m_Profiles profiles for they Aerosoft Huey X (Huey_X.zip) and H&S Design EC-135 (EC-135.zip) were uploaded by Nikos Aslanakis (nikaslan on hovercontrol)

https://www.helisimmer.com/downloads/fs ... ealism-1-6 has a download for HTR 1.62 (which is the version I am using), which includes an older profile for the Huey (dynamics_user/bell_uh1.cfg) made by Jorge Roldan with modifications by Fred Naar. Fred Naar posted an updated version (bell_uh1_updated.zip) to hovercontrol.

Maybe this information (especially the names) already help you a bit?

nikaslan is still active on Avsim, I guess you can contact him there: https://www.avsim.com/profile/197678-nikaslan/

Is this version compatible with P3D v4.x ? I use registeried FSUIPC already.

Thanks!

I don’t think it is... we have the source code and an agreement for usage. We’re going to try and compile it for 64but and see if it works.

I think HTR should already work fine with P3Dv4, but I don't have P3Dv4, so I can't try.

kdfw did (with htr 1.5, but I don't know why 1.62 should be different here): https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/5115 ... v15-works/
for those who have been using FredN's HTR external rotorcraft flight dynamics model in fsx or p3dv3, it works with p3dv4 and fsuipc5.

Tested 1.62 SE in P3Dv4.4 and latest FSUIPC. All seems normal with Simconnect messages grading my landings and displayed flight parameters active. I thought a 1.63 was out on the now dead HC pages, but 1.62 proved to be stable.

Good news!

I've never seen a 1.63 version of HTR on HC, helisimmer or elsewhere, and so assume 1.62 is the newest released version.

Been running 1.62 in v4.4 and 4.5 myself, but never done any parameters for it, just used the default profiles that are included.
Wouldn't have a clue where to start tbh.
Definitely works in both of those versions of P3D though, easy enough to recognize when it modifies the flight dynamics of the helis that it works for. Whether those profiles are correct, I've no way of knowing.
