UPDATE 19 February:

 

Well I figured with the recent activity a little extra update was due today.
 

  • Not a lot of progress but I did make a discovery in the weight area and are going to try and push the weight out of the <1 range and move it up closer to 5 to see what happens. It should not make a big impact on the space taken up in the backpack/chest rigs but it might have a minor impact. We shall see.
  • Still battling the winds on my test box is a pain in the rear but getting better.
  • One of the guys working on the config is looking at three camera views in EO/thermal; those being front, 45° down and 90° down. This is a new adjustment and we are going to see if it works as he thinks it can. 
  • Now have to find a way to make it where the AI doesn't notice it unless it is flying right at eye level or below. Right now the AI will shoot at the dang thing when it gets close...need to find a way to make it invisible without making it invisible to the player so it can be picked up on return or when it sits down somewhere and is shown on the map.
  • Lastly autonomous does not necessarily return due to the fact that it runs out of juice so fast; need to slow that down enough to make it close to real world.

Small update now...been messing with the flight configs more and more and getting more frustrated by it. I am either too heavy for the flight time I am wanting or too light and the wind when loading up with ACE is blowing the thing backwards almost as soon as it takes off. Still plucking away at the configs so please bear with me as we work on it.

Since you guys are asking for an update....

There has been no change; the flight configs are killing me and I am not sure if it is due to the size of the model or what. I have attempted to work it out using similar functions from the sample helo configs that is available from BI but its not functioning the way I want right now. I have it in game and it looks great but actually being able to use it is a completely different animal. I will try to keep you guys updated more as we move towards the summer time.

Why use helo configs?

Surely a drone config (Darter?) would be more relevant?

Don't think you understood what I wrote. I wrote "I have attempted to work it out using similar functions from the sample helo configs that is available from BI but its not functioning the way I want right now." The functions are the same regardless of whether its a drone or a helo. However; having taken the advice from some guys who have done a ton of config work in the game before I attempted to use those functions and it still did not cure the problem. So its back to working on it from a rotor speed, maxSpeed, friction coefficient and drone weight (setMass) perspective. 

I appreciate the guys who are patiently waiting for this but there is a ton of tiny issues that seem like they pop up in the configs once I get one settled the others pop up. Hopefully none of them keep me from moving ahead.

Well, I was in the early process of creating something similar to this mod before I knew this existed. Guess I don't need to worry about that now '~'
No pressure to get it done Nichols. We can be patient! That model is absolutely amazing btw.
It's all about balancing to get it just right isn't it ^^;  If we can do anything to ease the process don't hesitate to ask.
