KA50 v1 KA50 Night SU25T F-15C P-51D MI-8 SU-27 SU-33 UH-1H SA342 MIG-21bis L39ZA F/A-18C beta F-14 KA50 v2 A10C
     

 

UH-1H V2.0 !

 

Here i come with a new UH-1H Helios profile!

We already have a UH-1H Helios profile, we really need a new one?

Well, several reasons made me create this new one:

1- At the moment Helios don't have a UH1H interface, so when i made the first profile in 2016, i was forced to use the old FC interface.
2- For the outputs i used a largue keyboard default file, and then use the key commands to send the switch clicks to DCS. And every time ED made changes on those files, we can have problems.
3- Using the keyboard to send the commands, force to create diferent version of the profile for diferent international keyboards, making the creation of a profile a real pain.
4- After 3 years of changes on DCS, several controls of the profile stop working anymore, so we really need a revision of the entire profile.


Some months ago, i created a new general purpose interface for Helios.
Now i can create profiles using this interface, giving all the functionallity, inputs and outputs, to all the airplanes we need even if they don't got a interface. Whith it i remade the new MI-8 profile, and now is time for the UH-1H.

So i start redesigning all the art for the diferent panels, removing all the keyboards commands, so no more default.lua needed and adding new instruments for the copilot and ram temperature.
I replaced aswell some of the old instruments for others more eficients, using the new controls implemented on the latest versions of Helios.
And finally, i use my new Kneeboard control in Helios editor to create a new NAV panel, a Kneeboard with all the airport charts from all the actual DCS maps! including my Normandy Aerodrome charts v1.0 package.

So.... Here you got it... The new UH-1H V2.0 profile !!

I used the Persian Gulf Kneeboard pages by Pellelil - https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3303320/
I used the Nevada/Arizona Airports diagrams V2.3 - http://www.476vfightergroup.com

In the export files i include a couple of functions by [FSF]Ian to export the digits of the UV26 for the MI-8
