During some experimenting, I switched the Chinhook for a Merlin and noted that my units do not board the helo when told to as they did in the Chinhook, I have the get in waypoint synced to the load waypoint, and a Chinhook will hover at a low enough height for units to board, but the Merlin does not.

Also, (after I artificially forced the Merlin to land so I could load my units) at the other end when unloading, the Merlin hovers just a little too high for injury-free unloading. We all got out and we were all injured from the high jump.

Added a simple editor repo: when helo arrives, order your men onto it. If repo is successful they will move to an initial boarding position then simply stand about. If you place a helo pad down, the helo lands and the troops will board successfully.
