Description

Obs:
If you turn of autohover for all choopers (but the Ka52), the choppers
is pitching back forth. Even pressing alt is not getting him stable.

This worked nicely in OFP - and works for the Ka52!

Exp:
Instead the chopper should remain stable in the air.

That way you can strafe sideways as seen on this video
working nicely only for the Ka52 (11 MB).

Normally you get the copper turn after a moment (3 MB).

Repro:
  1. editor, ah1y, flying, player as pilot
  2. activate autohover
  3. 4x accel
  4. watch the chopper pitch back and forth
  5. trying press alt to get him stable and see it not work
  6. press left to sidestrafe and see it not work

Try with the Ka52 and see it work very nicely (11 MB).

Sorry I post again but this is the original issue I guess:

I wish that this would be fixed and maybe added some more realism to it, like for example, in real life you can only engage autohover if your allready hovering speed below 2 knots, approx and then if stick is being pulled autohover turns itself off, so basicly turning on autohover from flying 200 km/h is highly unrealistic in real life.
