as a matter of fact it does seem that european helicopters behave
differently from american ones.

Yes, you are right, sorry. I was slightly pissed, because if felt as if you needlessly dragged my country into the matter, only because we didn't agree on technical ground, as if you wanted to say that Austrians (unlike US citizens) do probably not understand much of helicopters. :-)

i am not a us citizen and never will (even though i live in the us
now) :-)

i thought the same might apply to the collective.

OK. It doesn't, as others have meanwhile explained.

Anyway: I wasn't aware how difficult the bo is actually to fly with
just the keyboard. Accidently, I installed fgfs today on a computer
at a Red Cross office (for the people on duty to make time pass
faster), and it took me *quite* a while to even lift of. (We don't
have a js there ... yet.)

I'll try to submit a fix tomorrow. I insist on the throttle being
inverted on the js, but the keyboard is a different matter. There'll
certainly be a viable solution.

how about we just reverse the PageUp and PageDown keys (and also add
the 1 and 2 key bindings) and get the helicopter to start with the
throttle at 100% so it doesn't just take off on you when you start the
rotor. this way nothing will change for the joystick users, and for
those of us who use the keyboard the bindings will make more sense (up
will make the helicopter go up and down will make it go down). what do
you say?

Sorry again :-]

don't worry, it happens.


You know you can change your own keyboard settings however you like to override the default ones that come with fg, right? Just make your own ~/.fgfs/keyboard.xml file and put whatever changes you want in there. The pull:up/push:down convention on joysticks is pretty univesal, and the keyboard binding follow that. I don't think anyone would ever agree to change it in the defaults, but you're completely free to make permanent changes to your own setup.
