These are the settings that I'm currently using for replay purposes, i.e.
if there's no FDM controlling the bo. Setting "state=2" turns on the sound
loop, the "rpm" settings switch to rotor disc (as opposed to single visible
blades), "rotor-step-deg" animates the rotor disc (angle added ten times
per second). You can easily make the rotor animation more sophisticated for
the replay case. (See $FG_ROOT/Aircraft/bo105/Models/bo105.nas). "shadow=0"
turns off the fuselage shadow, and the other settings do what they pretend
to do. Some of them do only work for the bo105 from today's cvs!

Current TODO list:
 - some more detail (wire cutter, antennas, etc.)
 - texturing outside
 - interior detail (including (co-)pilot, both of which can be made invisible)
 - more custom instruments
 - realistic turbine stuff and startup procedure
