Landing your helicopter
The most basic landing tachnique in a helicopter involves slowing from forward flight by "flaring" - descending to a hover and then landing straight down from about 20 feet.
The diagram below shows you the positions of the
JOYSTICK - IN GREEN and the COLLECTIVE - IN RED.
This assumes that you have a throttle control and you have set the sim options to operate it helo-style - i.e. max power in the back or up position and idle forward or down.
Don't forget to lower the landing gear.
