I had the same problem, but found it rather amusing. Can you hover at just the right altitude to simulate floating? See, its really a test of piloting skills!

I'll mention you all are working on a fix in the post at the blog.

Cheers!

Here's a fix for the float problem. Simply open the aircraft.cfg inside of the "Bell_206B_JetRanger_III_FL" folder and replace the existing contact points with the following:

[contact_points]
point.0=4, 4.83, 4.0, -4.70, 840.0, 0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.5, 2.5, 0.8, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0

RE: Jetranger III Float problem ??
First I want to say thank you and congrats on the 206 III release. Regarding the float problem, I am experiencing just the opposit effect, the copter will not float and sinks like a stone. I did attempt to add the recommended changes to the aircraft cfg. but am rejected as not having access. (The "access" problem is yet another frustration). Will you be providing a fix for the float problems?

Thanks

Hi There,
Has someone missed uploading the new file to http://aussiex.org as I just download it tonight and the file they have sinks like a brick until I did the patch listed above?

No new file was ever submitted, although I will see what we can do about getting it on all the websites it was published on originally.
