That's interesting. As I said in my post on Flying the OFP Helos, I wasn't sure my Cougar Throttle was doing ANYTHING, though it SEEMED like it might be functioning as a Helicopter style collective some of the time. This was my preferred mode, but I was also looking for reverse collective option just in case it defaulted to jet collective. I couldn't find an in game setting.
Throttle direction aside, could you fly the helos using just stick and throttle or did you (like me) have to resort to the keyboard to get the full dynamics (e.g. landing). No matter what I did with my throttle, I couldn't seem to reduce torque enough to descend, or to reduce speed after diving for the deck and then attempting to level out to a hover.
I havent installed the FFUR mod yet, but using BAS-Complete.
