The HC2 model shows up sunken into the ground. The belly sits on the floor and you can't see the wheels. The HC3 model is perfect however! Not tested the CH47D models.
I tried copying the contact points in aircraft.cfg from the HC3 and it made no difference.

Yes, I have the same. Also the rotors don't turn. The one RAF CH47D model I've tried was invisible (ZD576). P3Dv4.4.

And... sorted by a quick play with the original FS9 models and the latest MCX.

Fixed HC2 P3D model

Post by gavinc » 15 Jul 2019, 22:00

Hi Folks,
Sorry about this, not sure how the corrupt HC2 model got thru our rigid quality control. I guess I will be dragged off to the dungeon for another spell on bread and water.

The fixed model is attached here until Greg and Martin find the time to fix the uploaded packages and Matrix.

What model is ZD576 calling? I don't see that serial number in the UK Chinooks

Ah, I’ll have a look in the morning, Gavin. It’s quite possible it’s from an earlier package.

Well, this is a bit bizarre. ZD576 doesn't exist on my system. Indeed, it's the 7 Sqn HC2 that crashed on the Mull of Kintyre in 1994, so it's kind of unlikely it's ever been included in any MAIW package. I can't find a traffic file that calls it - though I have hundreds, so that could be a long search! I can only think that I've mistyped a registration into a traffic file when allocating an aircraft. However, the aircraft (whatever its real reg) associated with that file must exist otherwise it wouldn't appear in the traffic list in the sim, and there is an issue with that model's textures.

I don't think, however, that this is a problem with this package, so I'll leave the topic there. If it comes up again, I'll do a bit more investigation within the sim to see what's going on!

Yes, but you don't need to any more as the replacement models have been provided above!

Just as long as you're permitted to take the PC with to the dungeon so you can continue the great work. Thanks Gavin
