DCS Gazelle for 1.5.7 was already updated

Following the update for DCS 2.0, the DCS Gazelle was now updated for 1.5.7 as well, bringing the so much needed changes in flight dynamics.

DCS Gazelle flight model update

If you are one of those that really love the Gazelle but was frustrated with its flight model, this update might just be the thing for you. As you can see, even the Gazelle is happy and dancing in the fields at the sound of rotors.

This update should fix the flight model and make the Gazelle behave more like... well, an helicopter, actually. A lot of small things really took away the feeling of flying a helicopter. Some people found it uncontrollable -- I personally had some issues, especially in a hover or low speed where I started to induce oscillation due to the poor response of the cyclic -- and some simply complained about things that some of us might not have even noticed.

These complaints came mostly from real pilots so, honestly, there's stuff that most of us didn't even notice until they pointed it out.
