Video: preview of the ERS Bell 429 for X-Plane

If you're paying attention, you probably already heard that Eagle Rotorcraft Simulations has been working on a Bell 429 for FS9, FSX and X-Plane. They have now released a preview video of the Bell 429 for X-Plane.

Please note: We have been indicating that this project belongs to Eagle Rotorcraft Simulations. It does not. Please read this article with the proper corrections and credits. Thank you.

The nearly-25-minute video shows the ERS B429 not only in flight but also during the shutdown and startup sequences. The startup is impressive to see as, with only a few clicks, the helicopter is pretty much ready to roll. Handy, but Bell seems to be removing part of the fun of flying a helicopter!

Please keep in mind that this is still work n progress, so there's a lot in the video that may and will certainly change. Enjoy!
