With the new SU11 helicopter flight model, operations on elevated platforms suffer from what appears to be a lack of a transition in handling ground effect. This effect seems to be worse for heavier helicopters.
When approaching a platform horizontally, the helicopter will get a huge kick of energy exactly when the RADIO HEIGHT value rapidly decreases, as the center of the model crosses over the threshold of the elevated platform. This "kick" seems much worse for a heavier helicopter, and in ours it is also from the left (as opposed to simply rapidly rising upward). Users don't like this behavior, our pilots are saying this isn't correct and the physics of the rotor disc will have the behavior spread out over time. It's not that the effect is wrong, but the transition case is abrupt which results in behaviors that aren't realistic.
We're wondering if there may be some way to stop this from happening? We have dialed in our flight model now and have it working well but we can't find a solution to this ground effect behavior.
