How can I increase the expo in the training helicopter (Dominion 3D)?

Jeffpn - I can edit the expo of "standard" helicopters but not the helicopter (and only choice, I think) you are given when you select training. I can select the Dominion 3D copter and edit the expo but it asks for a new name when you try to save the change. So you can never change the expo on the base heli which is used by the training module.
Am I right?

Go ahead and save your edited aircraft under a different name.
When you run the trainer, you can use 'loadaircraft' command from the console.
Here is one of a handful of threads on using the loadaircraft.

I've tried all the suggestions and nothing has worked. But I have made this progress:
I entered into the console command mode via the ~ and typed Help. The loadaircraft command is not listed but loadVehicle is. When not in Trainer mode I can use the the command loadVehicle Bell 222 and it loads properly but in trainer mode that same command throws the message "You are not currently allowed to change your vehicle."

That's a perfect question for tech support. http://www.knifeedge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18502

First - it appears the helicopter is actually loaded with the loadVehicle command but the error message is also displayed.
I called the tech support line. They really couldn't tell me whether the loadaircraft command had changed or not or whether the error message was correct. He did promise to check into the issue and either answer my forum question or call me back. I'll let you all know the outcome.

I tried the load vehicle command and got the error message that you did... the proper aircraft did in fact load and is displayed and ready for use in the training session. Looks like someone either added an error message that should not be there or did not disable the ability to change the heli...
Please KE do not change this feature... please let us continue to load helis that we choose to use.
Oh, and another note.... the Dominion 90 should be easy to fly in the hover sim... if you are having difficulty... you need to keep going and stop moving the sticks as much. Relax... small movements. It is not the heli, it is you... and it takes time.
Have you calibrated your controller???

I have looked into this and filed a case.
