Harrier VTOL control / InterLink

hobiewan, the Harrier's VTOL mode really takes full advantage of the InterLink controller's knob. Besides allowing you to select either vertical "hovering" mode or standard forward flight mode, it will allow you to choose any point in between, constituting a mix of the two. That is, you can use the knob to select, say, 75% vertical thrust and 25% forward thrust.

Users with the gameport controller will not be left out, though. At a bare minimum, they will be able to use a toggle switch to go between the two modes, so they can still fly the Harrier. And if so desired, users can approximate the knob's functionality by mapping keys on the keyboard to specific percentages of servo travel, simulating the various knob positions.

I hope that answers your question. I think you guys will really enjoy the Harrier. Having flown it (are you jealous? ), I can say that it's very cool!

Cool beans. I'll need to upgrade to the USB system here in the near future. I'll look foward to the Harrier. I've had the opportunity to watch the bird fly and I'll definitely enjoy vectoring the thrusts. I can't wait. Enjoy the thrill of being inverted and vectoring the thrust to 45-90degrees perp. and ZOOMING straight down. The Brits have perfected and passed along the unique abilities of the VTOL system.
Enjoy. I Know I Will.

I think the Brits call it "Vffing" when they do unusual manuveours(sic) with their Harriers. Should be fun to try. I have enough trouble hovering with a trainer heli.

Hooray Hooray its an Albatros D.V

Sorry Omita, it looks like its a lovely biplane after all, not an HU-16. More info over at Tower Hobbies, but it appears to have slipped to "Mid-Oct".
