Stability Coefficients for SimpleObjects

Postby jamarogers » Tue Mar 20, 2012 9:59 am

I am working on a mission that involves a helicopter lift of an object (lifeboat). I tried coefficients from other liftable objects but they don't work with this model. When lifted the boats swings uncontrollably and crashes. I'm using FSX stock model "Veh_Greek_Fishingboat_05_Sm" with hoist point added. Can anyone explain or direct me to a source on the use of:
translational damping
ground rotational damping
ground rotational stability
air translational damping
air rotational damping
air rotational stability
The SDK gives only an example...no explanation.
