Hey does anyone know a way to make a heli slide on the grass in phoenix like it would in real life? In other words, can I change the simulation variables for the grass somehow, make it not catch the skids as much?

Is it really possible to skid slide on grass in real life?

You can skid slide on the runways in Phoenix.

You can go into Model/Edit/landing gear and lower the forward and side to side skid friction.
It still tips over if you try a skid on grass, which is fine with me because that's what always happens to me in real life

PS
If you set the friction to 0 the heli will slide off sideways at spool up

Hey thanks for the help, I'll give it a shot.

I do real long grass sliding tail-in and nose-in autos with my 90's ...

umm...no you can't. not at all if you come by and even just barely touch the pavement the heli flips. this is just one of my issues with phoenix. the main one is the huge lag.
