# toggles pitch mode. when engaged, pitch follows player view and W/A control throttle
# also briefly displays world coordinates and altitude (in blocks)
# exits the helicopter 1.9 blocks to the left - use with caution while flying!
# quickly returns pitch to zero - useful with full throttle to avoid crash
# when look-pitch is engaged (see above), resets zero pitch to current view
# allow helicopter to naturally return to zero pitch automatically
# returns throttle to zero when not actively ascending or descending
# if you disable, your rotor speed will indicate the current throttle (very touchy at the moment)
# include a moving rotor with the model
# rotor speed varies with throttle - the visual effect is highly
# dependent upon framerate, so experiment to find a pleasant result
# or disable if all else fails
# set rotors relative speed
# hold for rear view
# create map for current area
# keep helicopter at current altitude, press again to unlock
# switch to hud/camera mode where model is hidden
Welcome to the Minecraft mod_thx Helicopter project! If you are still reading then we will assume you are a modder or would like to become one. Here's what you need to develop, build, test, and play:
Thanks to vip3r for the improved helicopter skin.
Thanks to dannyoboy007 for managing the forum topic and recruiting.
Thanks to all forum participants.
Special thanks to the Forge, ModLoader, ModLoaderMP, and MCP projects, without which this project would not be possible!
And of course, thanks to Notch and the Mojang team for the pure goodness that is Minecraft.

I look forward to trying this out once it is done. Be great for those who want a better way of getting arund as opposed to the planes which clearly need runways and such to land and take off. I've seen some large mountains that would mak egreat places for a castle or something. Was just too lazy to get up to them lol.
OMG!!! a helicopter tried to attack me
is that supposed to happen or is it a bug?
this is what i did
i used tmi and placed a lot on the same spot and went in one and i went up and shot ate the ones on the floor and then two helicopters flown up and copied what i did so i went to fly around and it was fun cuase they even fshot when i did and it was soo cool the i hit one by accident with a bullet and then thats when it started to attack me....
Edit: i tried it again and now im having a battle with two other helicopters fighting me and its fun.i used like 20 and then went in one and shot at them with bullets and then they flew up after a few shots
