After several months of working on this, we’ve gotten our Blue Thunder to a point where we’re happy to share it.

I remember being awed by the helicopter growing up, along with Airwolf so it was next on our list.
This is also the first helicopter mod we’re releasing with the awesome AirlandFS flight model. You can get a copy of it from the R44 but we’ve also included it on our helicopter site along with some initial profiles for all 3 of our current helicopters (Airwolf, MH6 and now Blue Thunder.
You will need to download “AirlandFS.zip” and extract it somewhere (I keep mine in the Community folder for convenience).
We also have added AirlandFS versions of MH6 and Blue Thunder.
You will need to launch the game, spawn the helicopter of your choice in the game, then run the AirlandFS.exe app to get the flight model demonstrated in video below:
We also had some fun animating the gun to match the flight stick movement (no firing)
