The very successful Pathfinder helicopter has now been upgraded to the mesh Pathfinder II New Generation. Out today, with demo to try first as usual. If you own a Pathfinder (still prims & sculpties) contact me for a free upgrade. You will be spoiled!What's in this 2017 upgrade?
LOTS. This is a more than a simple upgrade for flight script with auto-pilot but a complete mesh rebuild of the Pathfinder that was previously only prims and sculpties. Not a part is left of original, apart from main rotor and flight sticks. All the rest has been redone in mesh. Not prim-o-mesh (IW export to Collada) but original mesh made in 3d tool.

Remark on floats.
Also redone they can still be switched invisible by chat command. New sledge will then be exposed.
When taking off from water apply some forward impulse (forward arrow) while you press page up at same time to gain enough speed to counter water resistance (scripted) and take off.
Pathfinder is boxed with floats out.
Original Pathfinder has been taken out from vendor and sent to recycling.
For those who bought original Pathfinder, rezz both old and new side by side and see the differences:-)
The Heli Taxi and the Mash heli mesh updates will follow asap.
