Campaign legal helicopter with pitch, yaw, power control. Rapid-fire double fireball cannon, 8 missiles, 2x6 Cannon turrets. Easily Reconfigurable
"Huacaya" Attack Helicopter
"Huacaya" is based on my easily reconfigurable "Alpacalypse" helicopter chassis. I am adding an alternative configuration at the bottom to display an example of customizability, as well as a stripped-down version for those who are interested in making a variant. The chassis offers a high level of power, durability, space, in a compact form that fits the build box.
Primary, "Huacaya" Build:
Main gun shoots 2 fireballs at once, with one-click rapid reload.
8 explosive missiles, fired in pairs or all at once.
2x6 Cannon Arrays on 2 axis turrets
How To Use:
([brackets] mean numpad)
(press Z+C at start to toggle some springs)
- Hold  and  at start to takeoff.
- , . [.],  control altitude.
- num: Light lift
- num: Reverse light lift
- num: Heavy lift
- num[.]: Reverse heavy lift
- num+num: Full lift
Use pitch control to tip chopper in the direction of desired travel. Remember you need more power to maintain level altitude when pitched. Use yaw to change direction chopper is facing.
- num: Pitch down
- num; Pitch up
- num: Pitch left
- num: Pitch right
- num: Yaw left
- num: Yaw right
Press and hold L to fire For beginner use, hold L until shuttle stops moving. (For rapid fire, hold L until shuttle reenters barrel, then tap L to slow shuttle to quickly let it come to a rest near rear of gun.) Briefly hold H to reload, Repeat!
In order to make the reloading system gravity independent, a slider is now available to advance the additional rounds. Before reloading first pair of fireballs, press 1. To reload next pair, press 1+2 to toggle off position one, and toggle on position 2. 2+3 for the subsequent pair, etc. until 6+7
Press and hold E,R,T,Y respectively to fire a pair of missiles each. If firing one pair at a time, use the above order. You can also fire all at once.
Cannonballs forwards, spent cannons ejected backwards, don't face either at the helicopter =)
- Left turret: Up, Down, Left, Right arrows to rotate turret. right shift key to fire
- Right turret: [/]. [*] to rotate left/right, [-].[+] to aim up and down. [enter] to fire. (all on numpad)

How to Use:
Right hand uses 4-9 on the numpad to control flight, period and 1 through 3 on numpad for power control. See control section
Left hand uses 3-10, e-o, f-l, v-m for weapons and misc. See control section
**Hold num and num at start to take off, or you will impact ground and explode**
Standard Helicopter Flying, Pitch down towards the direction of desired flight, power controls for up and down. Using max power with missiles still attached occasionally damages missiles.
Weapon Fire Order (Important!):
-Wheels of Fire must drop before bombs, which must drop before ballista use
-Recommend firing missiles in 3-0 order
-Dont drop < and > bombs before n and m
Missiles on 3 to 0, Press and hold respective key (keep holding!). After firing missiles 3, 4, 8, 9 press e, r, i, o respectively to drop de-couplers. (allows use of bottom missiles)
Adjust rear ballast weight in build screen to choose trajectory.
Bombs, four racks, drop: n,m,<,>
Don't drop < and > before n and m respectively, you can release all at once.

The stripped down chassis has the power and space to carry just about any weapon that is build box sized. Example here is just 4 grabbers on the chassis for carrying stuff, and would be a good starting point for anyone wanting to use just the chassis.
