When I attempt to fly the default bell helicopter after I start up the engine, its sounds as if the throttle goes higher and lower repeatedly even with no collective input. When I try to give it collective i have to barely give it any before I get a warning (becasue throttle doesnt increase), however I am able to just barely get it off the ground. When flying and in hover it seems as the throttle does not change according to the collective and just sort of goes in and out at random regardless of collective position. Is there anyway to make sure the autothrottle is mixed with collective or is there a setting I am missing? I have tried to use my fuel mixture to increase or decrease the throttle but with governor on or off it seems as if the auto throttle has a mind of its own or is not functioning at all.
I'm not very familiar with helicopters so I do not know the correct behavior. If you believe there may be a bug you can file a report here with as much information as possible.
