How would I make a helicopter?

I’m trying to make a helicopter system that is HEAVILY inspired from jailbreak’s helicopter system!
But the thing is, I don’t know how to script all the math involved in order for me to get all the smooth movements like Jailbreak’s. I would like one client script, and one server script in order for this to work.

Anyone got any solutions?


I suppose you could combat gravity either by applying a force equal to the roblox gravity force on the helicopter and players attached or maybe you could make the helicopter and characters temporarily massless when trying to fly. In terms of actually moving the helicopter in different directions there are a lot of ways that you could go about that.


Simply updating the helicopters CFrame seems like a bad idea but definitely do-able. Like caleb said bodyforce’s or something similar might be the way to go.
