Vehicle Training Wheelsby
An improved script to add to your player character's initialisation in the editor mode, to make learning to pilot vehicles (particularly helicopters (particularly landing)) a little easier.
It won't make the job of piloting any easier, but it will make your player character invincible (crash and explode without dying!), and your vehicle will bounce back to full health immediately after sustaining all but the heaviest of damage (instant full damage cannot be repaired).
So, you can practice landing helicopters without the worry of damage or death hampering your progress.
If you should nose dive into a tree and explode, you'll walk away. If you do completely destroy your vehicle, you are then able to select an option in the action menu to simply spawn a fresh vehicle, and off you go (again). No more restarting the editor!
Damage that doesn't completely destroy the vehicle will be reported to you as an on-screen hint, allowing you to evaluate what you did wrong and how badly.
Designed for private use in the Arma 3 Editor.
Simply create a player character and paste the script code into the player character's initialization field.
Save the "mission" for frequent use, and the init code will not require pasting again.
Everything is pretty well covered by the ReadMe.

My warmest thanks to Foxhound of Armaholic for taking the time to talk with me about my silly little script and encouraging my effort to contribute :-)
And great thanks to everyone who has so far contributed to the BIStudio Wiki, without which learning this language would be even more of a challenge.
