Minecraft 1.2.5 – Helicopter Mod

Helicopter Mod – Ever wanted to roam the skies in Minecraft with precision and style? Then this mod is for you!

Helicopter Mod – What is it?

The Helicopter Mod is a mod for Minecraft that adds, you guessed it, a helicopter in-game. I have to say too, that in my opinion, it’s one of my favorite mods. The helicopter is incredibly easy to control, and the crafting recipe makes it so you can get this helicopter fairly early in the game. The crafting recipe is as follows:

See? It’s not hard to craft the helicopter. However, if you ask me, it’s too easy for what it offers. I mean, this helicopter allows you to roam the land at a fast rate, all without depleting your hunger, has incredible precision and flexibility, unlike Flan’s Plane Mod. Don’t get me wrong now. Flan’s Plane Mod is good, but let’s be honest, it’s resource intensive and doesn’t offer much flexibility, as in you have make very wide turns just to turn around. With this mod, you don’t need coal or to craft missiles to use them, and you can make 360 degree turns or more in the same spot. Now for the controls.

Controls of this Mod

This is fairly easy to control. The controls are as follows:

  • Press “W” to go forward.
  • Press “S” to go backward.
  • Press “A” to strafe left.
  • Press “D” to strafe right.
  • Use the mouse to turn left or right.
  • Press “Space” to ascend.
  • Press “Left Shift” to descend.
  • Press and hold “R” to fire 12 rockets, or “hydra missiles”, in rapid succession.
  • Press “M” to fire a missile, or a “sidewinder”. It takes a while for these to reload.
  • Press “K” to return pitch to zero. This will make the helicopter stop, avoiding a would-be crash.

It may take a bit of time to get used to the controls, but once you have the controls buckled down, using this helicopter will be a piece of cake! Now for some screenshots of the mod.

How to Install this Mod

  • The Steps (Windows)(Old-Fashioned Way)
  • The Steps (Mac)(Old-Fashioned Way)
  • The Steps for Forge and Modloader Mods (Old)
So you want to install a mod for Minecraft? Well, thanks to this guide, it’s easy as 1-2-3! Before we start however, here are some precautions you might want to read:

  1. Be sure to get WinRAR or 7-zip. It’s a necessity for installing mods.
  2. Be sure to backup your “minecraft.jar” before doing anything! We don’t want you to have to force update now, do we?
  3. Be sure to delete META-INF inside “minecraft.jar”.
  4. Be sure to install the mods listed in the yellow box below first. They are usually mods required for the mod you want to install to work.
  5. The Forge and Modloader installation instructions only apply if the yellow box below states that the mod requires either Modloader of Forge. If the yellow box does not, use the “Old-Fashioned” instructions.
  6. The Forge and Modloader instructions only apply to the mod itself. Any mod in the yellow box below must be installed using the “old-fashioned” instructions.

Minecraft 1.6.4 and 1.6.2 changed the way mods are to be installed now. So much, that it’s best to have a full blown guide page for this, rather than quick instructions. Click the link below for the guide:

If you need any additional support, just comment below, or on the post mentioned above! We will be glad to help out!

Here’s the steps to installing that mod you want, or how to install Forge, Modloader, :

  1. Close Minecraft. This is to ensure that the files will overwrite properly.
  2. Open up Windows Explorer.
  3. In the navigation bar, type “%AppData%”.
  4. Navigate to “Roaming”. (Skip this step if you can’t see a roaming folder.)
  5. Open up a folder called “.minecraft”.
  6. Open up a folder called “bin”.
  7. Right click the file called “minecraft” or “minecraft.jar”.
  8. Select open with.
  9. Open with WinRAR.
  10. Open up the mod. (be sure to extract the mod first.)
  11. If there are no specific instructions included with the mod, it is safe to assume that you drag all the files in.
  12. Be sure to delete META-INF. I can’t stress this enough.

That’s it! Have fun!

So you have a Mac computer? The Mac Operating System has a very different framework compared to its Windows counterpart, so the installation instructions will be different. Here’s a video to help you out:

Hopefully that helped you out! If not, you could post it in the comments, and we will help you!

So you noticed this mod requires Minecraft Forge or Modloader, correct? Installing Forge and Modloader mods are just as easy as installing mods the old-fashioned way! In fact, it’s even easier once you get passed the main part Here’s the steps:

  1. Install Minecraft Forge, Modloader, or any mod dependency listed in the yellow box below using the “Old-Fashioned” installation instructions to the left.
  2. Start Minecraft up. Close Minecraft afterwards.
  3. Navigate to the “.minecraft” folder. Once you open it, you will notice that there is a “mods” folder. If there isn’t a mods folder to be seen, create one.
  4. Place the mod inside the “mods” folder.
  5. Open Minecraft up and have fun!

For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder.  Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!

          The file named “minecraft” is minecraft.jar :)

          Just open it with winRAR and place all the files from modloader and the helicopter mod into it. After that, delete META-INF and you’re all set :)

      Terribly sorry about the massive delay. I was pretty busy with the site. Be sure that you have Modloader and ModloaderMP installed also!

      If you want more detailed support, please open a support ticket with the bar on top. I can even install the mod for you if you want!
