In this guide we will be showcasing how to effectively fly Mini copter (Gyro copters) to be able to maneuver around the island of Rust ! Driving around Mini copters takes up a fair bit of fuel so its recommended you do it only when your stuck or in a tight space.

If you wish to turn around use A or D but if you need to dodge or maneuver at an object at high speeds move your mouse left or right The RUST helicopter is a special event that is run automatically on vanilla servers every 2 to 3 hours.

The helicopter can be triggered to run by a RUST administrator or moderator, using the RUST helicopter command. The helicopter is looking to engage players that are armed with weapons, advanced tools, or 3 or more pieces of clothing.

RUST Admins that want to spawn the attack helicopter are often looking to increase the threat level of those wandering the game world. Players who are established and have built special helicopter bases want the chance to take it down.

The first available command will call in a single attack helicopter from a random direction to patrol the game world monuments. The helicopter will fly directly to the location of the admin or moderator player when the command was invoked.

This location will be patrolled for a brief period and when complete, the helicopter will continue on to its random monument flight path. The command can only be run from the in-game console, as it requires the exact coordinates of a player to fly to.

Scrapped together with a handful of pieces, the Mini copters appear to sit on the frame of a rusted boat trailer, with the wheels intact. The tail rudder appears to be made out of sheet metal resembling a stop sign.

Directly behind the captain’s chair is a small red container, with the word “fuel” scribbled in white paint, sitting atop the portable engine. The rear and main rotor blades appear to be made of a thin sheet metal resembling, quite possibly, the only legitimate items to be grafted onto this contraption.

One chair is designed for the pilot, closest to the engine, with a control stick positioned just behind the passenger’s seat. This occurs regardless if it housed properly or not, similar to the rowboat, hot air balloon, and Rib.

Damage done to Mini copters can be repaired using a wooden hammer and metal fragments. When a Mini copter hits 0 health, whether from decay or player damage, it will explode into a ball of flame, covering the ground with fire.

After running the Mini copter through a battery of tests, we’ve determined that it can be damaged by the following: To turn the Mini copter on, simply add low-grade fuel to the gas tank behind the captain’s chair.

It can hold up to 500 low-grade fuel, which can run the Mini copter in the air for a total of 16 minutes and 30 seconds before the engine disengages. There isn’t a mechanism to disengage specifically, but it will shut off automatically if a player exits the captain’s chair by pressing the space bar key.

Note that this RUST admin command does not work from Icon platforms and does require being logged into the game server. The Mini copter can be bought from the helicopter vendor in Bandit Camp for 750 Scrap.

The Mini copter uses 1800 Low Grade Fuel per hour or 30 per minute of flight. To refuel while flying you hold down ALT to Free look and look back at the Fuel Tank.

Since it is notoriously difficult to fly the Mini copter, large groups of players (aka “clans”) should ensure their pilots are well practiced. An unlucky crash at a crucial moment can lead to huge losses.

Though if a crash seems unavoidable, the Mini copter can be jumped out of on the last second, avoiding taking damage altogether. It then flies around and patrols monuments randomly, with the only known and guaranteed waypoint being the Airfield.

If the helicopter sees a player, it will open fire (depending on certain conditions listed below). The Attack Helicopter has two automatic guns (presumably M249s), as well as rockets with the ability to heavily damage buildings.

As of Dev blog 80, the helicopter also has a napalm weapon that rains lingering fire onto the ground, which deters campers and encourages tactical group gameplay. The helicopter only targets players who are wearing two or more pieces of clothing or have a ranged weapon in their hot bar.

As of Dev blog 100, the Attack Helicopter will not target players armed with a Hunting Bow. It is often hazardous to attack the helicopter alone; cooperation in large groups is recommended.

If the helicopter is not destroyed within 15 minutes of its arrival, it will fly back out to sea and disappear. The loot the helicopter yields is similar to airdrops, but in larger quantities with a higher chance for high-quality items.

Note: As of Dev blog 80 the Attack Helicopter will shoot its missiles in a building blocked area. But, the helicopter can still be alerted to your presence, and heavily damage the building with its gunfire.

If you shoot the rotors, a small trail of smoke will begin to emerge from them, which starts at light gray color and gets darker as it takes more damage. After taking sufficient damage, the helicopter will start spinning mid-air, plummet diagonally out of the sky with a fiery trail, and crash.

Smoke plumes and four burning loot crates will lay scattered out in the wreckage. You will be unable to loot any of the crates until the fire ceases, which lasts a few minutes.
