ArmA 2 Rules - Nothing else comes close!

I create a helicopter unit and give it several waypoints. I would fight on desperately waiting for the helicopter to arrive... and it never showed up. I put myself "incargo" and flew along to see what was happening...The helicopter reaches a waypoint stops and just spins around.  Why?  How can I make it continue on to the next waypoint. They are all "move" waypoints.
Thanks in advance...DOA

You want to talk about it, yes?

Did you have her fly above 100 meters using the flyinheight command? I have a faint image that when a chopper is flying over 100 meters it can "miss" it's waypoint and start spinning around it.

Thank you Artak. You are 100% correct. I was using a height of 200 meters because some of my jumpers were getting killed by the short fall to the ground. Now that you remind me, I too remember that somewhere I have read about helicopters missing waypoints if too high.  I lowered the bird to 120 and the jumpers survive and the helicopter makes all it's waypoints. I visited your website and downloaded all the addons and missions there, they are great. Thanks again...DOA
