Its good, its bad, its pricey

Posted November 29, 2016 by DJAlanRocks 4 stars

I debated getting this heli for a long time because of its price. I did get one tho and heres the lowdown:

1, Sim crossings are a bear. I have flown around the Blake and the North sea and been frustrated. You get a decent amount of airspeed and at the crossing its nearly stops moving. In the North sea I have crashed SL a few times trying to cross sims. I tried to fly around the Blake with a friend and he kept falling out or crashing. So, theres that. The inability to fly at high speed for any distance is a major flaw IMHO

2. I talked to a guy who owns the Omega helicopters and he says his preferred ride is the Hind. Noone was more surprised than me.

3. You can only fight with this heli in the Omega combat sim, so if you get bounced over the Blake by a madman in a BF109 (like i did) all you can do is give him the finger, its no use running because the sim crossing sucks all your airspeed away.

4. The controls are pretty touchy, give it a little collective and it jumps in the air. Nose down too far and it dives into the ground. At a little over 10 degrees nose down it will settle into a cruise but for the most part the nose wants to be level. This seems to me like a detriment in a combat sim, the inability to pop up slightly over the trees and then back down seems like you would be an easy target.

5. The HUD readouts look like old school analog gauges and it's hard to tell with much precision what your airspeed and altitude are.

6. its very expensive

7. So while i listed the flaws of this helicopter it has a few things going for it-
It looks TOTALLY BADASSED with all those missiles hanging off of it. You can find other twin rotor designs but not a KA-52 Alligator, so in some respects it is unique among helicopters in SL. You dont see these everday and that is really why I got it. Unique and badassed go a long way with me

Not bad, but HEAVILY overpiced for the features offered.

Generally the helicopter is fine, however HEAVILY overpriced, for 5000L$ you do feel a bit scammed as it doesn't really offer anything special, I have to say that after buying it my only desire was to get my money back as I could get MORE features and a kamov helicopter supporting FLIPS for around 3000L$ MAX, with a LOT more features I would say, however instead I tried to enjoy it for what it is, unfortunately the horribly scripted stall feature which literally kicks you down with extreme speeds into the ground is not only limiting and annoying but just plain unrealistic, Kamov helicopters are know for performing flips but offcourse instead they just slapped that horrible "stall" feature and called it ''realism', for 5000L$ I also expected well polished effects but nothing of the sort was offered, the effects are quite plain by SL standards.
In reality its not worth 5000L$ by any stretch of imagination, infact now I will have to spend 3000L$ in addition to get a actually decent and fun helicopter, I would only give this product 1500L$ MAX - no more. I perfectly understand brands and how much some people value their time but due the product being overpriced I am only giving it 3 stars.
Not to mention the fact that there is no GUEST mode which is a traditional features in mostly any vehicle - I assume the seller wants to raise sales that way, but it really ruins it when you can't share the experience with a buddy, the horribly loud beeping sounds which you can't lower, when you're flying a helicopter the main thing you want to hear is the engine, instead in this helicopter the engine is rather quite while the beeping sound effects are high, the manual on the website has a flaw, I have it bookmarked but every-time I open it - it takes me to another page of the website as if someone is trying to push a another product upon me.
To me you guys have a LOOOOT of work to do to earn these 5000L$ in this product, I'm saying this as a content creator in SL.
