I first picked up this package as I found the concept of the police design quite an interesting one to mess around with, so I picked up this file and gave it a bash. What I found was that it was a huge amount to fly around with, and that it gave me a good representation of what the Dauphin AIR-493 is all about. It was a chopper I’d never had the pleasure of using in the past so it was nice to hop into the cockpit and try it out – something fresh and exciting is always a lot of fun.

This was based on the old police model so it was a lot of fun to mess around with the way that it operated, getting to grips with the rather lax nature that it flies with. As I’m used to extremely refined commercial style flights it felt a bit different to me and at first I couldn’t particularly enjoy it; within no time, though, I fully understood where I was.

What I will say about this mod, though, is that the attention to detail in the cockpit is fantastic. I was really impressed by the hard work introduced to each and every aspect of this design, making it easier than ever to buy into and truly have fun being a part of. The cockpit is fairly spacious so I felt like I had plenty of room to maneuver and look around – some cockpits on choppers, for me, are just a bit too small.

This package by Andrew Gilchrist – updated by Timothy Horgan – is worth trying out for sure. It captures that detail that is so important in any package and makes sure that things like the layouts and the moody are exactly the way that they should; equally designed. Nothing here feels out of place or awkward, and this can make a massive difference to the overall growth and fun that you can have when you are using this model. The entire system has been faithfully recreated and with the attention to detail on the model as much as the dynamics, you can get into the cockpit of something that is a lot of fun to fly.

So, in total, I was very impressed with this. Its rapid fast, easy to handle, and did not give me too many teething pains – if you need a solid police vehicle, start with this download.
