Having had the pleasure of using the brilliant GMax Hughes 500 LA Sheriff Helicopter, I decided to create this little review of it so that others can see just how much fun it can be to fly around in. With helicopters I can find that they are a little limited compared to what I am used to, but one of the most interesting aspects of this mod was that it felt every bit as enjoyable as using what you would traditionally think of as something a bit rangier in terms of its performance.
When I downloaded this mod I soon found that it felt rather unique and charming, at least in line with the various helicopters that I have tried out recently. Not only did it feel exceptionally fun to mess around with but it felt really enjoyable to try and learn thanks to the little nuances in performance that it brought to the table.
Given that this aircraft was sold to me with a massive reputation – one of the most popular light turbine helicopters on the planet, apparently – I was expecting something easy to fly and exceptionally functional. I have to say that I quickly got this feeling when using this; it felt very easy to control and put under my “spell” but it also gave me enough changes in terms of the power that it has to help me feel at home when I’m more used to the energy of a typical plane instead.
The people who worked on this model, particularly Bjorn Buchner who made the original model, have done an exceptional job on bringing the whole thing together. The repaint and new sound additions were handled by Batki Zoltan, who done a wonderful effort to make this look absolutely awesome. The photorealistic and realistic textures on the helicopter all look authentic and make it easy to fall in line with, offering something new and exciting which is very much a major instrument to enjoy being a part of.
The entire aircraft design was hugely well handled but the design was made better by the new sounds included. These boom out of the aircraft as you fly, making it sound better than ever whilst giving you an awesome digital cabin sound. Something else that made it really impressive for me, though, was the introduction of a host of minor features instead.
It’s these smaller features that help to sell the whole package, from tiny details on the aircrafts design to the quality of the reflections which you will spot in the textures. It’s these little things that make such a staggering difference to helping you enjoy something which is exceptionally impressive.
Whether you’ve used one of these before or just want to see what all the fuss is about, I happily recommend that you come and try this mod out. Many helicopter mods are not really my cup of tea, but this was just right!
