  Didn't noticed any topics about this item, so I wanted to share what I think about it. I picked up this new active item today, and I gotta' say it's pretty awesome. If anyone wishes to check this item out for yourself, feel free to send me a friend request and I'll let'cha fly around one of my spaces.

 

Just thought I'd share some details about this item if others have been wondering. Pressing [L2] will completely mute the heli sound effects, then click (R3) for the first-person view, there you have a pretty cool flying camera -- which to those with PVR screen captures, could use for machinimas. Flying around in first-person view is actually easy but the screen can be a tad shaky unless you move slowly.

 

The Spotlight feature is nice and helps is dark areas, but it's not super bright. Overall though, works well.

 

Features & Controls:

(L) - Move
[R1] - [L1] Rise/Fall

(R) - Camera Control

(X) - Turn Spotlights On/Off

[Square] - Take a picture

(R3) - Toggle Camera View (Third-person or First-person!)

[L2] - Turn Sound On/Off

 

Item Information:

Friends Play: Yes

Slots Required: 9

Price: $2.49

I'm sure somebody will make a video, but I could share some pictures. Nobody can give a more honest review than youself, so stop by sometime and try it in the club or my estate. :catvery-happy:

That looks awesome! It kind of has the same controls as the dragon fly in Avalon Keep don't you think?

How is this better than the Essence of the 7 Winds item?  

 

Essence is about the same price, uses one less slot, allows for everyone in the space to fly around and take pics... And with a little know how you can even fly around outside the normal barriers of a space.

Sony's PlayStation Home updated mission statement...

- Stand for something better than mediocrity and don't disguise it as adequate, when clearly it is far from that to anyone willing to be objective and unbiased. -
