I have an amazing Turtle Beach headset that is awesome. It has surround sound in my ears and I use them to watch movies as well I love them so much. Best thing I ever bought.
A couple of my buddies were extremely skilled in both jets and choppers so I could have fun riding along with them. We had a nice squad all with headsets, the same group of people that I will sometimes get on Live with while watching a UFC PPV or some other MMA event. I was lucky, those guys were all much better then me so I got to piggy back and get some kills myself.
Thats cool man. I was OK with the jets. For about 2 minutes I'd be doing OK, then suddenly it would start being all retarded and shit and I'd end up nose diving into my own ship. I was better with helicopters but to be honest, if I wanted to play with planes and helicopters I'd buy a game that specifically specialises in that.
