Took that maiden flight a few hours ago and I'm really impressed!
First thing I did was turn on profi mode. Lifted off from the Downtown Manhattan heliport, briefly danced a bit until my feet woke up and the rest is history. Flew at 500 AGL over the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges, then proceeded northbound over the East River (as I've done many times IRL at 1500' in fixed wing aircraft). After passing Roosevelt Island, I headed over to Central Park, then reversed course for the Empire State Building at 1000', looped around her and came in for a landing on the roof of the Metlife building (formerly the Pan Am building) which used to have a heliport.
Departed and headed south for "The Lady", did a few left orbits then came to a hover at 200AGL and was able to maintain a stable hover for several minutes before sitting her down on Liberty Island. Next I will crank up the winds to add challenge, but so far, I must say...
The R-22 is an absolute dream to fly!!!
One minor critique about the scenery. The bridges are well lit as in real life, however, the heliport is not. This was also the case in X-Plane's third party NYC scenery package (which I modded myself to add helipad lighting). Not sure why proper lighting is overlooked, but this is one of the most important and active heliports in NYC! Please look into adding proper night lighting.
Overall, the R-22 is a blast!
I added the windsock, signage and ALL of the heliport lighting in this video:
