Yay! I can implement this feature User-inserted image

The sound movement


Cool mic! Visually appealing to take apart and stick on separately like you said.


Wouldn't this require two microphones to identify the direction?


Not if its already a stereo microphone....:) otherwise you would need to make a custom one


I'm confused by the timeline of this thread! ;-)


I left my helmet at home lumpy lets just say im slow sometimes:) just kidding. Gunner forwarded the link and I commented before I realized the date. Its still a awesome feature though.


LOL yeah this confused me too:D Way to go! You broke my brain


LOL! I need one please
