Prices have been dropping for G2, i would imagine that means they are clearing out for G3.

yep, G3 is coming, but horizon's website says that helicopter parameters will not be available until spring or something to that nature.

I heard that heli choices will be limited too.
Do you think that the graphics will beat out Reflex XTR?

And if they do that realistic crash, it will be the first time ever.

Does it have virtual relaity capability. I'm not buying another sim until they come out with "goggles" to wear and look around as you fly.

How about instead of everyone jumping to conclusions that we actually ask Knife Edge what's happening as far as upgradability, heli options and the likes?

Guess what? I have done just that and am waiting on a reply from Knife Edge. Hopefully they will confirm or deny our suspisions and we can all be happy.

I'll post the email when I get it. Of course that's IF they reply.

Can you smell the virtual nitro? If not, I'm not interested.

The G3 should start shipping in a few days but the helicopter capability will be delayed. Hear is a quote:

“Helicopter functions available by free upgrade in Spring 2005”

G3 Visual

Did they do the photo thing like XTR or is it still like the G2 look and feel?

I was at the RCHTA Show in Rosemont/Chicago this weekend also. I did not like the look of the new RealFlight G3. It looked the same to me. I did however like the Reflex being distributed by MRC. The graphics are the best anywhere and you don't have to wait for the helicopter parameters later. But alas anything this graphics intensive will surely eat a lot of memory on your PC. I guess the G3 may be a better bet in the long run.

if the graphics and physics aren't any better then why would anyone upgrade.... maybe is just a marketing ploy to attract new purchases away from XTR

Wingtip. you printed, "i was also told from the shop i used to work at that upon a crash the aircraft actually break into pieces etc, to show the damage.... but was told it had some bugs to get worked out.... this was from the owner who went to the vegas show as a retailer......."
What is the bug? Do the aircraft not reassemble themselves when you press the space bar with this version, or is it something more sinister?

I lost my infamous tag line.
