It looks as if they may have added 2-3 more graphics just to justify charging another $200-500 for it and all of the add-ons. I'm I'll pass. It is a little too little too late. It seems from the pictures that they felt that they had to hurry up and come up with something to lessen the blow from lost sales to Reflex. You can tell from the pics there was very little planning for improvement. This effort, IMO, appears to be more out the spirit of panick, instead of the steadfast, on-going spirit to improve your software and blow the competition away. On the picture in the tower magazine catalog, the graphics still appear to be too cartoonish.

Great Planes, I'm sorry, but your company will no longer benefit from my funds after the money G2 recently drained out of me. I'll stick with my Reflex XTR, and good luck selling your G3, because judging from that lack of effort, you all will need it that luck to sell it.

I don't see the problem here. . .

You may want to check that link again. I'm seeing the new version WITH TWO add-ons for $250. When you factor in their perpetual discount, we're talking $225 or so.

Add to that the fact that Reflex is only slightly better than G2, if G3 is a big improvement, then Reflex (without controller and without multiplay) should be the one to worry!

All they need to do now is give G2 owners a break (upgrade path). I'll be pissed if they don't do that.

I haven't seen G3 in person so I don't know but I own G2 and tried Reflex and I'm wondering what the hype is all about. You can buy G2 right now for $135 . . . that's got to be the best sim value out there right now!

Caught a post at RCGroups in which the poster said he'd spoken with a RealFlight representative and they are not planning to offer an upgrade from G2 to G3. All they are offering is a $50 discount if you send in your G2 registration, or something to that effect.

Here's the post:

That wouldn't be bad if my G2 controller will work on G3 AND they sell G3 without a controller.

But I'm sure they'll screw this up somehow!!! I think I'll just sell my G2 for as much as I can get and buy the new one. I'll make my own upgrade path!!

Glenn, I believe that RCGroups' post also has in there somewhere that G2 controllers will not work with G3.

I think we need to see some proper screenshots or a demo to be able to say for definate whether it's worth the money or not.

if those are screenshots on the left of that page then i'll stick with AFP. it looks the same if those are the screen shots and AFP flies better than G2 ever could.

i've also read a few times there is no upgrade path.

roll on a new AFP sim.


cheers

I just bought AFP about 4 weeks ago. And I am very happy with it
$ 124.95

Upgrades FREE
Add-ons / expansion pack FREE
Lots of models FREE
Lots of Scenery FREE
Helis Fly very realistic after a little tweeking
and mine runs 100 to 150 fps on a $ 50.00 graphics card

G2 or G3 ?? " I made the right decision "

Here is a pic from the magazine.
It is a 3mb file so please be patient.

The sim and all of the models $500. WOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Without heli stuff yet.

They felt that all of the sudden they need to come up with something else since Reflex XTR started Kickin' dat A--. Like I said before, too little too late.

In reading the description it looks like they tried to cross G2 with Microsoft Flight Simulator. Why would I want to fly anywhere within 5000sq miles? I cant see that far!

Okay, this one is the real deal-breaker for me...

Go here: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...?&I=LXHXV6&P=ML and scroll to the BOTTOM of the comments, and you'll see this line:

"COMMENTS: Helicopter functions available by free upgrade in Spring 2005."

No helis? thanks but NO THANKS!

Not that I woild buy it but tower has g3 for 199.98 or 339.99 with all 5 addons. No minimum system requirements listed yet. When I break down and upgrade my computer I will most likely try reflex.

no way

it just look the same to me even if there was an upgrade for g2 owners to g3 i will still have to think about it i think its not worth the upgrade
the graphics kinda look the same i think that if they were to come up with nices graphics ala reflex or even better it would won my vote
all im saying is same thing just a few stuff added to the program
its just my opinion
