Yes, now you will be able to get new versions and not dump a lot of coin on a super dragon fire breathing computer and graphics card.

They seem to be going for two levels of gamer. It once again is possible to design planes for RF-8.

Go on over and see the announcements.

I'm not buying anymore RF stuff until they prove this release doesn't suck like the last release did. RF-X is such a load of crap. It's just not the hardware requirements but the fact that the interface is junk.

I never said Interlink, it's the software interface and method of operation that's junk compared to RF7.5. RF-X was too much like a video game or children's game to be a useful sim IMHO. The RF-X hardware requirement is a joke as well. Making all of the training recordings unusable wasn't copacetic either.

I asked if RF would allow us to upgrade from RFX to RF8 on Tower's facebook post - answer = nope. They are offering an upgrade from RF7.5 though. I'm a bit pissed about RFX, sits in a drawer as unusable $200 spent and now no option to "fix" it, but I can repurchase. The last RF I bought was RF3 which worked well for me (and still does too) - rant over.

They have announced that an upgrade to RF-X will be available, some time after RF-8 has shipped.

It looks like there will be a high end version and a lower range version for less powerful computers.

I don’t see the problem with the interface. Just different.
