Real Sim???? Are you guys nuts. This is the worst flying sim I have ever flown almost. This is NOTHING like 2.0. Looks identical, but the physics are all messed up. The heli darts every time you give it cyclic and pitch and tail have no effect on rotor RPM.

How do you roll this back to 2.0N. This is horrendous. It loads my computer to death to as well. I only get 30 FPS and I got a locked 68 FPS with V Sync on before and with V Sync off I got over 360 FPS!!!! This beta is horrible. This is a brand new machine that could run 2.00N at the highest setting on everything and get over 360FPS with ease.

The planes fly even worse. They are 100 percent unrealistic. On take off they accelerate to full throttle almost instantly. Horrible.

I am running a iMac with Fusion as well and it runs it fine, but... the sim SURE lacks something to be desired.

calm down Futura SE

it works quite well with my ThinkPad T61

i got 60 fps with medium settings and i'm happy with that

2.5 improved so much on physics, collective response makes me much more happier with tic-tocs than before

Anyone who thinks 2.5 flies like a real model needs to go fly just that a real model.

I've emailed Phoenix about that. Some of the models are unrealistically fast and over responsive. Defying laws of physics.

It's like the guys who set these models up set them up for how they WISH it would fly. Some models feel excessively light and excessively over powered.

For the record, it's entirely possible to fly under the arch at Lagos rocks.

I'm posting this just to let everyone know I'm the first to do it.

Ive got it aswell.

Not shure yet, havent got to much time on it, but first impression is not all good.

I agree, the dynamics seem off in some way. The helis feel too light and overpowered. I wish my 600 flew like that.

The program runs ok on my laptop, 2,0Ghz intel core duo, 2gb of memory, GeForce 8600M graphics adapet, running Win 7RC.

One thing ive noticed is that i dont get flaps or wheel brakes to work when flying fixed wing. ( guilty )

so far I think it is better than v2. The blade sounds are not great though and the logo500 motor is just too loud..its like a friggin turbine even at the far end of the field I would like to hear better effects for sudden pitch changes or hard stops on piros (more bark).

Also the hang time on autos is way too long especially on the logo500 and protos (two machines I have owned so can't comment on the others)

Don't get me wrong I think it is a big improvement.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

They said the piro sounds would come with a later update, I do hope so along with the pitch sounds etc.
