You have got to be kidding...
So far....you've got to be kidding. I have had every RF since 3.0 or 3.5 and have been very happy with them. I am only a hard core heli pilot and use the sim to learn new muscle memory, not play with features.

I drank the Koolaide and ordered Accurc to see if the flight characteristics were really better than RF.

After a couple of hours playing with it and setting it up I just don't get it. It is not even close to RF on ease of use, features, and so far, the "physics" are not as good.

Apparently that is why Accurc is a very small contender for flight sims.

RF is hard to beat.

How soon is 1.6 coming out? Maybe this would change my mind.

I was disappointed by AccuRC as well... I used to be a Phoenix guy, but RealFlight is now the sim I always go back to...Team Mikado, Team Revolectrix, KBDD Team Pilot

V1.6 is definitely better than V1.5. I think that the actual flying physics of Accurc is a little better than RF.

The things that I do not like about Accurc are very few flying sites and heli's (although you can tweak the 700N to fly similar to a G4 nitro), lengthy load times and delays between workshop and flying, power on is required for a Futaba Tx to be used, and Accurc cannot be left loaded in the background in a low state of PC resources use like RF can.

Overall, if I had to have only one flight sim, it would be a tough call because RF is so user friendly, has numerous heli's and flying sites, has an integrated Tx, and can be left loaded in the background.

Either one will work.

I was quite happy with RF 7 until the 7.5 upgrade installed only to learn after the upgrade installed itself that it's not compatible with WinXP. Was planning to get a new machine months ago, but decided to hold off until Win10 was released so no excuses now and will likely get a new machine soon. In the meantime I've just started playing with the neXt simulator which seems okay and appears to be being updated often. For me it's all about flight realism so I'm not really looking for glitzy features in a sim. Looking forward to using RF again.

The new beta is definately much better than it use to be, really enjoy flying it. Realflight 8 is excellent as well.

"You have got to be kidding"
About a week ago a received my copy of Accurc 2.0.5 and I was very disappointed with pretty much everything but the graphics but I just tried 2.0.6 and I can't believe that I'm saying this but it is better then RF 7.5 in some aspects if you haven't tried it yet be ready to be amazed, kudos to the developers this update is massive it completely changed my opinion about this simulator which I had no intention of using after I tried it for a few hours on the previous version I can't wait for version 3.5

seriously if you haven't tried this new 2.0.6 version you are missing out on the best simulator experience period. Real flight has been dethrone and AccuRC is the new king.

My favorite sim for a long time has been nExt sim.
AccuRC is vey nice except the crasy long load times.
If it had an intuitive setup menu like the old free Helisim had and loaded in a reasonable amount of time I would really love it.
Nothing to say on Realflight only tried the demo 3.0 version setup in a Hobbytown USA.
If its fixed don't break it.
