Real Flight Announces RF8 and New Version RF-X Flight Simulators
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.Part 107.
The only ZERO flight hour certificate in the world.
It's like getting a driver's license without the driver's test.

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.Part 107.

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.

I bought the RF8 software only - RF did end up offering us a $20 off Hobbico merchandise for owners of RF7 and RF-X for what that's worth.

RF 8 claims to support goggles like the Occulus Rift - that seems like big plus (I think). I will be interested in the 7.5-to-8 upgrade."The helicopter is much easier to design than the aeroplane, but is worthless when done. W. Wright"

Yeah, they give us a reach around for those of us that dropped $200 two years ago. Thanks RF!

Get with the program
Quite a majority of pilots own Macs. It would a great benefit for those that do, to have a Mac version too.

Mac owners won't have to go through other programs, like Bootcamp into Windows, to run it.

They should also spend a little more time getting to know their clientele, understanding our needs and try to benefit us instead of telling us.

After the grief they took over creating a pig like RF-X if there was an actual majority of pilots using a Mac, KE would have tapped that market a long time ago.
