RealFlight Drone version 1.00.033 is now public

We are pleased to announce that version 1.00.033 is now available as a free public release for RealFlight Drone users.

This free update adds new models & features to the existing software as well as including a few fixes. See release notes below for complete details.

The Xiro Xplorer is a sleek quad with advanced GPS-based functionality and optional Intelligent Orientation Control mode. We recreated two variants: the standard model, with gear in the "up" position, and the Xplorer G, with a GoPro-style camera and a true 3-axis gimbal boasting "follow yaw" behavior.

The Tempest 280 is a big brother to the Tempest 250 released in version 1.00.028. It is another homebuilt-style design, with carbon fiber frames, an 'X' arm configuration, and a 20-degree camera angle. Its 4S power system and 600 deg/sec rotation rate make this one is exceedingly quick!

The LauncherHelper will need to restart partway through this process. Answer "Yes" when it asks if you want to continue downloading the new version. When this process is finished, you will have the latest available version of RealFlight Drone.

  • Xiro Xplorer (two variants)
  • Tempest 280
  • 3-axis gimbal (used on Xiro Xplorer G)

  • Support for custom "headless" mode display text in the Flight Modes gadget
  • Selecting the Heli-Max FORM500 in the main Aircraft Selection dialog no longer produces a flickering "Building collision mesh" progress dialog
  • The counterclockwise version of the Small Carbon Fiber prop is no longer rendered upside down

  • Quadcopter: Motor axles are shorter and prop nuts are lower
  • X8 Quadcopter 1260: The four lower props align correctly with their motors
