Which is annoying as they charged 9.99 for preorders to ship.

thats why you should never pre order any software. Pre order is for the benefit of the seller, not the buyer.

They had a $10 off coupon for items $99 and up a while back that offset the shipping cost. I used that and a credit from my RF-X order they refunded.

I check and my order says: Invoiced - Processing in Warehouse. So I should be getting it soon.

I just got an email from Tower Hobbies saying RealFlight 8 was in-stock so I clicked on the link to read what the page said. I may have overlooked it before but I like the marketing information for RF-8, it clearly says it will fly on the computer you're running RF 7.5 on with the added Aircraft and Drones and VR too. So it will be easy for people to know what RF-8 is.. so that's good for them. KE, congrats on a nice new product it has the technoid seal of approval. (ha.. whatever that's worth)

I gotta say it once more. KE and Hobbico heard the pleas and backed up a bit and gave us a very nice upgrade to RF 7.5... so Good-O.

I just called them and they refunded shipping charge. They offered a store credit but I told them I preferred a refund, and they did it with no proplem.

It will be interesting to see if we can just copy all of our imported content over to the RF8 folders from the RF7 ones. I'd hate to have to import it one at a time again. I've been able to do it with RF7 just putting the proper files in the right places.

I plan on keeping both installed for now because of Multiplayer.

Update: It has shipped via USPS first class. It should arrive on Saturday.

I have spoken with the distributor regarding real flight 8. They have advised an ETA of Late DEC / Early Jan and they will be able to advise a price closer to that date.

Mines here at the post office. So I will be watching for the postman all day tomorrow. Not bad for essentially free shipping as it went out Wednesday night. It will be interesting to see how many are on multiplayer this weekend.
