New RF7 public beta (7.00.027) is available

7.00.027 is now available as a free public beta download.

Balloon Burst III adds a variety of challenging new levels that are sure to test your skills in different ways! All you have to do is earn a medal in the Balloon Burst and Balloon Burst II challenges to unlock it. (Final level times are still TBD.)

We're also giving out a new aircraft: the Great Planes Proud Bird! This EF1 (electric formula one) race plane also makes a great sport flyer.

This update includes fixes for several of the more prominent bugs reported lately on the forums. A couple of fixes were rushed for inclusion in this public beta, and as a result they did not receive as much testing as usual. We still believe this version to be stable. There may be lingering issues, however. As always, we welcome your feedback.

See the full release notes below for more info, and please let us know if you discover any new bugs.

This version is compatible with 7.00.025 for multiplayer.

Perform the following steps to obtain the update:
  1. Start the RealFlight 7 Launcher
  2. Click Additional Options, then Technical Support
  3. Click Enter Tech Support Code
  4. Enter the following code: B#jj2q8355fh8x (If successful, you will see a message saying "You are now registered to use the Public Beta site until the new version is posted to official download site.")
  5. Go back to the main Launcher menu and click Registration/Updates
  6. Make sure that in the bottom left corner it says Temporary Public Beta. If not, try reentering the code
  7. Click Update to Latest Version; alternatively, click Update to Specific Version, choose 7.00.027 from the list, and click OK.

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 7.
