Realflight 8 - Come on over!

I haven't flown 7.5 since g8 was released. In fact, I haven't flown on a flat screen since I got the Oculus. Lower resolution and frame rate... but a WAY better experience!

And 8 has fixed both the heli physics and sound... helis have BARK again! So I was surprised when I dusted off 7.5 today and found the multiplayer is still pretty crowded.

I've been simming on RF since g3, and usually the migration to the newest version is pretty swift. But not this time for some reason.
To me, the jump from 7.5 to 8 packs the most bang for the buck... even if you don't do VR. The difference in sound & physics had been a LOOOONG time coming and is well worth the price of admission. Not to mention a few new models. And VR is the cherry on top!

IMO they really got it right with g8, and I hope more of us make the jump soon.

I have them both installed and I agree that 8 really gives you the touches 7.5 was lacking. Love them blade farts.

Hey SF!

I still practice on RF 7.5 8 and AccuRC.
Both in VR and a flat screen!

Made some progress too!
