FlightAxis Link Updates: 12 channels and no unlock

A new beta version is available in both the DVD/Tower version and the Steam version of RealFlight 8.

This beta does two things for FlightAxis Link users:
  • Increases the number of control channels available over the Link from 8 to 12
  • Removes the requirement to unlock in order to use the Link

In this beta, the FlightAxis Link is always active and listening for a connection. We will add an option to turn it off in a future public version, so that you can use RealFlight with and without it. There is only a modest performance hit when not connected, but not all users need the network interface.

For now, you can simply join the beta and connect!

For instructions to join the beta, refer to the announcement thread here.
