We are pleased to announce that an update for RealFlight Drone, version 1.00.028, is now available as a public beta download.

This free update adds new models to the existing software:

The Heli-Max FORM500 sports a unique canopy and advanced flight modes including Position Hold, Return to Home, and Headless mode which can be enabled independently.

The Tempest 250, a nimble homebuilt-style FPV racer, is fun to fly in all its modes but really shines in full Acro. We've included a variant with the FPV camera angled up 20 degrees for better visibility in fast forward flight.

Perform the following steps to obtain the update:
  1. Start the RealFlight Drone Launcher
  2. Click Additional Options, then Technical Support
  3. Click Enter Tech Support Code
  4. Enter the following code: PBEC#hx4q3xyhjjxe (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 1.00.028 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 Drone.

Please let us know if you discover any new bugs.
