The Real Flight 6.5 Simulator is Here

Nov 06, 2012 2 Comments by

Simulators do exactly what their name implies: they simulate. This means they are not true to life, but very close.  At least this has been the case until now. The Great Planes RealFlight 6.5 R/C Flight Simulator with InterLink Elite Controller and Heli Mega Pack with 47 extra helicopters is as close to real flying as you can get without being at the flying field.  Some of the best RC heli pilots in the world worked with RealFlight engineers to develop its flight characteristics so you can transition easily to your transmitter when you get to the flying field. Experience is a great teacher, and with the RealFlight 6.5 you can practice at home, day or night, and in any weather condition, to perfect your next maneuver. And one of the features I really like is the dual function reset button to fly again instantly after a crash, or I can hold it down to rewind the flight and continue flying from any point I choose.  Now when I make a mistake, I can relive that experience as many times as I want, seeing exactly where I went wrong. This is a great feature that helps me make the necessary control corrections to be a better pilot . The new QuickSelect feature also improves its versatility by allowing me to fly with the provided Interlink Controller, or with my own transmitter using its built-in interface, or use the interface and Interlink simultaneously using the unique MultiMode feature.  For more info visit realflight.com

    An already outstanding simulator gets even better!! Are the computer hardware requirements roughly the same as the previous version? Thanks…

    Yes they are Bill. If you are running a previous version of Real Flight, it should upgrade to 6.5.
