What the...I upgraded to RF6, but it wont let me download anything above 6.000.054. Do I have to buy the RF6.5 upgrade or is it that RF6.5 is just not availible yet?

it takes a while before they let rf6.5 avaiable for free download. its gonna take a while before free upgrading most likely about 3 months or so im not sure how long i used g5 before i was allowed to upgrade to g5.5. so just wait and time will tell cause they wont release it right away. cause if they did that they would not make as much money. so they wait so they can get as many sales as possible then release it for free download. thats what i did for g5.5 and once rf7 comes out i will get that upgrade disk and go from there.

RF v6.5 is available for free download already. It's still in public beta, but you can get it if you like. You just have to follow the directions at www.knifeedge.com found at the bottom of this post: http://www.knifeedge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28961

Jbourke owns the company that makes Real Flight. He also owns these forums. I think it's perfectly legal.

RF beta versions have almost always been stable. It's very easy to revert to your old version if you don't like it.

For those of you with RealFlight versions G4-G5.5, we will have the upgrade to 6.5 available by the end of the month. This will be available from most any hobby retailer. Additional information is available here: http://www.realflight.com/upgrade.html

As has already been mentioned; if you already have RealFlight 6 the update to 6.5 will be a free update. Just make sure you have the software configured to check for new updates when you launch RealFlight. More information may be found here: http://www.realflight.com/free_updates/index.html

For complete information on RealFlight 6.5 go to www.realflight.com

6.5 is pretty incredible, we hope you enjoy it, and learn from it.

Steve

it isnt illegal since real flight let the beta out. i think when they go to sell it they will have the people that downloaded it revert back to their old system and then pay for it unless they are rf6. im g5.5 right now. i will juzt wait till rf7 comes out someday and buy that.

The update to 6.5 is free to all that already own RealFlight 6. Those that downloaded the beta version will not have revert back to RealFlight 6, they will just download the final release version of RealFlight when it becomes available. The beta version of RealFlight 6.5 is only available to those that currently have RealFlight 6.

It's best to keep RealFlight up to date. With 6 we started doing free updates almost monthly that included new flying sites and aircraft. Additionally, you will typically get a reduced price on upgrades when you own the most current product.

To clear some confusion, you can only update to RF6.5 for free if you have RF6. There is no "reverting to your old system." This update has nothing to do with versions of RF prior to RF6.

Was seriously hoping the non-beta download of 6.5 would be available by now. I got a bunch of people coming over tomorrow to drink beer and fly sim on the projector. Stupid cold weather forcing us indoors.

So update to 6.5. Don't let the word 'beta' scare you. There have been times when the release version is the same as the 'beta' version, though usually they make a tweak or two not even worth mentioning. I see no issues with 6.5. I've been using it since it was available.
