Real Flight G5 vs Real Flight 6


Sorry for being a noob here, but what exactly is the difference between the two? Is RF 6 just the updated version (superceded) of RF G5 or is RF G5 a completely different sim (more advanced features, more craft, etc) compared to RF 6?

So did RF drop the "G" nomenclature from their RF brand name and just keep the numeral revisions? I guess that's really my question since I'm seeing both software packages and thinking they are different. Such as, possibly seeing a RF G6 in the near future all while being sold concurrently with RF 6.

You sure read alot into that. I think Bourke saidd something about the letter G looking a bit like the number 6. Whatever their reason, it was rather trivial.

No, there will not be a G6. G5 is different than RF6. For that matter G4 is different than G5. G3 is different than G4. G2 is different than G3. You could have G2, G3, G4, G5, and RF6 all installed on the same machine, if you wanted.

Ah, I see now. I was just under the impression that RF had a "G" special series in which I was expecting a RF G6 in the future.

I'm new to the hobby and just picked up another simulator, but ended up scratching my head when I saw both RF G5 and RF 6 in various online sites and prints.

Thanks for helping clear up my confusion!
