This is something I have wanted to do for a long time and I'm excited to announce that the RCG online airfield is live!! I have created a RealFlight airfield for everyone.
If you have the RealFlight flight sim then you know it has an online feature that allows you to fly with other users. We have created an RCGroups based airfield with all of the fun features listed above. There are a few things you will need to enjoy everything:
There have been custom designed items in the RCG field that you will need to download. These include RCGroups FPV gates, feather flags for the turns and banners. You can get the whole airfield with one download. Once you get this imported into RealFlight you can also utilize the Multiplayer feature to fly this field with other RCG users. All you need to do is go to the multiplayer section, click "join" and find the official RCGroups airfield.
If you intend on racing on the FPV course we created, then you need a quad built for the job. We took the Pocket Racer design and tweaked it to work for our field. The FPV cam is set to what we think is the right angle to keep up speed and still be able to see where you are going. Jason Cole and Matt Gunn have both flown this quad on the course and it's their favorite so far!
Be sure to remember to select the view/camera type/FPV. You can also select the nose camera on craft with no FPV cam.
You can fly whatever plane you like. We have been testing out various birds for the winged craft FPV course. The electric Gee Bee is awesome (found in the RF airplane options). If you want to see how good you really are try the L-39 - WOW! I will mention that for just pure fun the Flyzone Calypso is great. You can fly all the courses with this electric sailplane, as well as the tree course. If you accidentally hit your prop and the motor shuts off you can throttle down and then throttle back up to keep going - tons of fun!
