I think that is the update for existing RF8 owners. I think it is free if you purchased after Sep 1, 2018

Kind of sucks to pay for minor updates for a software that is not even one year old.

About $2.50 per plane... For a bunch of planes that I'm pretty sure there are GP analogues for already in RF.

This is something that ought to be a free digital download...

Is there a ready to go desktop computer I can buy that will support Realflight 8 without spending thousands for a gaming computer?

It's Realflight X which required a gaming computer.

Hi jpurcha - thank you for the response. I have an HP laptop but doubt it has the horsepower to support the graphics in Realflight 8. The laptop is not expandable to add a graphics card so I am thinking I will need a desktop of some sort. Just wondering if I can go buy the low end desktop of HP or dell and it will work, or if I need to buy something with the graphics card suggested in Realflight 8. I bought the original Real flight and haven't messed with a simulator in 15 years. Now I think it would be nice as I rarely get a chance to go to the field.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Hmm, so if I'm interpreting things right, this version has replaced the original version on the store (I'm assuming you get everything you get in the original package with the horizon edition). But for those that already own it, they're stuck having to pay an upgrade fee if they want the same features?

I've been pondering for a while updating to 8, I've been running 6.5 but haven't used it as much as I should, and I'm thinking this winter maybe I'll try to dedicate some time to actually doing some sim work, so it might be worth updating for me.
