AeroFly RC8 - Airplane & Heli simulator - Users thread


Halloa people

as most of you probably know by now the new version of Ikarus's Aerofly has recently been released!
Happy days! I am not sponsored by them in any way, but to me it is THE airplane / heli simulator..

In this thread anyone can post their experience with the sim.. I'll allso be posting a few video's
of my own..

And to start things of.. Here is a video on how to get started with RC8..
This is actually quite unique: In this video I show you how to install a trial version.. This is not offered directly by Ikarus (but they did O.K. me posting this)

In this one I use Aerofly only as a tool (for you) to learn to fly LOS with Multirotors.. I come across quite a lot of people that can Only fly FPV :O

I have both AF 5.7 and AF8 now. I can't get the planes to hover as well on AF8. Especially the F3P plane. It's impossible to hover no matter what adjustments I make. I'm quite good at hovering. I have no trouble in AF5.7. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Kip

That is weird.. I have done some hovering in the new (and quite a bit in the old) version.. I did not notice it was a lot harder, but I allso switched radio's :$

There have been some changes in how realistic the wind can be (depends on settings).. In general I would say AF8 is more realistic then 5.7 (quite a bit)

I see that Ikarus have recently released the AeroFly RC8 for Mac. That’s great, I am looking forward to test it out, but I am disappointed to see that you pay the same for upgrading from AFRC7 as you do to buy a new program. Isn’t that a strange pricing policy? Why not use the opportunity to show loyal customers some appreciation and give a discount. (In reality a loyal AFRC7 user will have to pay double price to upgrade (RC7+RC8).. does not make sense to me.
Anyone else thinking the same?

I think you could try sending Ikarus a note on this, as there IS an upgrade option for the PC version..

I had upgraded my Mac version from 7 to 8 the day I received their email notification of release. But it crashes every time of initialisation. Reported the error to Apple and hope that it will be working soon... love the 7. Is it normal that I can still play with version 7 even upgraded to 8?

I want to get RC8. I have a Mac and a Futaba 10J radio. I am going to need an USB adapter to use my Futaba with this. There seems to be a lot of confusion on what adapters will work and what wont. Does anybody know what adapters will actually work? Thanks.
