D/L version 430, not as good as 410 but better than 426. several bugs to fix. after flying a heli after the first load it crashes even before you have time to spool it up.

I would venture to say that it isnt manufacturers causing the problem, but Dion from Aerofly Pro. He has had a personal vendetta against Rick for some time. I dont think there is any love loss between either party.

No it is not a manufacturer. It is one or two people causing the problem. One of their products includes a flying dog house and I am wondering if they got the OK to use it since it is actually copy righted.

If we really want to get technical then it could be said that there should be no aircraft modeled or simulated after a real one unless the modeler is getting permission from the manufacturer or originator of the real thing.

I have downloaded all the four aircrafts from your site and tried them. I loved the Extra 330S and Katana. Great work.

Thank you

Today I upgraded my G3 to the non-beta release from RealFlight (3.00.430), then installed the Red Bull Extra 330S and the Katana Mini. Thanks Rick and Nemo for all the hard work! The graphics are outstanding.

The Extra flew very well for me. I did experience a problem with the Katana Mini needing nearly full elevator trim to fly straight and level at cruise speed. Anyone else encounter this issue?

With regards to the mini try deleting it and then re-install it that should fix the flight problem.

Ok, the reinstall seems to have helped. The elevator trim slider is now adjusted to about 1/2 of the way between neutral and full scale 'up' for level flight.

Note for anyone else trying this: deleting a custom plane from within the simulator didn't remove all the associated files and directories. Because of this, my first attempt at a reinstall resulted in some error messages from G3. Going back and manually deleting all the 'katana' related directories and files resulted in a clean install on the second try.
