Night Flying- Just because the sun is down, doesn’t mean that you can’t fly. The same is true with RealFlight night flying. Pick a nighttime airport and watch as your aircraft lights up the sky.
PhotoFields™- RealFlight 6.5 also includes ultra-realistic PhotoField airports. Using incredible high resolution digital images, RealFlight PhotoField airports are as real as it gets. The Import feature allows you to use your own panoramic photos to create new flying sites.
“Full Coverage” collision detection- Instead of using sensors at only a few points along the aircraft, “Full Coverage” blankets the entire aircraft with detection points ensuring that every part of an aircraft will not only register a strike but, will react authentically. Contact can result in damage ranging from minor handling problems to spectacular crashes complete with realistic sound effects.
TruFlo Wind Dynamics™- RealFlight 6.5 introduces modelers to R/C’s most realistic wind model. All the components of TruFlo Wind Dynamics work together to create the single most accurate wind field in any simulation. Wind impacts every facet of your flight, just as it would at the local field.
AccuModel™ Aircraft Editor- RealFlight 6.5’s aircraft editor is the most powerful and most flexible editor ever introduced in an R/C simulator. AccuModel allows you to change virtually every aspect of your model with ease. It places over 1,500 airfoils at your disposal, a multitude of propellers, and much, much more! AccuModel brings up a wire-frame model for easy reference and highlights the editing area. Make a change and it’s immediately reflected on-screen, ready for review and revision.
Flying Sites with over 5,000 square miles to explore- RealFlight’s TrueLife Terrain™ goes beyond the limitations of traditional simulator flight. Created and mapped from satellite imagery, RealFlight 6.5’s landscape looks as “right” and richly varied as the view from your front door. Digital elevation data brings it all into accurate perspective.
A living, breathing environment- Everything in RealFlight 6.5’s 3D world is as realistic as possible; complete with depth and details that transcend the traditional “billboard” look of other simulators. You’ll see leaves and branches that dance in a passing breeze and clouds that roll by with the prevailing winds.
FlexiField™ flying site editor- The FlexiField™ editor takes you beyond 2D scenes into a 3D environment rich in new objects and editing options. Customize an existing field with new foliage, different objects, or both. Create a new field with nothing more than a mouse, imagination and a few simple keystrokes.
InterLink™ Elite Controller- RealFlight 6.5’s InterLink Elite controller functions as a controller, an interface, or both. Its push-button is capable of resetting and rewinding the aircraft, or hand-launching a sailplane. Additionally, the InterLink Elite is the key to navigating the QuickSelect menus – select alternative aircraft, flying sites and more, all from the controller.
Fly Split Screen- RealFlight 6.5’s MultiMode™ option allows two modelers to fly simultaneously on one PC. It’s perfect for practicing formation flight, a game of tag, or personalized flight instruction.
VirtualRevolution™ sound technology- Doppler-correct stereo sounds heighten the realistic effect with true sound recordings of 2-stroke, 4-stroke, turbine, electric, ducted fan and gasoline engines. As the aircraft crosses the field, the engine sound follows, just like its R/C counterpart.
RotoSonics™ technology- Recreating distinctive engine/blade sounds with startling accuracy. The sounds are so lifelike, you’ll swear you are at the field!
VFI (Virtual Flight Instruction)- VFI gives you personal flight lessons from R/C’s leading experts. Using VFI, you can select a maneuver (loop, roll, etc.) from an extensive list of options. VFI then demonstrates the maneuver on-screen, performed by an expert. While you watch, the voice of the pilot/instructor will explain how to perform the maneuver.
AFR (Advanced Flight Recorder)- This feature allows the pilot to not only view prerecorded maneuvers, but also to record maneuvers of his/her own as well. RealFlight 6.5 even allows you to record your own audio for personalized flight instruction. This feature also allows you to pause, speed up, slow down, and loop the performance. The pilot has the option to activate the digitized transmitter display, so that he/she can view the radio input while flying.
