We are pleased to announce that RealFlight version 9.50.024 is now available as a free public beta download for all versions of the software (DVD, Tower Hobbies Digital, and Steam)!

We've addressed some reported issues from the initial 9.5 release and threw in a few more niceties. Read on for details.

  • Added 7 new scenarios
  • Added support for heli water spawns
  • Updated the Radio Interface Help document
  • E-flite Night Timber X 1.2m (both variants): Reversing motor is controlled by Ch. 7 (Switch A on the InterLink DX), making it more readily accessible to different controller types
  • E-flite Night Timber X 1.2m (both variants): Motor defaults to forward direction when Ch. 7 is unmapped or centered
  • E-flite V1200 1.2m: Responds properly to steering input while taxiing
  • Hangar 9 Pitts S2B 50-60cc: Added smoke, controlled by Ch. 7 (Switch A on the InterLink DX)
  • Schweizer Float Heli: Changed launch type to From Water
  • All E-flite, Hangar 9, HobbyZone, and ParkZone aircraft: Added switch summary info to ends of descriptions
  • Eli Field: Changed pilot spawn name to be more descriptive
  • Sandy Point: Added a water spawn for float helis
