[TD]All models instantly scaleable It sounds unbelievable, but with the aeroflyRC7 arrives a new function, which increases the model selection infinitely. Each model, whether fixed wing model or helicopters, can be adjusted in size, from 50% to 200% of the original size!
Users can i.e. shrink a jet with 2.4 m wingspan to 1.2 m wingspan or increase the wingspan up to 4.8 m. Scaling is accomplished very easy via a slider control in the model pull down menu. When changing the size, the weight and flight physics are automatically adjusted. With this function any scale model, aerobatic model, glider or helicopter can be transformed either into an agile mini model or a slower reacting large model.
With this unique feature, the users can create a virtually infinite variety from the over 200 included models and even your individual dream model. And all this with just a click of the mouse!

[TD] Aerobatic box (F3A grid)
The aerobatics class has its own rules. One of the most important is to maintain certain altitude lines when performing aerobatic maneuvers. Overlaying a vertical aerobatic grid simplifies aerobatics training. Aerobatic pilots can target alignment, constant distance to the flight line as well as altitude.
Takeoff, landing, passes, thermal soaring, slope soaring or aerobatics, in all these disciplines, you will progress with a clean flying style. Thanks to the flight track display, all users can monitor their flight style.

Rajul I've tried to purchase the upgrade download and the web site does not allow me to right US address correctly like there's no option for state and postal code is in the wrong spot so PayPal keeps redirecting me back to change address.Is there anyway to go around this

Thanks
Leo

rajul 12-22-2013 12:45 PM

Leo, did you order through the Ikarus USA or Germany website?

Leohenriques 12-22-2013 12:59 PM

It was probably German I followed a link from rc groups.I did look at the USA web site but couldn't find the upgrade from 5 to 7 just the full download

rajul 12-22-2013 01:30 PM

I will feedback this problem to Ikarus Germany

apereira 12-23-2013 06:53 AM

I bought it form the Germany web site with my US address with no issues yesterday, I am downloading it right now, large files more than 2Gb!

Rajul,

Some time ago I told you about the trace on AFPD and how I neeed that in AF5, you asked my some months ago about it in detail, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! it is there now! I do not know how many people asked for it but was and is a great tool.
Now this SIM seems to be complete for F3A training, the trace makes it perfect as you can check your geometry on the fly, outstanding, can't wait to try it!

Best regards

Alejandro Pereira

Hello Alejandro! Yes, there were many requests for the grid from F3A/pattern flyers, plus other essential features which are now included. Let me know what you think about RC 7 after you have tried it. i think you will be very pleased!

samolot 01-06-2014 05:47 PM

Is there a way I can test how aerofly 7 would work on my laptop? I have tried almost every other flight sim out there and would love to give this a go but I want to be sure it will work well before I go forth with the investment.

Looks amazing!

apereira 01-07-2014 05:48 AM

I have it installed in a regular laptop, nothing special about the laptop, I use the laptop to be able to see it in my TV, it works very well, I will say, as long as the laptop is not more than two years old, pretty much any laptop can take any sim now.

samolot 01-07-2014 10:14 AM

How about this laptop? I have a Lenovo T520 with an i5 2.50GHz processor, 6 GB of Ram, and an nVIDIA NVS 4200M 1GB Video Card.

Hi samolot, your graphics card is too slow and does not meet the minimum requirement. I would invest in a better card. The system and 3D graphics card requirements are shown below:

Will it work in Parallels on a Mac? If so, can I buy the upgrade from 5 that I bought for Mac and have it work on Windows?

I'm not impressed with the backup disk. It only has the 487K startup application on it.
That doesn't save you the download time for the other 6GB.
A waste of $12.

Aside from that, it's fantastic. Good job!

Flakpak 01-18-2014 02:19 PM

I'm not impressed with the back-up, period!

As a user of Aerofly Professional De-Lux I had a comprehensive instruction manual, and had no problems finding my way around the settings, However there apparently is no manual for AeroflyRC7, and although most of the settings are self explanatory I am having problems setting up my controller, and am wondering whether I installed the download correctly.

There were two links given online after I paid for the download, and I might have chosen the wrong one. Wondering if I should attempt to uninstall the programme completely and download it again I raised this issue with Ikarus on 9th January, and forwarded my ".tml" and "DxDiag.text" files when requested, and am waiting for a reply.

Until today the programme has been fine except that, on every start-up, it does not recognise my controller (Spectrum DX7) and I have to scan for it and sometimes recalibrate and reconfigure it.

Today I tried to set up the rate switches and found it impossible. I don't know if I can use the rate switches on my transmitter, or if I can only use the Dual Rate Switch in "Advanced Channel Set-up". When I try to allocate a transmitter switch to the "D -R" switch, it is not accepted.
I have ended up with ailerons which only work very slowly and remain deflected when the transmitter stick is centred!


.

rajul 01-23-2014 10:29 AM

Agreed on the backup disc. It has been removed as it does not make sense. Ikarus is working on an english manual, so hang on.

As for the re-installation, you don't have to re-download using the Download Manager:
1. The Download Manager downloads all needed files and stores them in C:\<User>\My Documents\aeroflyRC7-Installer.
2. The latest download files is the Setup.exe
3. This Setup.exe will automatically be started when the download is finished, and controls the native aerofly installation.
4. The previous download files ( stored in: "C:\<User>\My Documents\aeroflyRC7-Installer" will not be deleted automatically.
5. The only thing you have to do after uninstalling aerofly7 from your PC is to start the Setup.exe again, located in "C:\<User>\My Documents\aeroflyRC7-Installer"

On your intermittent connection, please post a photo of your cable connections from the radio to the computer. This will be helpful to assess the problem.

As for dual rates, you should use the rate switches in your radio but calibrate with rates at high, not low. You could use the programmable mixes in your radio but disable them when you are doing calibration.

Hi Samolot,

I am getting 50-60 FPS on my Lenovo W520 with Nvidia Quadro 1000M, in Ultra quality with HDR and 1920-1200 full screen mode. Only when the model is unrealistically close to the pilot then there is an occasional drop to ~20 FPS. I did not need to lower any graphics settings. And it's with 2x AA setting. There are a few lower graphics modes, so I'd guess that you should be able to find a working one. Disclaimer: I am not familiar with Nvidia NVS 4200.

Cheers,

Smok ;-)
