Default G5.5 to G6 upgrade of Realflight?

I currently run G5.5, is the upgrade to 6 for $50 worth it?

I think it is. RF seems to run smoother have less glitches and I can land much easier. Plenty of free uploads also. Look for the cute little gator and his airboat.

I got it a while back and it is smoother, but the wind is unrealistic, I have never had my plane flip over in 15 MPH winds.

Make sure you adjust your wind variablity.

You can have winds set to 50% variablity and your 15mph wind turns into 30+mph gusts which WILL flip your plane over.

BTW: 15MPH is indeed enough to flip a plane on landings...
