We will start taking orders this Monday on first come first serve. There will be an upgrade version available, however no details have been given. With new and improved physics, especially on the smaller birds, this should be VERY interesting!

----------------------

The long awaited AEROFLY PROFESSIONAL DELUXE (USB)
Initially we will only be getting the interface version. The Game Commander version is probably not available before January 2005. the most popular features of the previous Aerofly have been retained.

New Features:

· Over 12 unique airfields (several of them with stunningly realistic 360 degree photographic sceneries

· Superbly detailed 3-D indoor scenery for use with Shock and Slow Flyers

· Over 50 extremely detailed models (gas and electric powered) including 3-D Aerobats, TOC torque machines, Biplanes, Helicopters, Jets (incl. a Harrier), Slow, Park and Shock Flyers, Gliders, Slope Soarers and more.

· The most realistic simulation for 3-D flying

· Incredible flight performance due to our new Physics and Flight Code

· Real environment reflection mapping for stunningly realistic model presentations (scenery is reflected from the model surface)

· Fog and smoke simulation (fully customizable)

· New lighting effects like sunlight reflections

· Superior wind modeling. The terrain shape is taken into account when computing wind, turbulence and thermals

· Cockpit mode with real instruments

· Practice free-style with music

· The best collision detection in an R/C flight simulator

· Autorotation practice for model helicopters

· 3-D Doppler Sound Effect (even on gliders!)

· Absolutely realistic ground handling

· Break-apart aircraft feature (during extremely high G maneuvers or crashes)

· USB interface for your own transmitter or with the Game Commander

· 4-channel Game Commander with additional 2 switches and an analog channel

· Easy Plug & Play installation: no calibration or drivers required

· Split screen capability

· Competition events such as drag racing, pylon racing, balloon popping, spot-landing

· Multi-window picture-in-picture viewing

· Scale-like operating retracts and sweep wings


Aerofly Professional Deluxe (interface version) 179.00 (first quantities late November)

As you can tell AFP Deluxe has also concentrated on the 3D models as well as the photo realistic models. Personally I like the 3D worlds better then the photo real worlds, I've been a gamer for many years and that's just the way I like it better.

RE: Aero Fly Deluxe - New Version
 
can you collide with the objects in the photo sceneries? and is there multiplayer? and can you go behind an object in the photo sceneries?

any idea if all the downloadable airplanes currently available will also work in Deluxe......


darn...I think I just drooled on my keyboard waiting for this release!:D

Mudsurfer: If this is comparible to XTR you SHOULD be able to do everything in the photo scenaries. It just that they use the photos as the opbject.

XTR graphics were well good, so frikin realistic the shadows and all, hope deluxe is just as.

Yes all current planes work with AFP. They have improved the physics engine, not the models. I just can't imagine what an improved physics engine is going to be like. I'm as excited as any of your are to get it going. That gym and Shocky's looks awesome.

Mudsurfer1234 11-05-2004 11:08 PM

RE: Aero Fly Deluxe - New Version
 
and you can make your own planes right? and download new ones for free?

sorry for all the questions, but im trying to decide between AFPD and G3

RE: Aero Fly Deluxe - New Version
 
I was on the Ipacs web page; they said that they are working on how the upgrade is going to work. They mentioned that it would be $80 Euro which converts to $103.00 US.
To upgrade you would need to send your original AFP disk (NOT THE UPGRADE DISK) and the old interface cable for the upgrade. I have no problem with that as this is a lot better than upgrading to G3 for a $50.00 credit. LeeU

Flyingbaer, thanks for the clarification

RE: Aero Fly Deluxe - New Version
 
I did notice if you look at the pics that Mudsurfer got from the rc-sim.de website one can tell that the shadows and the blades line up with the tables and white post in the back ground in both pics, it looks like the fence was moved and not the heli. LeeU

We are going to start taking orders in just a few more days or less. We want to make sure we have all the accurate information before we post it all.

Price for new AFP Deluxe USB Interface MSRP is $179.95.
Price for new AFP Deluxe USB Commander MSRP is $219.95.

AeroFlyPro.com is going to take pre-orders at $169.95 and $209.95.

There is a new Commander controller that rivals G3 with 6 or 7 channels and knob for flaps/nozzle the G3 version.

You can hook the Commander directly to your USB, there is no daisy-chaining like in G3.

Still have no final details on upgrade pricing or details. Should be coming soon.

$103 for an upgrade sounds like a lot of money to me. Seems to me they could/would do better for existing customers.

I am not inclined to upgrade at this rate, but I do like AFP. I just do not feel the extras are worth $103.

I feel the same way . It's about $ 130.00 CDN for an upgrade
IMO , Its a little too steep
AFP sells for $ 189.00 CDN

RE: Aero Fly Deluxe - New Version
 
I agree too. If they have not made it easier to adjust the model parameters and paint the skins and such I think I will hold off unless I can upgrade and get the controller for a fair price.

It's really not much better than the rumored $50 G3 rebate that I heard about, and if I need to send my original disk and interface back I will be dead in the water until they turn it around. They need to sharpen their pencil a bit.

Mudsurfer1234 11-09-2004 03:38 PM

RE: Aero Fly Deluxe - New Version
 
could i use the G2 controller on AFPD? and set as a joystick like they say to do in AFP?

Thanks,
Scott

RE: Aero Fly Deluxe - New Version
 
I just learned about aero fly..I have been using the g2 and enjoyed it .then realflight comes out with G3..Soooooo I contacted them and I gather I have to buy a new system (G3) and get a 50 dollar rebate ..wellllll,I am looking at 3D flying and I like what I see with aero and likely will invest in aero fly..I suspect alot of G2 pilots will discover this great software and switch..I realize realflight will have 3D as well but I love the graphics on aero..I amassuming that I can get usb with the deluxe version??and if I get the 139 dollar version as long as I buy the interface cable to go with my futaba radios I can use it right????

Mudsurfer1234 11-09-2004 04:12 PM

RE: Aero Fly Deluxe - New Version
 
are there the 3D sceneries in AFPD? like the pic of the shockflyers? i don't really care for the photo sceneries, i like the 3D scenreies better, but i haven't seen any outdoor 3D scenes yet, only the indoor.

Thanks,
Scott
