I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities. I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good). I haven't...
Ripmax RC Simulator is an advanced RC training & recreation program for the PC that's lightyears ahead of the competition.
Choose from any one of ten flying fields - each one is fully texture mapped and 3 dimensional, making this, we feel, the most realistic simulator available. The only thing that isn't real is that you can control the weather at the flying field!
Every aircraft has been modeled using true physics simulation software, so it performs and responds just like the real thing. Move aileron, elevator or rudder controls on the transmitter - see the surfaces move and the model respond, move the throttle and hear the engine note change as the plane reacts, and of course fly into something and see the crash damage - happily the rebuild just takes seconds and costs nothing!
This is a limited version of the program designed to allow you a look at what RC Simulator has to offer. While all the features are visible, only a handful are accessible in the demo. Flights are limited to 5 minutes each while the program itself will expire 15 days after installation.
